Brake Disk Inspection

This robust application is designed to inspect the position of the threaded holes for the wheel mounting on car brake discs.

Additionally the vision system checks the inside of the threads to ensure that the thread is present and not damaged.

The vision system can perform the following functions:

  • Detect damaged thread in hole
  • Identify missing thread in hole
  • Verify correct presence of holes
  • Check correct brake disc type on the conveyor

The features of the system are:

  • Robust In-Sight Vision Sensor with industrial housing
  • Simple operation utilising PatMax┬« from Cognex to recognise and identify many different types of parts
  • Sensor can be left to run as a stand alone unit with or without operator interface
  • Results passed to PLC via Ethernet connection so PLC can act on results
