Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2822235A1] A detection post includes an electromagnetic light source and a receiver for periodic scanning along a detection line so that any reflected light is detected. Illumination plane and scanning plane are effectively in the same common plane, which is inclined relative to the perpendicular to the conveyor belt plane (Pc). An Independent claim is included for an inspection method.

Abstract (fr)

La présente invention a pour objet un dispositif et un procédé d'inspection automatique par matière d'objets défilant en flux sensiblement monocouche. Ce dispositif comprend un poste (4) de détection à travers lequel passe le flux d'objets (2), ce poste de détection comportant : des moyens (6) d'application de rayonnements électromagnétiques en direction du plan de convoyage des objets (2) et définissant un plan d'éclairage, l'intersection des plans d'éclairage et de convoyage définissant une ligne de détection, un dispositif (8) de réception balayant périodiquement tout point de ladite ligne de détection et recevant les rayonnements réfléchis par une zone de mesure élémentaire, le plan défini par ladite ligne de détection et le centre optique d'entrée étant appelé plan de balayage, des moyens (10) de transmission desdits rayonnements réfléchis, machine caractérisée en ce que les rayonnements émis sont concentrés au voisinage du plan d'éclairage (Pe) et en ce que ledit plan d'éclairage (Pe) et le plan de balayage (Pb) sont confondus, ce plan commun (Pe, Pb) étant incliné par rapport à la perpendiculaire (D) au plan de convoyage (Pc). <IMAGE>
