EVT Hot Glue Inspector System


The EVT HotGlue Inspector System checks, if the adhesive points between cardboard surfaces of boxes are present and hot enough to glue the cardboard box together. With up to 60 boxes per second (which amounts to 3600 boxes per minute). Available camera resolutions are 291 x 120 and 640 x 480 Pixels. The Ready-to-use systems offer versatile solutions with only a small amount of adjustment and at the push of a few buttons in industries such as food, beverage, electronic as well as areas such as Deep Learning, Thermal Imaging, 2D, and also 3D image processing. The system includes an already preconfigured EyeVision Software solution for free adaption, as well as an EmSys computing hardware and an industrial camera of one of the supported makers such as Allied Vision Technologies, Basler, Baumer, Teledyne Dalsa, or also thermal imaging cameras by Optris or Flir. There are GigE and USB cameras available.

Inspects Adhesive Joints for Temperature

If the glue is missing at an adhesive joint or if the temperature of the glue is not hot enough, then this is detected automatically. Then the error can be matched to the respective gluing device and can be immediately repaired. The carton can also be rejected completely in case all the adhesive joints are missing or the temperature is too low.

Interface Protocol

The EVT Hot Glue Inspector System can communicate via the hardware interfaces with a tracker-system as well as with SCADA or a PLC. With the communication protocols such as Profinet, Modbus, TCP/IP & UDP the system can communicate with the machine.

Graphical Set-up of Inspection Points

The setup of the test facility is carried out completely graphically. The threshold for each adhesive joint can be either specified globally, for groups or for each adhesive joint separately. The integration of the system into a plant is supported by the embedded mode. This means that the system has a protocol implemented, which allows the setup as well as the operation from any desired remote system.

Multi-Camera Support

With the EVT Hot Glue Inspector System, several thermal imaging cameras can be used. To inspect all four sides of a container for example four cameras can be used.
