The new V6300 vision inspection system combines thorough product inspection with maximum production throughput and convenient installation. It is extremely flexible, adapting its physical structure, number of cameras and lights to meet the specific needs of each production line it is installed on.
CI-Vision's most affordable, most adaptable system to date, the V6300 provides a machine vision solution that supports up to five cameras and powerful software that can perform multiple inspections of a target package simultaneously-for ID/OD, ovality, gross formation defects, label positioning, label quality, closure application, fill level, 1D and 2D bar codes, graphical presence and quality, and the presence and verification of alphanumeric codes.
The V6300 quickly adapts to higher speeds and product changeovers to ensure that 100 percent of the products leaving a facility have been inspected for defects. The V6300 can be programmed to send automatic shutdown signals to the production line after a set number of consecutive or patterned failures, reducing the amount of wasted material.
It runs on CI-Vision's CIVCore Software, which analyzes high-resolution images at speeds of up to 1,000 parts per minute. The intuitive touchscreen menu enables rapid product changeovers-four touches of the screen accomplish the preprogrammed changes of lights and cameras to inspect new parts.
The V6300 is available in two configurations: a kit configuration, including the control terminal, lights, lenses, cameras and product tracking sensor suite, or the V6300 Rapid Fit, which includes the Rapid Fit frame system, allowing for quick installation around the production line.
