Top 5 defects in injection molding

Plastic molded components produced by injection molding generate a variety of defects that require advanced vision systems to inspect in real time.  The key is to understand each defect , categorize it and to derive a traegy to find, measure and elimate it. This article looks at the top 5 defects common in injection molding.

New sensor for inspecting plastic film

OneBoxVision has integrated a complete family of low cost GigE cameras for web inspection. The new awaiba sensor family has reduced the cost of high speed imaging. By producing large sensor arrays, it is now  possible to deploy a web inspection system with little to no machine vision experience, providing your organisation advanced tecnology at a fraction of the cost.

ImageFlow 6.7 Released - New tools for converters

Building machine vision solutions can be complex. OneBoxVision's approach is to work with customers to specify the correct solution and to implement the feedback once installed. The more we spend with operators, the more we learn.

The image below shows two buttons that can be used to tag defects. Ignore allows an operator click on a defect and mark it as OK to ship and to stop the system alarming each time it is detected. This can be the case in Flexographic operations where there is a small plate defect that is not a reject. You can also flag a defect as critical and flag to for removal in a later process.

ASIX - Inspection 4.0 for plastic film

Industry 4.0 requirements are now a staple element of modern industrial automation solutions.For inspection systems this translated into the ability to conform to automation standards and integrate with historians while supplying real time data for analytics. To this end we have developed a complete video data archival capability that conforms to ISA 95 automation standards.

Inspection 4.0 for the converting industry

Inspection 4.0 for converters

The converting factory normally starts with a substrate. This can be paper , film, foil or sometimes a non-woven. More often than not it’s plastic film. Our  ASIX technology is designed to inspect rolls or sheets of plastic. Usually a converter will pass the substrate through some other value added process, whether it’s printing, laminating, perforation or pouching. Sometimes it can be all of them.

Incorporating Deep Learning will change how robots are deployed 

It is finally becoming a reality  that incorporating Deep Learning at the Edge has the potential to create a paradigm shift in the way robots are deployed in manufacturing operations and machine vision systems.  The aggressive move by robot manufacturers to reduce costs make end of line inspection by intelligent robots possible to provide a payback.
