CDS Manufacturing designed and built this operator loaded vision inspection machine. This system verifies that the operator has assembled the chain glide face to the chain guide arm properly.
The visiion system looks at both ends of the brackets as they slide through the inspection camera’s field of view. The vision system verifies that both locking features, one at either end, are fully engaged. If they are, a discrete punch mark is applied to each assembly. The inspected parts are automatically ejected from the system into either a good or reject output chute.
Each part is inspected in about 7 seconds.
