Insert Detection

Insert Detection

The Challenge:

A moulded automotive housing travels down a conveyor at a linear speed of 10m/minute. Brass threaded inserts are pressed into the moulding at eight locations. Sometimes the inserts are incorrectly inserted or occasionally missing all together. The vision system needs to check that all inserts are present and correctly inserted into the part.

Our Solution:

A self-contained vision system locates the moulded part in 360 degrees of potential rotation on the conveyor. The inserts are then inspected as required. Any inserts/location that fails the inspection is relayed to operator in order for them to perform corrective action.

This helped improved the factory automation on site and reduced human operator errors.
