Cog Measurement

The Challenge:

Machined cogs travel down a conveyor at rates of up to 1 per second, the parts may be covered in bits of swarf and lubricant from the previous machining processes. Each cog needs to be checked to ensure it has the right number of holes, that they are the right size and defect free (no chips, or protruding edges). Various different sized cogs can travel down the same conveyor, so the vision system needs to be able to detect which part it is, and assign the tool checks accordingly.

Our Solution:

A self-contained turnkey vision system checks all the variants of the cogs to ensure the holes are the right size, shape, and pitch (in relation to the locations of the other holes). Any cogs that fail the inspection are rejected from the conveyor and the information is relayed on to operators for them to perform the corrective actions. This helped improved the factory automation on site and reduced human operator errors.
