AE-PLC-VS Quality Control Workstation

QUALITY CONTROL WORKSTATION - AE-PLC-VS

INNOVATIVE SYSTEMS

The Quality Control Workstation with Vision System, "AE-PLC-VS", has been designed by EDIBON to study how manage a quality control system using a color camera. The "AE-PLC-VS" includes industrial components to conform the system such as PLCs, pneumatic components, industrial sensors, etc.

See general description

General Description

The "AE-PLC-VS" is a quality control system commanded by a PLC. The "AE-PLC-VS" is equipped with a color camera that identifies the pieces on a conveyor belt. Depending on different specification, the system separates the corresponding pieces using a pneumatic slide gate.

The "AE-PLC-VS" workstation has been designed as a modular system to facilitate the understanding of the equipment operation:

  • The PLC: is composed by the CPU PLC unit and all the extra modules needed to perform a correct working of the workstation.
  • The control panel: emergency stop push button switch, start/stop button, reset button, light indicator to show the state of the workstation, etc.
  • The pneumatic circuit: contains the required solenoid valves, filters and regulators to assure the correct working and safety of the unit.
  • The workstation: is composed of real components used by the industrial automatic conveyor systems such as: capacitive sensors, limit switch sensors, position sensor, etc.

The "AE-PLC-VS" workstation can work alone and/or in conjunction with other workstations to make up a complete Flexible Manufacturing system*.

*The Flexible manufacturing systems product list is available at the "60.-MECHATRONICS, AUTOMATION AND COMPUMECHATRONICS" area.
