Error-Proof Processes... Real-time 20/20 Visibility. Call 440.808.8888
When workers are new to the job, or become tired, distracted or confused, they can mistake parts that look alike when packing containers, thus causing serious problems for both customer and supplier.
For part validation and counting, SPEDE Vision can use Keyence infrared vision sensors. If your application also requires detecting color or color variations in parts, then visible light sensors can be used.
SPEDE vision solutions include these functions:
How a SPEDE Vision Sensor Solution works:
A Keyence vision sensor is "trained" to recognize a part number based on the unique characteristic of that part, using image capture and pixel analysis.
A SPEDE vision solution does not require a PLC to supply part number data. This means vision sensors can be used at Pack and Re-pack stations where no PLC is present, in addition to use at the production line if parts are packed there.
A touchscreen PC will display an image of the part being scanned as the part passes under the sensor via conveyor, or is presented by hand. If SPEDE determines the part is correct, it will increment the count towards the pack count. If not, it can optionally trigger the part to be diverted via conveyor and increment a scrap count increase. An audio/visual signal will alert the operator of the exception to prevent the packing of wrong or scrap parts.
