Capsule visual inspection system
Capsule visual inspection system CVIS-NS-V1

Capsule visual inspection system
Single Line

High-accuracy 12-angle inspection system
Four 3CMOS color line sensor cameras are used to inspect capsules from 12 angles with high accuracy. The head and body are inspected separately with high accuracy to detect such as dents at the head. The inspection areas for light and dark colors are also separated, allowing the inspection of a wide range of capsules, including two-color and dark-color capsules.
Combined-image print inspection
Images of the print on capsules are taken as the capsules face in random directions during transfer. The images are then combined and processed to detect print defects with high accuracy.
Dirt detection accuracy: 50 μm
Black spots as small as 50 μm can be detected.
High processing capacity
By making the simple flow-control unit into two lines, achieves a high processing capacity.
Single Line:
Size 5: Max. 125,000 capsules/hour
Size 4: Max. 117,500 capsules/hour
Size 3: Max. 110,000 capsules/hour
Size 2: Max. 100,000 capsules/hour
Size 1: Max. 92,500 capsules/hour
Size 0: Max. 85,000 capsules/hour
Note: May change depending on the condition of the capsule surface.
