Kit Inspection Machine

A company was having issues getting the height, lip thickness, and diameter within spec at all times on their paper cups, so they came to Cincinnati Automation to build them a machine to solve the problem.

The machine Cincinnati Automation built to solve these challenges is a small, hand loaded table top unit with a touch screen HMI, HD display, and touch button trigger. There is one camera, a Keyence controller, and back lighting. An operator loads a stack of cups into the machine and rests them on the inspection surface where the cups are then counted and inspected. A good/no-good signal is then given along with the dimensional data read-out.
