Vision inspection of decorative candles
For a leading manufacturer of decorative candles, we developed a comprehensive, multi-stage system for product inspection. In the project we used components from Datalogic and Keyence
Decorative products are subjected to detailed inspection for aesthetic values – including correct printing, central position of the wick (accuracy of up to 1 mm and 5 degrees of deviation), proper flooding (even up to 1 mm in height) or mechanical damage.
Moreover, such features as correctness of the label – its position as well as correctness of data and barcode – are controlled.
The system is equipped with a functional operator panel. It allows to:
- Display of inspection results with photos,
- Display of general and detailed statistics of rejected items,
- Display of images of last rejected pieces,
- Making changes to the vision inspection settings.
When the system detects a defect, the candle is removed from the line with a pneumatic ejector.
