Line downtime was an ongoing issue due to the inability of their existing sensors to detect failures, coupled with their existing sensors shorting-out regularly.
Ind-Tech visited site to inspect the current sensors and recommended switching to IFM Vision Sensors. In automation technology, vision sensors have become an integral part in today’s assembly, production and quality monitoring. The O2D object recognition sensor with orientation-independent contour verification solves tasks like presence and position monitoring, quality control as well as sorting and counting.
“The sensors have been a great improvement for our assembly process and quality. We have significantly reduced our assembly times and improved failure detection at the same time.”
