Machine Vision Systems

Machine Vision Integration Systems

Machine vision systems have become vital in the manufacturing industry. But many people wonder, “What is a Machine Vision System?”

Increased quality control demands of consumers, manufacturers, and government regulations make the need for machine vision technology imperative.

Machine Vision Systems leverages technology and experience to provide automated image-based (camera) inspection and analysis for applications such as gauging, reading text, process control, and robot guidance.

Machine vision is also known as “industrial vision” or “vision systems.” The machine vision system can consist of a number of cameras, sometimes mounted over assembly lines to inspect products, capture data, read labels, direct product, and more, all without human intervention.

There are four basic machine vision applications: inspection, gauging, guidance, and identification.

  • Foreign material and glass shard optical detection
    system with masked jar bottom molded features to
    eliminate false rejects
  • Automatic camera and image formation adjustments via
    linear servos for various part configurations via a single
    user interface
  • The camera positions as well as the trigger sensors are servo controlled to deal with differing diameters.

    implemented
  • Custom stainless steel structure and backlit conveyor solution for installation into an existing production
    line or a new production line
  • The system took two days to install and one day to test vision
  • The system was fully qualified and operational within 4 days

Round Disk Inspection

This round disk surface inspection is an ideal vision system for 360 part inspection. This is a small machine with big results. This vision solution was custom designed to reduce the takt time required for part inspection. Each part is presented to a rotary stand by use of a 2 axis robot. Once placed onto the rotary stand, each transmissional seal is inspected 360 degrees in 3D form and can be utilized to inspect for an array of items including manufacturing defects and part specific registration marking.

  • 3D measurement with accuracy of 0.004mm
  • 100% full part handling
  • Full part inspection
  • High-speed and compact

Cylindrical Bushing Internal Coating Verification and Dimensional Analysis System

This high speed, (300ppm) backlit, singulation, material handling, rejection tracking and verification system was designed for bulk feeding and orientation of 50 different sized part numbers with three (3) machine vision sensors.

  • Parts vary in height, diameter, flange size, and coating type and color
  • Automatic system adjustment via linear servos, VFD, and camera inspection programs
  • HMI allows for operator to select pre-programmed recipe for part features and/or create new product recipe for inspections
  • Part change over takes less than 30 seconds from inspection configuration manager
  • Two (2) inspection bins for various defect mode separation/sorting downstream of the three inspection points
  • Includes modified virtual motion axis tracking system and provides statistical data collection
  • Learn more

 

3D Micrometer Inspection

Using a 2.2 micrometer-sensitive 3D laser mounted to a 3-axis robot, several high-definition images are acquired and combined to generate a 3D point cloud.

This 1GB image is generated using key corner points to overlay 3D data from scan-to-scan.  Inspection consists evaluating 20,000 individual pin locations across each of 8 pin grid groups. Each pin is less than 100 square micrometers in size, and only 360 micrometers tall.  In addition to planarity, the inspection checks for x-y location, rotation, and pin deviation to within 10 micrometers. This entire process occurs in 90 seconds.

Copper Fitting Inspection

This customizable inspection machine offers full verification of part geometry and validation of O-ring placement and seating. Press-fit copper fittings are growing in market share for their ease of  installation.

From residential to industrial, these fittings are becoming common-place and offer peace of mind upon proper installation with lifetime guarantees.

Our inspection cell ensures that each part matches the configuration specified by the operator as well as ensuring that each press-fit O-ring has been properly placed inside of the press-fit bead.

  • 100% full part handling
  • Full part inspection
  • High-accuracy and customizable to client needs
  • On-site and remote support

Tire Guardian

The Tire Guardian allows the automotive industry to use the most reliable and cost effective inspection methods to adhere to DOT regulations, while improving the quality of the overall tire assembly.

The Tire Guardian is a combination of two different machine vision applications that can be used individually or in sequence to assure tire assembly quality from the most common non-compliance issues.

The first machine vision application is the DOT & Bead Seam Reader, which recognizes (OCR), verifies (OCV) & documents all DOT information located on the sidewall of the tire.  Within 15 seconds, the profile sensor projects a laser light across the surface of an automobile tire profile from the bead toward the tread.  When the profile sensor is applied to the bead area of a rotating tire the sensor digitizes the circumferential band that contains the DOT Code, Mold Code, E-Mark Code, or other molded-in features.
