Conveying Reject Fluorescent Tube Caps

A fluorescent lamp manufacturer inserts adhesive paste into metal end caps before they are attached to glass bulbs. The end caps are visually inspected on a multilane continuous belt conveyor. Two inspectors are required to identify defective end caps, pick them up and place into a waste container. One inspector could not safely reach across the lanes of the conveyor. A Model 6083 1-1/2" (38mm) Line Vac was installed to reach the far lanes and capture defective end caps. This resulted in less inspection staff.
