Universal Empties Management with Image Processing Technologies
SYSTEM FEATURES
Universal Empties Management System BBULL LG IMAGE
BBULL LG IMAGE
   sensor bridge with universal ultrasonic line without shifts in
     case of format changes
   conversion of US height information into gray scale values for
     evaluation by image-processing technology
   camera unit for inspection of bottles, gaps, and crates
   additional inputs to extend system application (logo recognition,
     grip holder inspection)
   associations formed between US and camera images enabling
     evaluation via detection software, BBULL IMAGE
   scalable hardware and software components for different types
     of tasks
   unlimited memory to store different formats and crate types
   database module for batch-related evaluation
   remote control and remote maintenance module
   user management (via transponder reading device)
RANGE OF APPLICATIONS
   inspection of decrating capability for linear and offset crate cells
   bottle sorting based on:
      bottle height
      bottle colour
      cap type (swing-top bottles)
      neck ring
   crate sorting based on:
      crate format
      crate colour
      crate logo
      case type
   for areas of application with a wide variety of types
   recommended for sorting and logistic centres
   to handle batch evaluation and calculation of deposit amounts

SYSTEM DESIGN
Sensor bridge:
   universal ultrasonic line with 16 individual sensors
   CCD-colour camera
   high-performance light module
   overheight protection
Thanks to the application of the universal ultrasonic
line there is no need for any adjustment of the sensors
to accommodate different crate formats and positions
of bottles. BBULL LG IMAGE is therefore optimally equipped for integration into sorting systems where a huge variety of crate formats (all mixed up) have to be checked. Activation of the respective sensor information
is handled by the software, so the operator does not
need to intervene. This reduces set-up times and
secures that errors due to incorrect operation are
largely avoided.
The high-performance light modules are installed above the transport system and are protected against dirt
and damage.
BBULL LG IMAGE can be installed above all established crate transport systems. It is most important that the crate transport is performed smooth by and that there
are no reflections from the transport system.

SOFTWARE
An outstanding component of the BBULL LG IMAGE Empties Management System is the application „BBULL IMAGE“, a universal image-processing software.
Each individual sensor/camera supplies raw data to the processing software.
Height information provided by the US sensors is converted into gray values enabling the image-processing software
to generate a three-dimensional image of the container being examined. By applying a scalable evaluation algorithm, which checks absolute or relatively opposing characteristics, an evaluation about the content and
crate is produced. In the process, connections and associations among different characteristics can be
set to produce an extremely high degree of recognition reliability, even
under variable conditions (e.g. in a sorting centre).
The software includes an extensive database function, which ensures the back-up and recognition of very
different crate types.
Optionally a batch-related evaluation module can be integrated enabling not only to supervise each received delivery of empties separately, but also to evaluate the container deposit accordingly. BBULL LG IMAGE achieves levels of transparency regarding your empties
and your distributors that would otherwise only be possible under considerable manual effort. Significant savings in time and personnel are able to be realized.
YOUR BENEFIT
   transparency regarding empties-quality and
     distributors
   transparency regarding condition of the system and
     user intervention
   minimal effort required when changing format, thus avoiding
     operating errors
   quick set-up times
   suitable for a wide variety of crates and crate cells
   no limitation in detection options when crate cells are offset
   excellent reliability by relating different inspection features
     to each other
   economy of time and personnel when recording returned empties
   „unlimited“ data memory for a wide variety of containers
    remote operation and remote maintenance software
