We know delivering high-quality products is your top priority. Our VISOR® Object (AI) vision sensor ensures error-free assembly of every component. If an issue does arise, our sensors immediately detect and prevent further complications, helping you maintain the highest quality standards in your products.
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 automated automobile production, it is important to check whether the correct fuel hoses and clamps have been installed. The components are to be checked with the aid of a vision sensor.
In automobile manufacturing, the switches on the dashboard vary depending on the vehicle model. To ensure that the correct switches have been installed in the correct vehicle, a vision sensor should carry out a type check.
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.
Test tubes must never be mixed up in laboratory automation. The aim of the application is to check the color of test tube lids in a carrier and send the results to the control system to avoid mix ups.
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.
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.
Punched, milled or cut holes in metal sheets are checked for dimensional accuracy during assembly.
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.
During the assembly, packaging and production processes in different sectors, parts must be collected from trays for individual work steps.
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.
When assembling vehicles, sheet metal parts and / or plastic parts must be connected to one another. These are often assembled with clips which the parts are screwed or plugged together.
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.
