A variety of vision systems ensure that your parts are positioned in the correct orientation and are produced without defect. Feeding Concepts has developed vision systems for a wide range of applications, including small sensing stations with photoelectric sensors to programmable vision cameras.
Vision Camera: Inspects part for proper orientation and differentiates between good/bad parts with an air blow-off or cylinder.
Trigger/Gate: Laser or other optic sends an output signal to a vision camera (look now) or valve to successfully trigger an inspection/operation.
Level Control Switch: Regulates parts in feeder so system is populated correctly from the hopper/elevator and does not overload. These switches include laser sensors and paddle lever type switches.
Part Present: Used with dead nests and escapements. When a part is present, the sensor instantly sends a signal back to the control which initiates another operation.
High-Level Track Switch: These critical sensors are used on inlines, conveyors, and gravity tracks with parts that will not bubble-off efficiently in the bowl. When the straight-line or gravity track is full, the bowl and hopper/elevator turn off, preventing extreme wear on the equipment. Also noise levels will be low for a longer time period because the bowl and hopper/elevator will not be running full time. The track switch can activate an air jet to eject excess parts from the entrance to confinement to allow the bowl to continue to run.
Low-Level Track Switch: Used to show a low level of parts on an inline, gravity track, or conveyor. Directly configured to signal the customer's PLC when the track is low for a certain period of time.
