Brake Assembly

This machine was an inspection system which verifies correctness of brake assembly for heavy trucks. There is a conveyor delivering the part into a two-camera inspection area.

Attached to the conveyor are two not available diffused mode optical sensors and corresponding stops for part placement and staging. Each camera is mounted to a RoboCylinder slide; camera placement is determined by the size of the part.

There is a pusher system to correctly place the part on the conveyor. After a successful inspection of the part, the stops lower releasing the part. This also allows the next part into the inspection area.
Pass/fail results were displayed on the HMI and could be output to customer’s PC.
