If you are a systems integrator or vendor involved in a vision system that features LED lighting from Smart Vision Lights, you may be interested in a contest being held by the company that offers a grand prize of $1,000.
Plastics company Sistema had introduced a new range of plastic food containers that used smaller clips, and issues in the manual production process arose that led to the search for an automated solution. In order to keep with up demand, Sistema tasked ControlVision with the integration of a system would ensure accuracy for the clip placement while maintaining speed on the conveyor belt.
ControlVision’s system used two vision-guided Adept robots to add the clips to containers at the rate of one every two seconds. Upstream of each robot, used to pick and place the clip, were a pair of scout scA640-74gm cameras from Basler with 640x480 resolution. With a 25mm focal length Fujinon lens from Fujifilm, these two cameras capture a 250mm x 200mm field of view of the clip, which are sent to Control Vision's VisionServer software to determine their position.
Interested parties can send a quick email and Smart Vision Lights will contact you at your convenience to discuss your solution and get you entered. Additionally, if you’d rather fill out an online form, click here. Enter by June 26 for your chance to wine.
