Molded Part Inspection and Material Handling System
This machine is a variance on the standard seal inspection machine. It is smaller and it includes direct material handling. First, it receives full lots of molded seals destined for aerosol cans at the base of the incline conveyor. Then, the conveyor begins the material handling process and transfers the parts into the feeder bowl. From there, the feeder bowl aligns the parts and delivers them onto the inspection belt which enters the inspection machine. The inspection consists of side and top cameras searching for flash, pitting, and other defects and also does a quick gage of part sizing. From there the parts are ejected into pass and fail containers.
