Lipstick CT inspection

Style and fragrance is key in the cosmetics industry. CT inspection is run to ensure packaging standards are in line with the quality customers from products’ cosmetic content. Manufacturers use CT inspection to verify the tolerance between lipstick material and cover to avoid contact between both. Scans also highlight structural inconsistencies in the lipstick substance or burs or inclusions that might obstruct mechanical operation.

The same inspection technology can also be used to trace the slightest obstruction in the spraying mechanism of a hairspray can, for example, which may alter spraying power and angle. Shampoo bottles are inspected to determine surface thickness variation and trace air inclusions in the packaging material.
