Pull a Cracker

On the back of the recent flood recovery works undertaken for McVities in Carlisle we were asked to price for the installation of two camera systems for the cartoning machines on the Carr’s table water biscuit line.

The cameras were installed within the existing cartoning machines down stream of the printer that marks the “best before” date on the end flap of the box. The camera are connected into the cartoners PLC control system, which in turn is configured to look for blemishes within the “best before” date box on the end of the carton. If the “best before” date is missing on a single carton the machine will reject the carton when it reaches the machine outfeed.
