Inline Tube Inspection

Product Description

Systems used for inspection of pharmaceutical and technical glass production. Designed and developed to meet high demands for speed and sensitivity.

JLI vision’s tube inspection systems in the SK-3000 series are compact stand alone units. The SK-3020, SK-4020 and SK-3020D are fourth generation and have been developed to meet high demands for speed and sensitivity. All systems can be used for technical and/or pharmaceutical glass production. 

They employ a number of high resolution line scan cameras and stabilized long life light sources.
By pneumatic pressure the illumination unit can lift up to provide free access at line start up. No tube handling is necessary. The tube runs unrestrained through the inspection module. The system can also be delivered as an off-line sampling unit. Tubes are inspected for stones, knots and airlines. Through a touch panel user-interface, the sensitivity can be set and defect patterns can be selected. When defects exceed a selected tolerance, a signal is timed and sent to the reject mechanism.
