Abstract:

CEPEDA's Shipboard Cardboard Preprocessing System utilizes modular sensing and stripping sections that ensure all tape and plastic labels are removed from the input cardboard. An innovative sensor has been conceived and tested on the bench top that can accurately distinguish tape and labels on cardboard from the bare cardboard. Testing has also demonstrated the ability to distinguish both tape and white labels on a white cardboard box. A process for stripping the tape or labels has been developed utilizing conventional tools that can remove all tape and labels with no residue while leaving the base cardboard intact for further handling. CEPEDA will build and deliver a modular prototype on Phase I that demonstrates the sensing and control system along with the stripping system. Several modules will be integrated together along with conveying and sizing equipment during Phase II in order to deliver a fully functional prototype meeting all requirements suitable for land-based testing.
