Connector Inspection

Connector Inspection

The Challenge:

A manufacturer of electrical connectors needed to guarantee the correct print and number of holes were present on each connector head. The connectors are manufactured in a semi automated process and they produce hundreds of different variants, with new ones being designed every week. Therefore new connector configurations/jobs need to be easily programmed into the system. When a defect is identified this needs to be relayed onto the operator (with a display identifying the fault) so they can remove it from the line to be re-worked.

Our Solution:

A turnkey solution was created whereby the operators presented the connector head to the vision system after it has been assembled for it to be checked that it is correct and that there are no defects. To help easily train the system for new connectors, a front end was created for the operator to easily load new jobs (by relocating and resizing a circle tool and then inputting the number of holes that should be present)
