Selected Packaging Case Studies

Fully Integrated Canister Packaging Inspection

Dent inspection on pressurized canisters was needed on an existing production line by the food & beverage client. Dents could prevent product from dispensing or cause cans to explode under pressure. EPIC designed, built, and integrated a 360° high speed inspection that identified dents by eliminating can graphics with proper lighting and rejected defective cans downstream. Read complete case study
