Abstract
(DE)
Bei einer Inspektionsmaschine für Gefäße mit einem Zuförderer, einem Abförderer, einem dazwischen angeordneten, die Gefäße ohne Eigendrehung überführenden Zwischenförderer sowie mit einem die Gefäße in Eigenrotation versetzenden Drehförderer am Zuförderer ist eine erste Seiteninspektionsvorrichtung am Zuförderer vor dem Drehförderer, eine zweite Seiteninspektionsvorrichtung am Abförderer nach dem Zwischenförderer und eine Bodeninspektionsvorrichtung im Bereich der Lücke zwischen Zuförderer und Abförderer angeordnet. Dadurch wird eine hohe Leistungsfähigkeit des Gefäßtransports und eine große Inspektionsgenauigkeit erzielt.
(EN)
The invention concerns an inspection machine for containers with a supply conveyor and a removal conveyor, an intermediate conveyor arranged between them to convey the containers across without them turning, as well as a rotation conveyor on the supply conveyor causing the containers to rotate. A first side inspection device is located on the supply conveyor prior to the rotation conveyor, a second side inspection device is located on the removal conveyor following the intermediate conveyor and a bottom inspection device is located in the area of the gap between the supply conveyor and the removal conveyor. This leads to high efficiency in container transport and a high degree of inspection accuracy.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une machine permettant de vérifier l'état de contenants, qui comprend un convoyeur qui amène les contenants, un convoyeur qui les évacue et un convoyeur intermédiaire placé entre, qui transfère les contenants sans qu'ils soient en autorotation, ainsi qu'un convoyeur rotatif, sur le convoyeur d'amenée, qui place les contenants en autorotation. Un premier dispositif d'inspection latérale est disposé sur le convoyeur qui amène les contenants, en amont du convoyeur rotatif. Un second dispositif d'inspection latérale est disposé sur le convoyeur qui évacue les contenants, en aval du convoyeur intermédiaire. Un dispositif d'inspection du fond des contenants est placé dans la zone interstitielle située entre le convoyeur d'amenée et le convoyeur d'évacuation des contenants. Cette machine permet de parvenir à un rendement élevé du transport de contenants et à des opérations d'inspection d'une grande précision.
