Vision inspection systems and robotic vision automation technologies

Technical advances in vision inspection system technology is making vision assembly systems ever more popular on nearly every piece of automation. NuTec is an industry leader in integrating commercial vision hardware from a number of prominent camera, lens and lighting companies.

It’s common for NuTec to also utilize many other vision inspection methods for unique assembly verification. Making use of in-line functional product verification can assure that defects are identified immediately.

Areas of Expertise:

  • Product Identification
  • Defect Detection – (No fill, Flash, part damage)
  • Robotic Vision Guidance
  • Barcode Reading – 1D and 2D
  • Assembly Confirmation
  • Dimensional Inspection
  • Torque Testing
  • Force/ Load Testing
  • Weighing
  • Displacement Monitoring
  • Leak Testing

Process Automation

While some vision inspection systems provide feedback data to the user regarding process capability and product quality, other vision inspection systems are commonly implemented to assist just the automation equipment in performing the task at hand. These process automation systems can be expanded into these areas:

  • Alignment feedback and robot guidance

    • Incoming suture position for robot pick from conveyor
    • Lens rotation for clocking process
    • High accuracy die placement

  • Part presence and orientation

    • Incoming part orientation for flip station
    • Package content detection and verification
    • Vial stopper presence

  • Bar code trace-ability andpPrint verification
    • Label Print verification via OCR and OCV
    • 1D and 2D barcode read
    • Barcode quality grading
