The tolerance range of each position can be easily set to meet the inspection requirements, according to the Japanese developers. With its QR code and barcode reading capability, the tool supports real-time data access to achieve multi-product inspection and an improvement of overall production quality. The IM-4100 is able to inspect multiple units and positions. Assembling errors, foreign parts or missing parts can all reportedly be detected in each position within 0.5 seconds to support high-volume multiple product assembly lines. The stored inspection data are used to aid production traceability and to enhance quality by feeding back the conditions of earlier process steps. As the exhibitors point out, instead of having to rely on a visual inspection of assembled components by human operators, the automation of conventional visual inspection processes in the solution effectively improves reliability in mixed-production system facilities.
Visual inspection system for parts assembly
Screen has developed the IM-4100 visual inspection system to identify defects and errors on assembled parts. Thanks to the self-developed optical system, the corresponding image processing technologies and optimized algorithms, all defects can be found within 0.5 seconds per position, the company maintains.
