Roll Thru Label Inspection

Technology

The RTLI brings an innovative approach to label inspection. The RTLI is designed to smoothly integrate into a line immediately after a roll through labeler. As the can rolls through the inspection area, it is tested for the presence of a label (shiner), improper glue application (flapper) and loose labels. Bar code verification is available through optional add-on module. The bar code module insures that the correct label is applied to the can.

This machine can also be complimented by a Variety Code inspection system (Can Code OCV) that verifies the inkjet printer code on the end of the can and matches it to data read by the barcode reader. Using both the barcode reader and the Can Code OCV verifies that the label matches the product in the can, virtually eliminating the possibility of incorrect labels being applied. If defects exist, the can is ejected from the line by one of two methods. First method is two eject after it is stood up after a can twist and the second is by an integrated progressing door eject system.
