Improve material yields and lower manufacturing costs
AlignPlus software provides the accuracy, flexibility, and scalability to handle the demands of flat panel display (FPD) manufacturing processes such as lamination, polarizer & film attachment, laser cutting, and bonding. It enables rapid deployment without needing experts. Because it can support up to 16 cameras and multiple alignment systems in a single industrial PC, AlignPlus optimizes hardware costs, reduces installation and integration complexity and provides a convenient central dashboard for monitoring operations.
Exceptional accuracy for high-precision alignment applications
Cognex’s patented PatMax and LineMax vision technologies quickly and accurately locate fiducials and edges under a variety of lighting, positioning, and part variation conditions. Included calibration tools compensate for the smallest optical distortions and non-linear motion system errors to obtain high system level accuracy.
Automated routines accelerate time to value
Complex set up, calibration, and process adjustments can lead to extended commissioning times and costly delays. Using automated set up routines, such as built-in motion diagnostics and patented calibration techniques, AlignPlus delivers consistent performance across lines, shortens commissioning time without requiring field vision experts.
Scalable and flexible architecture improves ROI
AlignPlus’ scalable architecture is designed to easily add more alignment stations and cameras without confronting the complexity and expense of additional controllers. It supports selecting from a broad range of Cognex or 3rd party cameras, and IPC configurations for optimal price and performance. Standard ethernet TCP/IP interface means AlignPlus can work with most stages and robots.
High accuracy and robustness
Industry standard PatMax pattern location tools and LineMax edge finding tools provide sub-pixel accuracy even in noisy or low contrast images such as flexible panels, beveled glass and jet-black housings.
Motion diagnostic capability
Built-in static and dynamic testing pinpoint sources of alignment error and saves valuable time during machine commissioning.
Catches errors quickly before volume production and improves product quality.
Flexible camera choice
Supports a broad selection of Cognex or 3rd party cameras ranging from VGA to 31MP resolutions that can be optimized for performance and price application needs.
Automated calibration delivers quick and consistent performance across production lines without requiring vision expertise.
Complete solution with customizable operator interface, recipes and logging to accelerate development.
