Centrifugal Feeding System with Vision Inspection

Written by:

RNA designed and built a centrifugal feeding systems to feed and orientate filled capsules. The task required capsules to be orientated with major diameter leading and discharged end to end all one way at a speed of 300 parts per minute. Due to the nature of the products, it was impossible to mechanically checked the orientation of the capsules. Therefore, a vision system was applied to meet the requirements of this application perfectly.

vision inspection-capsule orientationThe filled capsules are stored and transferred by bulk feeder on demand to a centrifugal feeder, then discharged from the feeder to the conveyor out-feed. An orientation station (camera station) is fitted with the conveyor out-feed to check capsules orientation. Correctly orientated capsules will pass through the station and continue along the conveyor out-feed; Incorrectly orientated capsules will be detected and recycled back into the bulk feeder via a vacuum air system.
