Infra-Red Backlight for bottle inspection

See through dark bottles with latest technology

Owens-Illinois produces glass containers for many of the world's leading food & beverage brands. The shape, color, opacity and design of the bottle varies significantly. To ensure the quality of their product, they design and manufacture vision systems that inspect every aspect of the bottles they produce and identify any production with cracks, chips and stresses in the glass and later determine the fill level.

When developing a new system to detect these defects in the manufacturing process, they chose ProPhotonix as their development partner due to our reputation for building compact, high intensity solutions. The result was two custom products, the first being a 740nm panel light and the second an 870nm panel light.
