Process control for spun-lace using machine vision

Measure air permeability and density for SpunLace processes

There is a relationship between air permeability and fabric characteristics such as fabric weight, thickness and density for many non-woven types. Vision systems now seek to provide added value for producers by improving the capability around process control tasks such as formation analysis to enable this.

Seattle based company automates it's injection molding process using vision

Automotive molded parts inspected automatically using    VisionFlow 

Seattle based molded part supplier to the automotive industry requested a system to take a wide variety of large parts, some 24" wide and inspect each part as it is placed on a conveyor by a robot and then removed. OneBoxVision developed the complete unit, including the transport and pre-configured to to be used for all SKUs.   The system was built using off the shelf components and OneBoxVision used  VisionFlow, a complete suite of vision tools for part inspection. This includes tools for measurement, defect detection and the part verification . The software supports machine parent control interfaces for conveyors, linear slides or direct PLC communications.

How can Industry 4.0 help overcome quality and process issues?

IOT for machine vision networks 

Industry 4.0 thinking and the industrial Internet of Things are transforming manufacturing and industrial operations through deeper visibility, greater connectivity and enormous potential for improvement.

Companies using Industry 4.0 based principles are finding that they bring people, processes and equipment together, from vision sensors and smart cameras to entire machine vision systems. Connectivity deepens operators’ understanding of events and sharpens decision-making. The proliferation of smarter end points, data analytics, scalable computing, mobility and visualisation are reshaping the future of industrial automation.
