Krones Linatronic AI bottle inspector

Empty bottle inspectors often will show false readings when water droplets or foam remain on the bottle after cleaning. This leads to perfectly usable bottles being classified as having defects resulting in them being discarded.

Krones Linatronic AI technology employs deep learning software to detect and classify anomalies automatically with a reliability rate of more than 99.9%.

Deep learning is a technology that enables machines to do what we humans do naturally: learn from example. But a machine can use this ability many times more efficiently than humans can.

The foundation for deep learning is an artificial neural network (ANN), which can be described as a complex system of multiple consecutive filters.

The images captured during the inspection process are fed through these filter layers, one after the other. Each layer extracts a different characteristic of the image.

The Linatronic AI’s neural network comes fully trained. It is continually fine-tuned using thousands of example images until it can accurately distinguish water droplets from other anomalies. As a result, waste of material due to false rejects is no longer an issue.
