Dymond M - X-ray inspection system
Dymond M - X-ray inspection system

With the DYmond M inspection system, Dylog has provided an optimal solution to inspect glass jars and bottles, improving performance in product areas that are traditionally more problematic, such as the bottom and below the cap.

The DYmond M inspection system has three pointsof view, i.e. 3 tubes (powered by 3 generators) and 3 detectors, arranged as shown in the figure.

  • TUBE N. 1: for inspecting the BOTTOM
  • TUBE N. 2: aligned with the filling level and for inspecting the area below the cap
  • TUBE N. 3: for inspecting the BOTTOM

This layout has the same benefits as the system with 2 points of view aligned at the bottom (DYmond D) as regards detecting contaminants that appear on the image in dark areas corresponding to the part of the jar/bottle, and the detection of large, but thin contaminants.

The images acquired with 3 points of view appear as follows (with a view to optimising performance in the area of the bottom and the cap).




Contaminant hidden by jar shadows

The area below the cap is free from cap projections and the jar profile, which appear in views 1 and 2 and which are filtered

The same contaminant that did not appear in view no.1 is now easily visible. It is “moved” from the dark area generated by the dark projection of the rounded bottom to a clearer/more uniform area

To optimise the detection of contaminants that are located in the dark areas of images next to edges, Dylog has patented a configuration of 3 X-ray tubes on axes that are not parallel, but inclined at 5°, as shown in the figure.

In this way, a contaminant that is very close to the edge is “moved” to a clearer area of the image in view no. 3.
Another factor that makes the detection of contaminants optimal is the angle of the rays compared to the convexity of the bottom.

In systems usually available on the market, the ray that corresponds to views 1 and 3 of the DYmond M is tangent to this convexity.

Instead, the solution adopted by Dylog has a greater angle (45°) to make the distance between the bottom area and cap area as big as possible, avoiding overlapping that would cause confusion when detecting contaminants.

The tubes are aligned with a manual device for views 1 and 3 and with an electronic cylinder for view no. 2. In this way, tube no. 2 can be aligned as closely as possible with the filling level.

This device is operated directly via the software interface, with graphics and functions that have been entirely redesigned.
