Application Use: This press was designed with a custom tooling package to assemble three spring pins into a plate at three different locations.
|Requirement:||It was of extreme importance that these pins were inserted perfectly at each step.|
|Solution:||A Cognex Insight Vision Sensor was installed and programmed for automated error detection to ensure accuracy of the pin insertion process.|
The Cognex camera takes a picture of the pin to confirm it has been inserted correctly prior to engaging the press each time. If a pin is inserted with the wrong orientation, the monitor senses the error and the machine is disabled until the issue is corrected and the press is reset.
