Abstract
(EN)
A glass vial illumination and inspection system may be provided with a light source and a stand. The stand may have an internal cavity configured to receive at least a portion of the light source. A recess may be located in the stand and configured to receive at least a portion of a glass vial. The stand may be configured to aim the light output from the light source toward the glass vial to illuminate the vial. The stand may be configured to position the vial such that an inspector can manually inspect the illuminated vial for defects. Methods of use are also disclosed.

La présente invention concerne un système d'éclairage et d'inspection de flacon en verre qui peut être pourvu d'une source de lumière et d'un support. Le support peut avoir une cavité interne conçue pour recevoir au moins une portion de la source de lumière. Un évidement peut être situé dans le support et conçu pour recevoir au moins une portion d'un flacon en verre. Le support peut être conçu pour diriger la sortie de lumière de la source de lumière vers le flacon en verre pour éclairer le flacon. Le support peut être conçu pour positionner le flacon, de sorte qu'un inspecteur puisse inspecter manuellement le flacon éclairé en quête de défauts. L'invention concerne également des procédés d'utilisation.
