Bottle Cans

Pressco’s innovative solution for bottle cans employs multiple cameras to inspect the inside and outside of the bottles for cosmetic defects and structural flaws that may affect the integrity of the container. Multiple inspection locations exist for bottle can inspection based on the production line layout and production equipment, light tester and conveyance equipment types. Inspection modules and sensors are strategically placed, allowing defects to be traced back to equipment components. Pressco’s advanced Draw Mark Filtering algorithm distinguishes between legitimate defects and harmless draw marks, preventing good cans from being rejected.
