Should You Use Vision Systems for Quality Control?
Thursday, July 25, 2019

Sustaining quality control and improving it remain a top concern for any manufacturer who wants to build long lasting relationships with their customers. Quite simply, if the target market of a manufacturer can depend on their ability to produce products that consistently meet their expectations, it's far more likely that their business will keep growing.

The methods used by companies vary, but their ultimate goal is to find the most cost effective and accurate system of quality assurance. For many years, manual inspection was considered the most reliable method of quality assurance. However, even the most agile and keen-eyed workers can make mistakes.

Machine Vision System for Inspection

Machine vision systems offer the opportunity of reducing wastage and increasing data surrounding the line of production. Despite that, there was hesitation around implementing these systems into existing process. They were seen as too expensive, difficult to integrate and limited in their capabilities.

The machine vision technology has significantly evolved over the past few decades with barcode readers, 2-D and 3-D technologies becoming common place. However, there's still hesitation from a few companies and manufacturer who aren't sure of their value. With the advancements in technology, inspections can bow be carried out at an extremely fast rate on production lines. Moreover, machine vision systems are more accurate than human beings.

The term "vision inspection" covers the whole spectrum of automated inspection systems including digital standard 2-D cameras, 3-D laser scanners and more. 3-D vision combines with robots to perform tasks like picking objects, putting parts together, etc. that once required human input. As artificial intelligence technology because in reality, there's very little that cannot be achieved with vision inspection systems.

Why Use Vision Systems for Quality Control?

Vision systems can be employed for quality control tasks like reading and checking product labs, measuring objects to check whether they're correctly manufactured and sensing where products on a conveyor are so that a robot can pick them up and place accurately for packaging or further process.

An automation vision inspection system will be extremely fast, accurate and reliable if it's properly calibrated and installed. Automating quality control using vision systems provide many benefits compared to manual inspections. For instance, it can run 24 hours a day 7 days a week without any breaks. It doesn't suffer fatigue like humans do and it is much faster and more accurate than humans. Typically, the time saved from running without breaks pays for cost of vision inspections in a short time.

In a nutshell, automated vision inspection systems are ideal for quality control as they are faster, more accurate and can work non-stop for hours. If you wish to get your hands on quality automated inspection systems, visit Cincinnati Automation.
