Bottle Assembly Inspection System

Prevent Packaging and Product Waste During Assembly and Filling

Ensure correct formation and assembly of bottles, caps, and molded plastic features. After filling, prevent leakage and product waste by making sure caps and spray triggers are properly assembled. Mis-oriented or assembled parts can be recycled back into the line by operators.

Using EPIC’s proprietary software, our inspection system can ensure caps and other assembled parts are correctly formed and oriented before entering the filler at 99% accuracy or higher. Our system delivers reliable inspection results while avoiding unnecessary line stoppage with automatic rejection and complete integration into existing line controls.

  • Suitable for

    Assembled plastic bottles and consumer sized containers

  • Line Speeds

    Up to 600 parts-per-minute with standard configuration. 900–1,000 parts per minute achievable with some upgrades

  • System Highlights

    Eliminate assembly errors and associated filling & leakage issues for bottles and assembled containers by inspecting for:

    • Proper part orientation before assembly
    • Correct opening dimensions for proper cap fit
    • Thread presence

    • Other correct assembly of parts (mating)

    System is 99.9+% accuracy with a maximum of 1 false fails/false pass in 1,000 products

  • Optional Upgrades

    • Can be combined with the other inspections for complete bottle inspection package
    • Height adjustments for multiple sized bottles on the same line
    • Higher or lower part rates
    • Food grade (wash down rated)
