Our customer needed to minimalize the production of bad products and set up a system of manufacturing process control. The Wenglor weQube smart cameras have been able to handle all tasks during testing and our customer gave solution to his problems.
The problem: Our customer in field of automotive industry had problem with a large number of bad pieces during manufacturing process of connectors and cable harnesses. The most common problems during manufacturing process were: the terminated wires were not correctly inserted into the plastic part of the connector, wrong rotation of the terminated wire when inserted into the plastic part of the connector, wrong positioning of the terminated wires with various label or color into the plastic part of the connector. Because of growing demand for quality they were looking for a system of manufacturing process control.
The solution: In order to help the customer minimalize a large number of bad pieces during manufacturing process our sales technical representative prepared the offer that included a set of Wenglor weQube smart camera with external lighting, polarization filters and cable accessories. Set of infra cameras and infra lighting are used to check the proper position into the plastic part of the connector. Set of polarization filter are used to check the correct color layout and text markings.
The used product: WeQube camera – monochrome camera with built-in lens and infrared lighting. The functions autofocus, region of interest and tracking ensure optimal object detection. The following image processing modules are available: Dimensional accuracy check, sorting procedures, presence control, object counting, position output, pixel counting, filter options, and statistics evaluation. The second weQube camera – a smart camera is an image processing system which is capable of executing various tasks simultaneously in an optimized fashion. It records images, evaluates them with image processing algorithms and then triggers a corresponding reaction.
The resulting benefit: Using the Wenglor weQube smart camera we helped our customer to minimalize the production of bad products. We also helped to increase the quality of products and helped to set up a system of manufacturing process control. The Wenglor weQube smart cameras managed all tasks during testing and our customer gave solution to his problems.
