How we work with you to ensure success?
OneBoxVision will guide you through the process of system specification for your 100% inspection solution. We will explain the trade offs and benefits based on facts and figures. The following issues are the key items to address for print inspection or surface inspection.
- Key figures that determine cost.
- Categorizing your defects.
- Choosing the right system components.
- Uses and goals of your results.
Key figures that determine your cost
When specifying a web inspection system, there are so many different technologies and issues to consider. The main factors that determine the cost of your vision system are :
- Line Speed
- Product width
- Minimum defect size.
Gaining a greater understanding of the technology is a necessary step in specifying your system. By analyzing your typical figures in those three areas above ensure's that you do not over-specify your system. Check out our article on the key figures that determine the cost of your vision system.
Categorizing your defects
Analyzing your defects and identifying the key defects that are specific to your application is a necessary step in the specification process.
5 main steps to categorizing defects:
- Identify all defects that are present where the machine vision will be installed - include upstream substrate issues.
- Identify the source of each defect.
- Identify the defects that are causing customer complaints - use a Pareto chart is possible.
- Identify any measurements that if out of specifications would result in defective product downstream.
- Identify products and categorize according to color and substrate types.
Uses and goals of your results
Before purchasing a vision system , it is vital to spend some time identifying the main goals you wish to achieve.
Some common goals among our customers include :
- Stop embarrassing defects getting to your customers- using the data generated by the system while synchronizing the data to an event on the web can help with this.
- Increase productivity - Understanding what tools are available to allow quality departments check production runs to see if there is any requirement for rework prior to converting
- Reduction in substrate waste - What is required is the ability of your quality system to use data from a variety of inspection solutions to optimize quality.
- Fault identification so as to enable process improvements - Large amounts of data produced should be used in feed forward operations to enable smart converting.
