Risk Reduction

The IS610 prevents downtime and the costs associated with the contamination in the weld margin. Lacquer and other contaminants in the margin may also cause can leakage later due to bad quality welding of the can cylinder.

Detects Contamination in the Margin

Apart from lacquer, the sensor is also capable of detecting patches of rust, water marks, and oil/ grease compounds present in the margin that could result in quality issues.


The Plain Margin Inspector has a built-in algorithm to self-adjust the levels and calibrate the operating parameters on the first few sheets that it sees after a programmable period of inactivity.

Clear Lacquer and Varnishes

Detecting clear lacquer on metal sheets at line speed is particularly challenging. The highly capable IS610 Plain Margin Inspector has been especially developed to meet this requirement, while still performing perfectly on all coloured coatings and varnishes.
