Vision sensors make big impact on quality control applications
Sensing specialist Baumer has made an important contribution on a successful project, working in conjunction with The Technology Business, a Manchester based provider of integrated automation and inspection systems. Baumer supplied their Verisens VS XC and XF vision sensors which have proven to be an effective vision solution for The Technology Business inspection systems.
Typical uses for The Technology Business systems include quality control and improvement applications in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, automotive, assembly and handling industries. The company supplies smaller systems for integration into customers’ existing systems, up to complete bespoke systems incorporating vision and printing functions.
Commenting on the contribution made by Baumer, Barry Fowler, managing director of The Technology Business said: “We appreciate the robustness and ease-of-use of the Verisens vision sensors. The low-cost of ownership and price performance ratio were important factors in our decision to choose Baumer sensors to be integrated into our quality control systems. Also, Baumer were the only supplier able to offer us an IP69K rated vision sensor.
“Furthermore, thanks to the performance of the Verisens sensors and our ability to fully integrate them into existing PLC systems, we have overcome some specific challenges across a number of applications.”
The range of Verisens vision sensors are ideal for automation technology applications combining the benefits of high quality sensing, along with maximum functionality and versatility. They provide image based processing and identification with one single sensor, are easy to configure and can be connected via digital I/O and industrial Ethernet.
