Accurate sorting of electrical components is a critical step in the kitting and assembly process. Small components that look very similar often result in picking and installation errors, which can culminate in assembly rejects and product quarantine. Manual sortation is time consuming, error prone and is often difficult to achieve with high accuracy.
Cognex vision products with color and shape recognition tools speed up and error proof the sorting process. Components are identified with color and pattern matching tools and inspected for defects, including damaged parts and missing features.
