Protecting Manufacturers Against Recalls - Seal Verification For Infant Formula Containers

Mettler
Inspecting for presence of the pull tab ensures every package has been sealed properly. This camera setup also includes additional inspections relevant to the package and labeling (not shown in picture).

In the nutraceutical manufacturing environment, product contamination can lead to product recalls and devastating consumer harm. Without proper quality assurance, a manufacturer's bottom line could be drastically affected by defective product reaching and potentially harming an infant consumer.

In order to prevent these threats, a major nutraceutical manufacturer proactively implemented a vision inspection program into their formula lines to ensure a safe and quality nutrient product for infant consumers. As a strict industry standard, quality assurance programs must be put into place, however manual inspection was creating a bigger range of tolerances than product specifications. The manufacturer required the most accurate inspection solution possible – to detect the smallest of defects in the container's foil seals, that could lead to dangerous contamination and product spoilage.

Knowing their inspection needs and product specifications, CI-Vision was able to develop precise product tolerances with progressive technology that was able to capture defects, while pattern-matching algorithms would detect and reliably reject defective products from the production line.
