Quality Control Solutions

Quality Control - image from a beverage applicationIn addition to improving efficiency and flexibility, product quality and yield, package safety and integrity, camera vision systems can also be implemented on the processing side to:

  • reduce scrap
  • improve productivity
  • improve quality control
  • enhance brand image.

For example, a vision system can sort food and beverage products by colour or shape. It can detect defects, verify proper assembly, detect fill levels, count and provide guidance for robotic pick and place, all for improved manufacturing and packaging flexibility.

Supply Chain Management

The better and more precise the track and trace system, the faster you can identify and resolve problems. If profit margins are narrow, reduced manufacturing and supply chain costs can often be the difference between profit and loss. Vision and ID systems provide a tremendous amount of process data for continuous process improvement.

Traceability

  • Improves management of work in process
  • Reduces inventory
  • Optimises availability and use of production tools
  • Minimises distribution of non-conforming products

Range of Inspection and ID Solutions

We can offer a wide range of vision and ID solutions to provide you with a solution for every application and budget.

Application Examples

  • Check label position
  • Verify presence of caps and safety seals on bottles
  • Carry out colour sorting and inspection
  • Sort products or orientate them for filling or packaging
  • Check for missing, incorrect, or damaged product
  • Inspect for particles or flawed product in bottles and other packaging
  • Part identification
  • Find a part, take a measurement and make an inspection during the manufacturing process

Our range of vision sensors, vision systems and 3D laser profilers all perform inspections using machine vision technology, which can often be highly-detailed tasks or on high-speed production lines. This could be positioning touch screens on smart phones to micron-level accuracy, reading oil obscured DPM (direct part marked) codes or verifying fill levels or cap inspection on drink bottles.

Acrovision has also created Validator, a suite of in-line Package and Label Inspection Systems to monitor and control production lines to ensure 100% correct product in the correct packaging with the correct data.

Test and Evaluation

Our qualified engineers carry out feasibility studies and provide evaluation reports to confirm we can offer a cost-effective and robust solution. We then install and commission to our customer’s requirements as well as offering ongoing support cover.
