AL-HABAIBEH, A., SHI, F., BROWN, N., KERR, D., JACKSON, M. and PARKIN, R.M., 2004. A novel approach for quality control system using sensor fusion of infrared and visual image processing for laser sealing of food containers.

This paper presents a new mechatronic approach of using infrared thermography combined with image processing for the quality control of a laser sealing process for food containers. The suggested approach uses an on-line infrared system to assess the heat distribution within the container seal in order to guarantee the integrity of the process. Visual image processing is then used for quality assurance to guarantee optimum sealing. The results described in this paper show examples of the capability of the condition monitoring system to detect faults in the sealing process. The results found indicate that the suggested approach could form an effective quality control and assurance system.
