Machine vision solution for the wine industry for the inspection and integral and qualitative control of cork barks. This material is then used for the production of cava bottle caps.
In any industrial sector, it is as important to achieve a quality consumer product as it is to guarantee its integrity, safety and optimum final presentation to the customer.
In the case of cava, the cork is one of the most important elements when it comes to ensuring its bottling, it is in charge of eliminating losses, as well as collaborating in its conservation process. This means that the element must have a homogeneous and compact integrity. For this purpose, an inspection is stipulated that implicitly involves an machine vision system that analyzes the construction of the material as a whole. The solution adopted is based on a system of triangulation and 3D colour reconstruction capable of obtaining the dimensions along the planes corresponding to each of the axes.
Inspection of cork barks. Caps for the wine industry.
Subsequently, and by means of the inspected material the corks are generated that fulfill the physical-mechanical requirements stipulated, nevertheless, the system goes beyond and counts on an extension for the inspection of the coloration.
In this case the system has a process of inspection of the pigmentation on the surface of the cork, a fact that allows the selection to be made in order to obtain the desired quality of the finished product.
In short, the system is capable of inspecting up to 25,000 pieces per hour, classifying them according to their construction and homogeneity in colouring, in accordance with the established specifications.
