ALS Mechatronic has launched its latest innovation from its vision system range, the Quality Dimension Check Bench (Qdc Bench).
Qdc Bench™ enables container manufacturers and their customers to proactively fault find and reduce waste, thereby ensuring complete quality control and a great reputation for high quality product.
It uses state of the art technology, including high grade optics and high-resolution industrial cameras, to capture and record bore and thread dimensions, these are essential periodic checks required during container production and filling process to ensure faults are quickly identified and that quality is assured.
This new system replaces manual processes, i.e., operators using a vernier and manually recording results on paper, which potentially introduces translation errors, data loss or results not being stored for future reference. With a lack of traceability, root cause identification becomes problematic, multiple people across multiple shifts may be conducting random quality checks with no standardised method of measurement.
Both time and natural light are rare in a busy factory environment; however, using the Qdc Bench capable of high accuracy and sub-pixel measurement will guarantee picking up defects every time and can deliver quality assurance with ease. The highly intuitive system means that users can quickly and easily add new container/ bottle recipes (bottle sizes and their measurement tolerances), calibrate and train the machine without the need for any engineering or external support.
Andrew Steward, Managing Director at ALS Mechatronic said: “We are so pleased to release our latest piece of R&D using vision system technology. Consistent high-quality product output is crucial for our customers’ reputation, the Qdc Bench will be an important asset in ensuring this is achieved and waste reduced. We sold the first one before we had even finished developing it.”
