360° Orbital

CAPA 360 Orbital Inspection

CAPA 360 is a 360° inspection system used for the inspection and reading of 2D and helper codes on pharmaceutical, reclosable plastic bottles. The orbital inspection enables thanks to
Thanks to the 360° reading range, the orbital inspection system enables all-round quality assurance of the arbitrarily shaped object as well as a printing, serialisation and aggregation function for the printed codes.

CAPA 360 is used in the packaging process and is the solution for the use of auxiliary codes in the course of aggregation. The printing of the auxiliary codes and their reading and linking with the serial number on the bottle label are the prerequisites for the aggregation of the products in the fully automatic case packer.

Hardware of the orbital station


With the use of the high-resolution 6x camera system, the CAPA 360 can realise a 360° reading range, whereby an object can be inspected from every side without having to be aligned.

Six state-of-the-art cameras with a resolution of 5 megapixels and integrated SMD-W LED illumination are used.



The illumination used in the CAPA 360 all-round inspection system is integrated as a reflected light unit in the camera housing.
camera housing and is adjustable in 16 brightness levels. The illumination set for a format is stored in the format data record and is therefore reproducible. The use of UV illumination is possible for the inspection and reading of helper codes.
