Vision System

The Vision System checks the orientation and quality of a product. It inspects the product for damage and determines how to handle it. A dedicated feeding system that automatically spaces the bottles can be added as an option.

KEY FEATURES OF THE VISION SYSTEM:

  • 5” touch screen for operation and production information
  • 20” Display and roller track ball for camera system control and setup
  • Light tower for status indication
  • Eject bottles using air blast
  • PLC Controlled 
  • Independent floor mounted frame for stability
  • Central control via HMI
  • System safety interlocked and guarded as per Australian and New Zealand Standards

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The high speed processing capability of a vision system, within an automated process, ensures high-level, repeatable results 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. High speed image input contributes to increasing throughput.

The characteristics of a high-end vision system include complex image processing algorithms and real-time, continuous data acquisition and analysis. The high resolution and sensitivity of high-end vision systems make them a real-world solution to manufacturing optimisation.

Common tasks performed by vision systems include:

  • Identification of flaws in manufactured items
  • Precise and accurate measurement of items
  • Location, recognition, sorting and counting of items
  • Correct positioning of items

From a production point of view there are 3 benefits of using high-end vision systems as part of an automated process:

  • Better quality control – defect-free products avoid product or lot returns, reduce overheads and increase brand image by identifying errors during the production process
  • Faster production line – reduces manufacturing costs and production times leading to greater productivity and increased profits
  • Fewer injuries – reduced repetitive or dangerous tasks lead to reduced work-related injuries

From a corporate point of view, there are two key benefits in using a high-end vision system:

  • Greater profits – increased quality control, reduced manufacturing and production times, all result in a higher return on investment (ROI)
  • Higher employee satisfaction – fewer injuries and boring repetitive or dangerous tasks improve employee retention and satisfaction

APPLICATIONS FOR THE VISION SYSTEM

The integration of high-end vision system can increase productivity or efficiency within the following industries:

STAND-ALONE MACHINE

As a stand-alone EOM machine, the vision system can be built to suit an existing manufacturing system. 

 

TURNKEY SYSTEM

As part of a turnkey system, the vision system is a fully automated system where it can be built-in the following system to create a sophisticated machine:

 

DESIGN AND BUILD PERIOD

As a stand-alone machine or EOM product, it may take around 25-weeks from purchase order to delivery. On the other hand, a custom-made turnkey system can take longer depending on the customer's requests and specifications. 

 

SERVICE MAINTENANCE

Service maintenance is any work necessary to keep all customer facilities in good repair and operating condition. It includes maintaining and repairing essential components of a machine. This excludes explicitly new work and alterations such as:

  • manufacturing and modifying machines and complete lines
  • providing decorative treatments
  • modifying vision systems
  • attaching or extending items to the machine.


WARRANTY
