System & Vision Requirements

  • Vision System uses Rockwell gantry to move a single InSight vision sensor across multiple 6-inch strips of material to take spot measurements of pattern widths
  • As the InSight moves over each strip of material (separated by ΒΌ inch) wrapped around a roller, a laser sensor detects the edge of the strip, and triggers the InSight to take an image
  • Digital I/O from the InSight control the gantry movement (Homing, Stop, Start)
  • OPC-tagged variables within the InSIght configure the # of sheets to inspect, and provide measurement results to the line control system

Vision Technology
