The Automated Inspection Station has been designed to perform an automated visual inspection of pressurized and evacuated catheters. With the modification of part fixtures it may be reconfigured to inspect a variety of other parts. The Automated inspection Station consists of the following systems:
- A vision system consisting of an EZVision™ I2X machine vision system.
- A motion control system consisting of an Intelligent Actuator ICS-2 axis motion controller.
- A pressure/ vacuum system consisting of a Tescom 3000 pressure controller, a vacuum generator and associated solenoid valves and piping.
- The Tescom 3000 provides control for 450-psi air to the part to be inspected. The vacuum generator is driven by air and provides up to 15” Hg. Of vacuum to evacuate the part to be inspected.
