Boxed Chocolates Inspection

This fast and accurate vision application checks that the correct pattern of colours is within a box of chocolates.

A single Cognex DVT 554C sensor is used to check the correct pattern of colours within the box.  The powerful DVT colour tools allow fast and accurate recognition of the colours within the image and check against the pattern of colours required.

Problems that can be detected by the system:

  • Incorrect chocolates included in packaging
  • Missing chocolates
  • Incorrectly coloured chocolates

Features of the system:

  • High performance In-Sight DVT sensors
  • Basic integral white ring light
  • Virtually maintenance-free system
  • Simple HMI showing chocolates to allow reject images to be displayed
  • Simple interface to line PLC allowing rejects to be tracked through to reject stations
