Designed around the customer’s needs, Metalsight encapsulates SACMI's approach to metal inspection vision systems. A highly modular structure means Metalsight users can easily switch from one can format to another or to lids and twist-offs simply by replacing the illuminator so it matches the desired format
Fast, precise height adjustment
. MetalSight has the key advantage of a motor-driven illuminator, allowing fast yet precise adjustment of the on-product illumination height controlled by the inspection recipe
. The system increases inspection efficiency and reliability, prevents human error and ensures perfect repeatability of checks.
Simple and Compact
. Metalsight also has the advantage of a compact, integrated all-in-one structure. All electronic components are housed in a single compartment mounted directly on the device, eliminating the need for an electrical cabinet and an external PC. Smart design minimizes the required factory floor space and streamlines system management and maintenance.
. What does ‘modular’ actually mean... and what advantages does it bring? The ‘module’ architecture of the image capture system delivers greater flexibility during changeovers
or when an additional inspection station is needed. In other words, the only modification relative to the specific product to be inspected concerns ‘image capture’: the mechanical framework and control panel remain exactly the same. Moreover, Metalsight replaces heavy, bulky, floor-mounted electrical panels and PCs units with small, light modules that can be integrated onto existing lines with ease.
. MetalSight runs comprehensive checks on the product:
- Lugged caps: functional checks on internal panel (curl, lugs, liner and central panel); checks on external decoration (presence-absence of decoration, color plane registration errors, color variations, contamination, black specks, scratches, stains)
- Cans: flange, side wall, weld line and bottom inspection
- Lid: curl, compound, shoulder and central panel inspection
- Easy Open lids: presence and position of tab, rivet defects, presence of post-repair coating, shoulder and panel inspection.
