Vision Inspection System
With production requirements taking up to 10 years to traditionally inspect, the addition of a vision system increased cycle time by 30% and allowed for higher production output.
A customer required an inspection of proprietary, cylindrical product that, at current production rates, could take over 10 years to inspect the currently needed production. Using machine vision to automate the inspection process, and Cognex cameras, AeroSpec created a rotational system that reduced cycle time and actually improved upon the customer’s requested throughput in an eight hour shift. After having been in production for years, no service calls were requested and the system remains in production today.
