Vision-enabled barcode readers with the ease-of-use and cost of laser scanners
Process Equipment Company provides automotive OEMs with a full turnkey solution that uses In-Sight® vision systems. The design has four separate systems: eddy current check, laser marking, camera verification, and the RFID read/write station, all of which are incorporated into one that enables in-line automation and equipment to process transfer gears. The verification process is vital to tracking and traceability due to the fact that the laser marks have to be verified before releasing the part to the RFID read/write station. The In-Sight camera, lenses, and software are used to verify the 2D laser marked codes on the transfer codes, assuring that tracking and traceability are achieved.
