  • Patent number: 6473169
    Abstract: An integrated leak and vision inspection system is provided that accurately and efficiently inspects a bottle or other container for manufacturing defects. The system provides a series of visual inspection stations with cameras and lighting that are integrated onto a rotary inspection system for on-line inspection of containers. A microprocessor in data communication with each of the inspection stations receives and analyzes image data of the particular area or parameter of the container being inspected or tested, and generates data relating to the container based upon predetermined criteria. The stations are arranged to provide an integrated and fully automated and efficient inspection system. In the preferred embodiment, the system is structured with a first station integrated with an entry starwheel to inspect the top seal surface of the container.

  • Patent number: 4143648
    Abstract: A portable therapeutic instrument includes a microphone to be secured to a patient's throat for monitoring voice level or to a patient's nose for monitoring nasal sounds. An input amplifier includes an automatic gain circuit which essentially flattens the gain curve. An adjustable level detector includes a solid state level detector to generate a square wave signal connected to a logic switching circuit for turning a tone oscillator or other stimulus unit wholly on or off. A second similar channel connected to the input amplifier detects total voiced speech. A switch means connects the oscillator to only the first channel to detect speech above a selected level or to both channels to detect speech only below a selected level. The several channels include time delay circuits permitting normal speech attack and decay. The microphone may also be connected to the patient's nose to monitor nasal sounds.
