Intravis Vision Systems of Germany has released the CrownWatcher – an automated vision inspection system which ensures that closures are perfectly applied to bottles/jars.
CrownWatcher inspects the complete neck area of a bottle or jar and can process up to 1,200 objects per minute. When the position, identity or quality of a cap is not correct, the defective products are ejected, without interrupting the production.
The system also checks the following:
- Wrong closure / identity (colour/print)
- Damaged or Missing tamper evident band
- Elevated tamper evident band
- Crooked closure
- Bullnose or domed top

The inspection systems are designed to perform in-line inspection of plastic, glass and metal packaging and components and are able to find and eject defects including; shape, colour, contamination, dimensional variances etc.
