Inspect products for damage and confirm dimensions
Defective or faulty manufacturing damages consumers’ perception of a product’s quality and safety. Manufacturers must catch structural and cosmetic defects immediately in order to ensure customer satisfaction and minimize losses. Just a few seconds of defective production can translate into many rejected batches, causing waste and financial loss. Some defects can be hard to detect due to part orientation or color.
By reducing the incidence of error during production, Cognex vision inspections help manufacturers meet stringent quality standards and guarantee customer satisfaction.The DS1000 laser displacement sensor catches broken, misshapen parts regardless of their color without specialized lighting or programming. The DS1000 inspects the dimensions of a product including length, width, and height as it travels along the conveyor. Damaged or otherwise defective parts are rejected before they proceed to packaging and distribution, helping to avoid expensive returns and protect brand reputation.
