Orientation Inspection

Technology

Orientation is required on containers for label application, key (meat) application, proper inkjet printing and numerous other applications. The orientator is required to identify a specific characteristic of a container and sort them or organize them or reposition them. We employ digital vision to identify the required characteristics and custom mechanisms and conveyors to perform the required action.
