Container/Lid Inspection

The opportunities are endless for the application of machine vision and robotic technology in the manufacturing and packaging of consumer products.

At Interactive Design, we have been helping our customers improve the efficiency of their production processes since 1987. We have implemented process control improvements for every stage of production from the time raw materials are received at the plant until the final product is packaged and ready for shipment. These process improvements have been accomplished through the use of machine vision technology, robots, and innovative material handling systems.

Item for inspection:

  • Injection molded container lid for consumer food products
  • Each lid has a paper insert identifying the brand and flavor 

Inspection requirements:

  • Verify that paper inserts in all lids have the same flavor and brand, for each machine cycle 

Production environment:

  • Injection molding , multiple lids produced in each machine cycle
  • Lids are inspected along a moving belt, as they exit from the injection-molding machine
  • If any lid fails to match the combination of a specific flavor and brand, all lids from the cycle are rejected 

Interactive Design solution:

  • Machine vision cameras and lights mounted over the moving belt
  • Inspection occurs as lids pass under the cameras
  • Communication with the customer`s reject mechanism when any lid fails to match the combination of a specific flavor and brand
