Bowl Feeder Application

Bowl Feeder Part Orientation Application

Application Details

Customer was using a simple sensor to orientate electronic parts in a bowl feeder. These parts were changed so that the front and backside had equal level of contrast. This however, rendered the sensor ineffective.

More Control installed an Omron FQ vision sensor to successfully orientate the parts via a pattern check, rather than simple contrast.

This image shows the non H side of the part. The camera is taught the pattern and gives
an output every time this shape comes into view. An output is generated to fire the reject. Omron FQ Vision Application
