This custom application, developed for a international producer of automatic fire suppression systems, uses a Fanuc LR Mate 200i D robot to present sprinkler heads to a hydro-tester.  Based on the results, the heads are either rejected or presented for automated final assembly.  Next, the finished sprinkler heads are inspected using a three-camera Keyence vision system (currently under development).  The vision system inspects for angle position, thread type, and correct assembly of other components.  Based on the inspection results, the sprinkler heads are either rejected or send down stream for packaging and shipping.

Box Printing with Keyence Vision System Inspection

Vision and Measurement

This box printer, designed and built for a medical products supplier, receives a packed carton of IV bags, properly orients the box, prints FDA-approved copy--to include the packing date--on each box.  The cell then uses a single-camera Keyence vision system to verify the accuracy and density of the printing.

Automated IV Bag 100% Inspection

Performance Automation custom designed and built this inspection cell for an international auto parts supplier.  The cell uses a two-camera Keyence vision system to conduct automated inspection of cast steel damper pulleys.  The system inspects the pulleys for concentricity, uniformity of dimensions, and inclusions in the casting.  

Automated Test an​d Inspection

Performance Automation custom designed and built this laser auto part marking cell for an international auto parts supplier.  The cell marks plastic parts with information provided by the manufacturer to ensure traceability.  After marking, the cell uses a three-camera Keyence vision system to inspect the final product.  The vision system verifies the presence of all required parts, the correct sequence of operation of the parts within the assembly, and the readability of the laser-engraved markings.

Laser Auto Part Marking Cell

Performance Automation developed this custom application for an international supplier of medical products.  The machine uses a Fanuc LR Mate 200i D robot to deshingle IV bags, place them on platens for presentation to tandem Videojet thermal transfer printers.  Following the printing cycle, each bag is inspected using a Keyence vision system.  The bags are inspected for print position, pixel count, and correlation of human-readable characters to bar codes.  More information on the printing application can be found on the FACTORY AUTOMATION & CONTROLS page.  Additional information about the automated pick-and-place using a Fanuc robot can be found on the ROBOTICS page.
