Machine Vision technology is being widely adopted in factories across the globe. The popularity of such industrial automation is being encouraged by favorable returns. These are noted in the boosts to efficiency, accuracy and productivity on the factory floor. For many decades, manual inspections have been carried out on production lines. The challenge is that the human brain gets distracted, gets tired and mistakes inevitably occur.
Machine Vision technology makes these issues a thing of the past. ARBOR Technology has developed highly reliable, low power systems to enable the swift, efficient and precise identification, and removal of faulty goods on a production line. What’s more, ARBOR’s machine vision technology can operate 24 hours a day. It remains focused on the job, irrespective of external factors and in turn enhances quality assurance to its highest level.
Machine Vision solutions enhance accuracy and productivity as well as human job satisfaction. Read our solution brief to find out how the role and implementation of Machine Vision is an increasingly important and lucrative aspect of Industry 4.0.
Vision systems offer consistent accuracy at high speeds, and for long periods of operation which decreases order lead times and faster shipping turnarounds.
Detecting a component’s measurement and misplacement produces higher quality products and ensures a higher level of customer satisfaction.
Defective parts are immediately removed from the process in the early production stages while scaling down the amount of labor needed to operate equipment.
The storage and bandwidth needed to handle vast amounts of data
Support TPM 2.0 security for data protection
GigE Vision/ USB 3.0 to support main stream IP cameras
Modularized expansion chassis allow for easy installation
Suitable thermal engineering for High-power draws
Support combinations of PCI and PCIe for frame-grabber cards
A Chinese smart phone manufacturer was relying on manual inspections, but the time it took their staff to spot and remove faulty products caused bottlenecks in the production line. They looked for an alternative solution and selected Arbor Technology’s FPC-9002-P6, a LAN connected, Machine Vision application.
The installation of the system, with software and camera integration, allowed for the swift removal of non-compliant phones, without causing a backlog. As the production process flowed without interruption, productivity at the factory increased.
With its four Power-over-Ethernet 802.3af compatible LAN ports, the ARES-1970-E was selected to control product quality in a CAN manufacturing factory. Smart cameras connected to the ARES-1970-E scan production lines and detect potential problems on glass bottles, caps, tags and packaging.
Thanks to its extensive I/O, compact size, and ability to communicate with external peripherals such as smart card readers, credit card readers and receipt printers, the ARES-1970 was also chosen for drug, food and beverage processing, tracing and testing equipment in China.
