Cosmetic inspection

Flange with cracks

Measurements regarding cosmetic inspection includes information about chips • airlines • dirt • stones • knots • scratches • bad melts • fissures • glass particles • cracks • >> . The measurements are usually performed during rotation over 360° (contact inspection) but none contact cosmetic inspection is also performed. The cosmetic inspection performed on formed/shaped products requires dedicated illumination and adequate viewing angles.

Dedicated illumination

Dark & Bright field illuminationVarious illumination types may be needed for complete cosmetic inspection. Some defects are clearly visible with Bright Field (back light) illumination while other cosmetic defects can be better detected by using Dark Field illumination. The type of illumination depends on the type of defects and the location on the products. Using flashing LED lighting various illumination types can be integrated into one (1) inspection system.


Multiple views

Multiple camera viewsFor formed products, multiple viewing angles may be needed for accurate inspection. With a single view, a lot of defects can be detected but usually specific defects may not be seen. Adding additional viewing angled provide a synergy in defect detection (overlapping in detection). Also for specific locations (e.g, flange of syringe, top of vial, >>) additional viewing angles may be needed.
