Dozens of rivets, fastener, and screw on a fascia means dozens of opportunities for mechanical failure. Human operator inspection is tedious, expensive and prone to error. In answer to this, Trelleborg offers automated vision inspection as part of Trelleborg’s End of Line (EOL) test system or as a stand-alone work cell. High speed camera inspection allows for 100% inspection of dozens of components while maintaining critical cycle time. In addition to checking presence or absence of critical components, cameras can check for over build, under build, orientation, and part color verification.
Our vision systems easily integrate with our other suite of test systems.
Traceability is defined as the capability for tracing goods backward along the supply chain and forward along the distribution chain based on identifying characteristics. It is essential to automotive manufacturers and an integral part of any EOL test systems designed by Trelleborg. Using barcode scanners, RFID readers, Label printers, Ethernet communication, PLC input, Trelleborg will work with the customer to develop the crucial link between the customer’s MES and the part ID. Test results can be can go beyond simple “Pass/Fail” to include archived test results and images from vision inspections.
