The decrement counter shows the number of cans between the welding station and first light barrier of the eject station. If the value is wrong, the ejection of cans is out of sync with the faulty products.

The reason for a wrong decrement counter can be a reset during production. Reset the decrement counter only if the production is stopped and no cans are between the welding station and eject station! Never during production!

This is important to avoid that bad cans go to the downline.

Possible cause:

  • Check if the voltage pick – up “tongues” are worn.
  • Check if there’s enough “contact pressure” of those tongues
  • If they are bent; change them, do not attempt to bend them yourself, they might break!

 

Cause may be a short. Make sure that the bracket of the IR-sensor is complete isolated. No bolts etc. should touch the rocker arm or other parts.
