How it works:

From the spiral conveyor caps are moving onto the MRW camera conveyor belt where they are scanned by the MRW line scan camera and an additional color sensor from above. Separation, orientation, color and minimum distances are ensured.

Wrong orientated caps, wrong color, too close successive caps and caps that actually cannot be processed (all chambers full) are blown back into the bowl feeder.

At the end of the belt the caps move into the customers machine.

Always the correct type of part, always in correct orientation...
