Full Body Inspection

Ensure full body inspection of canned food

This technology can detect body dent, side defect, swollen, seam defect, and foreign material within the same system.



This innovative solution combines multiple inspection stations to ensure total quality control of canned food.

Seam inspection: The Lizotte Can Grader has been installed in many countries worldwide, to check the double-overlap closure seam on various can sizes and shapes. The grader acquires a perimeter view of the seam by using six synchronized cameras and a creatively designed lighting chamber.

In the images, our specialized software finds the top and underside of the seam, and evaluates the seam for overall straightness, for width, and for variations in height, any of which could indicate a defect.

Inspection of swollen cans: The full body inspection system can detect swollen cans from the top using a laser technology to determine any height variation.

Side dent detection: The system uses a combination of four side-view cameras to precisely detect side dent on the body of the can. Those dents are identified by inspecting for any irregularities on the side of the can.

Top view inspection: The top view station can detect multiple color defect on the top of the can such as juice, rust, and spills.

Inspection for Foreign Materials: It uses non-destructive x-ray to inspect tin cans of various sizes and shapes for internal foreign materials.

Lizotte specializes in custom-built equipment. Hence, we would be pleased to supply a personalized system that would fulfill your operational requirements.
