Automation Solutions for Testing, Measurement and Inspection
For many years, IAI electric actuatore have also been used in solutions for the test, measurement and inspection industry. End users, integrators and machine builders use them in production, research and cleanroom environments.
Inspection of Glass Substrates
This device performs a sampling inspection for glass substrates. The EleCylinder transfers the glass substrate, while the cameras perform an inspection from the top and bottom simultaneously.
Workpiece Alignment and Barcode Reader
Used to measure the dimensions of wooden doors and to read barcodes.
Chocolate Quality Inspection
With smooth acceleration / deceleration, it is possible to move at a stable and high speed without the shock impact at the stroke end. This reduces the cycle time and the camera no longer need to be replaced.
3-axes Inspection Application
The electric gripper grabs the workpiece, the linear actuator moves the workpiece under the inspection camera, and then the rotary actuator rotates the workpiece to inspect the other side. 12 points of the workpiece are inspected by the camera. If the workpiece is good, then it is dropped into the OK bin.
If the workpiece is not acceptable, it is dropped into the NG (No Good) bin.
LED Illuminance Meter
Used for devices that measure the illuminance of LED fluorescent lamps.
Measuring the Pipe Diameter
Precision measuring device for the outer diameter of pipes.
Testing Circuit Boards
Testing the functionality of the contact surfaces of circuit boards by plugging them into a tester.
Thickness Measurement with a Laser
A belt-like laser beam is radiated from a pair of laser measurement devices that are located top and bottom of an automobile part to measure the inner & outer diameters.
In this application, a reciprocating movement at a constant speed is needed. The EleCylinder is ideal because a 2-point positional setting is easy and it also comes with a built-in linear guide.
Test Assembly of Piston Pin
A retaining ring, called the circlip, is used to assemble the pin that connects the connecting rod and the piston of the engine parts.
Since the circlip is manually assembled, variations will occur. If the circlip is improperly seated in the groove, it becomes a problem in that it ends up falling off later.
The RocoCylinder RCP3-TA4R table type was adopted into an automatic inspection machine after the manual assembly which eliminated the circlip failure.
The circlip is now inspected for being at the correct position at the assembly stage. It can be double checked using the zone output signal and the position complete output signal to confirm whether the circlip is positioned within the tolerance range.
Deburring and testing workpieces
The NS series orthogonal multi-slider robot is used for deburring machine parts.
One of the two Y-axes is used to deburr the parts while the second axis is equipped with a camera to check if the deburring was successful.
Sorting out Defective Components
Sorting out faulty workpieces.
Toilet Paper Inspection
Performing visual inspection of toilet paper and removing to the discharging conveyor belt defective ones that are ripped.
