Component Pallet Infeed Verification
Components manually loaded onto a pallet are verified with vision sensors for proper load. Pallets ride arrive to the verification station on an accumulation conveyor. Status lights at the station will notify the operator if a part was incorrectly loaded. As soon as the pallet is determined to be loaded correctly, a pneumatic pallet stop will release the pallet into the machine for assembly.
The vision sensors are flexible and can be programmed to detect multiple part variants. When the operator selects a different part variant to process after changeover, the cameras automatically switch detection programs for the new part variant.
