Is the object present? How is it lying on the belt? Is a detail missing or has it been incorrectly assembled? These and many other applications can be reliably automated with sensors from SensoPart.
One sensor for multiple inspections: The VISOR® Object vision sensor in the color version combines color and object detection in a single device: He can therefore, for example, check the presence of a lid and at the same time check the correct color of the lid.

The sub-miniature proximity sensor FT 10 BlueLight is specially designed for the detection of objects with strongly light-absorbing surfaces – or example of black plastic parts. It even guarantees reliable detection with very reflective or transparent objects. Tiny in size, it can be very easily integrated in production lines.

A 2D sensor equipped with a variety of detectors offers countless advantages, particularly with components that are inaccurately fed. From simply checking the presence of components or counting objects, to inspection tasks – VISOR® Object is always a reliable solution. It recognises, for example, whether the correct component is arriving in the right position and whether an attachment is possibly missing.
VISOR® Allround is a true multi-talent among vision sensors. The Allround sensor version unites the functions of VISOR® Object (including calibration, pattern matching, contour, calliper, BLOB) with the powerful tools of VISOR® Code Reader. As a result, it is easily possible to combine tasks, such as, checking the presence and position of a sticker with simultaneous part identification through code reading.

The FT 55-RLHM shows off its talent when normal scanning sensors reach their limits, for example, when detecting flat gaskets, Thanks to its small hysteresis – adjustable via I/O-Link – and large operating range, it guarantees the necessary reliability for utmost quality inspections during object detection.

The following application examples show you the possible uses of our products in practice.
The quantity of screws required for battery pack assembly is stored in a bunker feed system and fed from there to the screwing systems accordingly. For smooth production, it is important that misaligned screws are detected by the sensor and only those in the correct position are fed to the screwing system.
In many applications, connector harnesses with colour-coded pin positions are used to make electrical connections between different components.
During the assembly and production of electronic parts, connectors must be attached to printed circuit boards, and wires or cables are inserted in the connectors. The aim of the application is to check whether a connector has been fully inserted into the socket.
During final product control, it is to be checked that the products have a uniform appearance. The aim of the application is to guarantee the correct position of adhesive labels on packaging so that the products appear identical on the sales shelf.
During final product control it is checked that the products are correctly sealed. The aim of this application is to check that closures are fully sealed so that products cannot leak during transport.
The labeling of the battery pack requires the manual application of safety and identification stickers. Incorrect or inaccurately positioned labels could lead to misinterpretation or misuse of the battery pack, necessitating label verification.
The quantity of screws required for battery pack assembly is stored in a bunker feed system and fed from there to the screwing systems individually. For subsequent control of the correct position of the screws , they must be detected at a specific position in the feed system in order to provide a trigger signal.
When manufacturing ball bearings, it is vital to know that the bearing has the full number of balls. The aim of the application is to inspect a ball bearing after assembly to ensure it is complete.
Regardless of whether the wiring is automated or manual, it is necessary to check the connector latches. Improperly latched connectors can trigger a subsequent defect and cannot be corrected due to the battery pack design.
During assembly, it is frequently necessary to align two metal sheets as close as possible in the joining process in order to guarantee a good weld seam. The aim of the application is to determine the gap between two metal sheets and to transfer the measured value to the control system.
High precision is of utmost importance during the application of lubricant. However slight irregularities may occasionally occur, which can compromise the production process. It is therefore important to detect potential errors at an early stage.
Inside the battery pack there are wiring harnesses which need to be fixed with fastening clips. Failure to engage the clamps correctly can result in damage to the cables or rattling noises during subsequent driving operation.
The protection of external electrical connections and coolant lines requires the manual application of protective caps. Without protective caps, accidental contact with high-voltage connections or damage as well as contamination may occur, so their presence must be monitored.
Throughout the production process, a large quantity of data is generated that has to be monitored and checked. The operator must be able to consult, manage and evaluate this data easily in order to identify and implement any necessary modifications to the process.
