Machine vision systems that assure perfect blank position in the mold are essential.

 

Main benefits:

 

  • Assuring a high quality product. Press only closes with blank in correct position.

 

  • Improves line availability and productivity.

 

  • Detection of broken centering pins.

 

  • Eliminates 100% of human visual control tasks.

 

 

Control tools:

 

  • Blank presence

 

  • Centering pins presence

 

  • Blank position

 

  • Double blank format

 

 

Technical Specifications:

 

  • Image acquisition with IR filters on high-sensitivity monochrome cameras.

 

  • Two cameras for each mold offer sufficient field of view while component positioning keeps press movement area clear and does not penalize press cycle time.

 

  • Not affected by changes of ambient lighting conditions.

 

  • IP67 protection class for all relevant components.

 

  • Protection housings against mechanical impact.

 

  • Fast and easy edition and creation of new recipes and references.

 

  • Automatic recipe selection by communication with the press PLC.

 

  • Addition of new controls, modifiable thresholds and tolerances.

 

  • Offline change-log for verification of changes and new configurations.
