At line speed.
In automotive and electronic manufacturing, the parts are not flat. Therefore, the path of the adhesive is not flat. On top of that, the adhesive itself has depth, dimension, and variables of its own. So traditional two-dimensional cameras are useless in monitoring the full picture of application. Meanwhile, the part may or may not have settled perfectly into the fixture. And the nozzle may have drifted away from the part surface due to part-to-part variation, or the robot may not be functioning correctly. Complex? Absolutely. Solvable? That’s where we come in.
Coherix has solved 3D vision for inline inspection at line speed. We have more than 2,500 systems already in use, in the most visionary manufacturers in the world. Whether it’s batteries, doors, glass, or complex parts, we track the dispensing path up and down and all around the part, comparing the shape, the volume, the location of the adhesive bead to the manufacturers’ specifications. All in the seconds that it takes the robot to put down the bead. What does this mean? Certainty of process. Confidence and consistency in result. And efficiency on an entirely new level. Welcome to the next dimension in performance.
Keep moving forward.
