Optics for caps inspection and measurement
Pericentric lenses are an exclusive product developed by Opto Engineering® to enable the 360° view of objects without the aid of mirrors, with just one camera. Parts up to 60 mm in diameter can be inspected.
Catadioptric PCCD lenses are compact pericentric lenses exclusively developed and produced by Opto Engineering® to enable the 360° side view imaging of small objects. Parts as small as 7.5 mm can be inspected.
PCHI optics have been developed by Opto Engineering® to enable the 360° inside view of holed objects, cavities and containers from 10 to 70 mm with very good resolution and excellent depth of focus.
TC series is a family of bi-telecentric lenses compatible with matrix and large detectors. TC optics are the key component of any accurate measurement system based on machine vision technologies.
Examples of applications
Big cap inspection
For caps with a diameter range from 20 to 60 mm. The PC pericentric lens enables the capture of both the side and top views of the cap with only one camera shot. The inspection of both top and side views avoids the use of multiple cameras placed around the cap.
Small cap inspection
For caps with a diameter range from 7 to 25 mm. With its wide lateral viewing angle, the PCCD catadioptric lens enables the capture of both the side and top views of the cap with only one camera shot. Its compact structure makes it easy to integrate in inspection lines. It is also suitable for the thread inspection on a bottleneck.
Internal walls and bottom inspection
For cavities with diameters from 10 to 70 mm The PCHI hole inspection lens performs cavity inspection from the outside. With a very high field depth and perfect focusing, it makes an ideal lens for inspecting a bottle cap or threads of a transparent bottleneck.
Measurement and positioning
Opto Engineering® Bi-Telecentric lenses are ideal for measuring applications. They can be used in many different dimensional applications on caps, including verification on the correct positioning or correct closure of caps.
