Vision systems reduce costs, increase performance and productivity in a variety of industrial and non-industrial systems.
Automated systems reduce costs, increase performance, productivity and ensures quality. In many applications a vital component of an automated process is the vision system, which interprets real-time images. Using pre-defined criteria, an integrated vision system makes a judgement or series of judgements and then performs a specific task or set of tasks.
Manufacturing machines are operated through the interaction of sensors, PLC’s, servomotors, and other devices. Vision Systems check orientation and part position; the results are used to control the operation of Machines.
Inspections Systems inspect the product in order to determine how to handle it, verifying for damage and orientation, and ensuring the quality of the product going in and leaving the machine.
The EtherCAT is a high-speed open network that is ideal for machine control. You can use the EtherCat to connect to NJ-Series Machine Automation Controllers and motion control G5-series Servomotors and Servo Drives to increase control speed over everyday communications protocols from workpiece detection to starting axis motion.
Common tasks performed by vision systems include:
The high speed processing capability of a vision system, within an automated process, ensures high-level, repeatable results 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. High speed image input contributes to increasing throughput.
The characteristics of a high-end vision system include complex image processing algorithms and real time, continuous data acquisition and analysis. The high resolution and sensitivity of high end vision systems make them a real world solution to manufacturing optimisation.
Benefits of vision systems
From a production point of view there are 3 benefits of using high-end vision systems as part of an automated process:
Better quality control – Defect free products avoid product or lot returns, reduce overheads and increase brand image by identifying errors during the production process
Faster production line – reduces manufacturing costs and production times leading to greater production and increased profits
Fewer injuries – reduced repetitive or dangerous tasks lead to reduced work related injuries
From a corporate point of view, there are two key benefits in using a high end vision system:
Greater profits – increased quality control, reduced manufacturing and production times, all result in a higher return on investment (ROI)
Higher employee satisfaction – less injuries and boring repetitive or dangerous tasks improves employee retention and satisfaction
