CAT300 crown caps inspection  system

Crown Caps inspection and sorting system

CAT300 is an inspection and sorting machine for crown caps. It uses the same functional units as the CVS3500 Decocap Colour inspection system, allowing defect control of cap batches at a maximum rate of 3000 pieces/minute. It inspects both the inside and the decorated outside and can be made ready for the installation of an ink-jet printer to print promotional codes inside the cap.
