EBS Automation was commissioned to design and build an automated inspection machine to inspect assembled and packed synchro rings to ensure correct packaging.
The machine uses a cognex vision system to inspect two packages with three products in each.
The inspection criteria ensures that all bore sizes are correct in each package with the correct part numbers and all required elements of the component are present.
The operator will load the machine with two product packs, which locate to a stop position before the inspection takes place. Once the vision inspection is complete within a few seconds the machine will return the product to the operator. If the test has passed the operator will box the packages. If the vision inspect has failed then the package will be marked and the product pack will be allowed to exit through the base of the machine into a reject box. This will be emptied at the end of the shift. The inspection area of the machine is fully enclosed to ensure controlled lighting conditions whilst the vision inspection is taking place. To ensure good product definition special back lighting is used.
For ease of use there is an operator touch screen for part number selection, visual representation of the test results and program settings.
Once programmed and set the machine is maintenance free with exception of simple cleaning and pass / failure checks.
