Cap Safety Seal Check

Ensure the freshness and quality of bottled food products

/uploadedImages/2014_Taxonomy/Industries/DS_Applications/_Cap-Seal.jpg

Challenge:

Prevent imporoperly sealed bottles from entering into the production stream.

Solution:

When the surface of the cap is depressed when the bottle is sealed properly. When the cap surface is popped out, it means the seal is faulty. A DS1000 was installed to inspect each bottle cap to ensure the integrity of every seal. The height of the middle portion of the cap was inspected. If the button was popped up, it created a height difference of 1.5mm compared to a depressed cap.

Results:

The number of faulty products shipped to consumers was dramatically reduced. This improved overall product quality and greatly reduced the risk of contaminated products getting into the the hands of customers.
