Error-Proof Processes... Real-time 20/20 Visibility. Call 440.808.8888
The SPEDE vision solutions can use a variety of vision sensor and/or camera technologies for part validation, scrap detection, counting, and pack / re-pack control, depending upon the specific application requirements.
Keyence infrared vision sensors can be used for part validation and counting.
If your application requires detecting color or color variations in parts, then visible light sensors can be used.
Using Vision Sensors for Quality Control
Vision sensors eliminate human errors. When workers are new to a job, are tired, distracted or confused, they can mis-identify parts that look alike; mix defective parts with good parts; or mis-count parts when packing a container, causing serious problems for both customer and supplier.
The SPEDE vision solutions automate 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.
