Camera-based bottle alignment for labelling in the food and beverage industry
In addition to standard equipments, individual design bottles with special label equipment aligned precisely to the cap or other marks become the norm. Whether swing-top, relief, alignment marks on the base of the bottle or glass seam – our ROTA container alignment unit with state-of-the-art camera and LED lighting technology and servo-controlled turntables guarantees the perfect positioning of the container before labelling.
Camera and LED lighting technology
We use only state-of-the-art CCD cameras as well as long-life, high-performance LED lighting systems to guarantee reliable checking and visualisation on the touch-sensitive control panel The camera head can be manually adjusted via a meter or pre-programmed according to the specific container type.
The alignment takes place via camera detection and servo-controlled container turntable.
The KS container alignment station is specially designed for the labelling requirements of swing-top bottles and containers that have to be aligned in accordance with special criteria such as base and side cams, glass seam, relief and other alignment marks. The detection takes place via state-of-the-art camera and LED lighting technology. Visualisation connection to the control unit with traceability function. The container positioning takes place via servo-controlled container turntables.
The performance range of our checking and inspection equipment of up to 20,000 bottles/hr is specially designed for the requirements of mid-sized breweries and bottling plants. Higher performances are possible at any time thanks to our flexible modular system.
For new plants and plant modernisations
A major advantage of the ROTA container alignment unit is its low space requirement and simple integration into existing systems.
Of course, we also take care of the complete machine and control connection, including faulty bottles ejection stations.
