Vision detection quality control station

Camera system is checking straightness of metal contacts on parts. There are two contacts and they are checked separately.

Camera Cognex In-Sight

Workstation is equipped with camera Cognex In-Sight 2000 and it is connected to existing control system Siemens S7-300.

We produced nest for positioning and fixing checking parts. On the bottom of the nest there are moving pins controlled by pneumatic valves which are protecting part from sliding down. Poka-yoke is made with shape of nest and covers.

To start checking procedure part is putted on the position and if result is OK, part is moved to sliding tray. If checking result is not OK, is not possible to move part by hand to sliding tray and red led signalization is on. Checking station was implemented to existing production line to increase quality of production.
