Gear Inspection

A single industrial In-Sight 5400 is used to detect that gears have been correctly loaded before they are assembled.

After loading into the machine by the operator, an In-Sight 5100 with PatMax software, identifies whether the gear is correctly positioned, and rejects those which are the wrong way up.

The vision system can detect the following problems:

  • Gears incorrectly loaded
  • Gear incorrectly positioned
  • Gears incorrectly welded to other components

Features of the system:

  • High performance industrial In-Sight Vision Sensor
  • IP67 camera enclosures
  • Simple front light provides back lighting in limited space
  • Robust inspection tools to identify shape of part
  • Faults tracked through to reject station
