Engine Inspection System Using Robotic Arm

Concept applicable for other Products also

Application- Engine Inspection for Hole Presences, Hole Dimension, Hole Thread Presence & Data Matrix Code reading.

Criticality – Multiple Parameters , different side of the Engine.

As the measuring items were of different size, at different side of the engine, with some hole to be check for thread presences, camera programming & integration with Robotic Arm was very critical. Also we were asked to maintain the given tag time.

Solution By TechnoVision

Looking into above criticality, we have decided to go with Cognex Camera & Robotic arm for fast & accurate Inspection of Engine parameters. We have first establish the communication between Camera & Robotic Arm. Given proper coordinate to Robotic Arm to reach to specific hole. Then we have program the camera system for specific parameters to inspect.
