Fill level and cap control
miho Newton Optics Pro

From 3rd July 2024 onwards, bottlers of disposable beverage containers in the EU must use closures known as tethered caps, which are “permanently and non-removably” attached to the container. There are a variety of different tethered cap designs: symmetrical, asymmetrical, with lasso, with hinge,…
The possible damage to the cap requires new ways of optical inspection: with up to 9 cameras, a variety of lighting options and its 360° view and unwinding algorithm, the miho Newton Optics Pro offers a flexible inspection kit for every type of cap on the bottle.
  • Closure: Checking the closure for exact fit (slanted fit / screw depth) and sleep caps. Check for damage to the safety ring on metal and plastic screw caps.
  • Non-roll-on check for metal screw caps with a circumferential defect of > 90°.
  • MHD, lot no. (on the side of the closure): Check for the presence of a BBD on the side of the closure. For this purpose, the MHD must be on the side facing the camera.
  • Presence of a nitrogen mist directly after the filler and capper.
  • Filling level: Check the filling level for under- and overfilling of transparent, cloudy/opaque, and foaming liquids, provided the fill level is not covered by a label. Illumination by direct light and/or transmitted light with optical method.
  • Up to eight images per bottle can be created and evaluated according to various criteria via the miho VIDIOS® image processing system.
  • Serial defect detection is implemented.
  • Not suitable for opaque containers and for bottles with labels in the fill height range.
