Many motion based applications have a vision component to them as well as the electronic controllers and the mechanical components. These three elements of an application represent the bulk of the engineering in any machine design. This webinar will discuss the challenges each element brings. Typical applications of these combined elements will be represented. It is the aim of the webinar to demonstrate three distinct applications where these elements converge on simple and complicated machinery.
This webinar covered:
1. Motion, Inspection, & Rejection
Inspecting bottle caps, bottle fill levels, and bottle labels is a common vision and simple motion application. Commonly bottlers will switch products or a bottle size which then requires some level of machine change over. See a simple, cost saving, solution to automating the vision inspection changeover.
2. Inspection in Motion
Lab Automation frequently requires very precise measurements of processes over a long period of time. See how a typical application uses motion electronics, the critical needs of the mechanical components, and how vision becomes a critical element of this. Also see how this same concept can translate into a larger scale, not so clean, industrial setting.
3. Inspect Orient and Move
Most people are familiar with Pick N Place packaging applications that use cameras and robots. However, many may not be as familiar with using linear guides and a vision system for automated storage and retrieval of products from DVD’s at the grocery store, to medicine bottles in pharmaceutical applications, to automated warehousing systems. In this section, the electrical and mechanical elements of how this is accomplished will be covered.
