ADLINK's Single Latch Activated Multi-point Comparison Solution Significantly Reduces the Cost of Passive Component Factories
Today's electronic products are smaller and lighter than ever before. The increasingly compact components and parts used to make these electronics need more precise inspection equipment to ensure their quality. On the production line, multi-side inspection machines perform quality control checks by detecting surface defects. Most multi-side inspection machines incorporate several cameras on the conveyor belts or carousel path for greater accuracy. Every camera works with one sensor to determine the position of the component under inspection and trigger the camera. Overall, this means that a multi-side inspection machine needs multiple trigger sensors.
This approach poses some problems and limitations on the inspection process.
