The last possible point to detect and reject incompletely packed, broken and badly filled containers is between the packer and the palletizer.
With the new BBULL VK-X (full car-ton/full crate inspection) it is possible to detect faulty cartons or crates and remove them from the production process. BBULL VK-X scans the cartons with an extremely compact X-ray tube.
This principle presents for many applications an essential advantage compared with optical systems or scales. The X-ray method allows an inspection of open or closed cartons at very high conveyor speeds.
When a faulty carton or crate is detected it can either be removed from the production process or an acoustic or optical alarm can be activated.
The installation, operation and ser-vice of the system is simple. The adjustment of the parameters is realized for the most part by the TEACH IN mode.
Self-diagnosis and malfunction display in plain text guarantee high reliability and easy service.
Existing systems can be easily upgraded with BBULL VK-X .
BBULL VK-X has a wide range of applications. It is the appropriate inspection system for reliable quality assurance where bottles, cans or similar containers are packed in cartons. The system is also suitable for shrink- wrap packagings.
- inspection of completely packed cartons or crates
- empty carton inspection after the unpacker
- missing bottles and cans inspection
- inspection of broken bottles
- rough fill level inspection of bottles and cans inside the closed cartons
Mode of Operation
The system consists of a sensor bridge with height adjustment and the control unit BBULL PC-400. The sensor bridge is equipped with an X- ray source and a highly advanced detector.
While passing the sensor bridge the carton or crate is scanned by harm-less X-rays. The evaluation of the sensor signals is performed by the control unit that can either energise a rejection unit or activate a signal (optical-/acoustical).
