The Foreign Object Detection System quality control system detects foreign objects on simple surfaces, but also on demanding surfaces such as high-voltage batteries. The scalable system makes it possible to test a wide range of surfaces, regardless of their structure, texture and color. 3D cameras and the laser triangulation method ensure consistently high inspection quality. It maps surfaces three-dimensionally, thus detecting even the smallest foreign objects of the most varied shapes. In addition, customer-specific requirements can be integrated into the system, such as the detection of missing or incorrectly positioned screws.

At a glance

  •    -   Optical testing system for foreign object detection based on the laser triangulation method

MC Four Ways Omrons New Factory Drive Recorder Helps You Determine Root Causes 1 400

If a product is scratched by a robot but nobody was there to see it, how do you know what exactly happened? Intermittent problems in manufacturing lines (such as die casting) can cause millions of lost $$$ when repair workers are forced to troubleshoot without any idea of what may have caused the problem or when the problem will occur again.

Omron’s Factory Drive Recorder addresses this issue by letting you monitor machines or areas within your facility and capture what happened just after or prior to a triggering event. Whether your application involves progressive die casting, machine tooling, bottle inspection, high-precision welding, or something else, this solution can save troubleshooting time.

Omron looks at four ways that automation engineers, quality control engineers, system designers, purchasers, and maintenance personnel can benefit from this technology.
