Vision Inspection Systems

Vision Inspection Systems Bring Speed, Reliability and Quality Assurance

Here at Wayne Automation, we pride ourselves on providing the complete lineup of systems you need for your packaging process, from tray folders and case erectors to package inserters and case sealers. Before your products leave for your customers, they must pass inspection, ensuring they have been packaged properly and sealed in accordance with your standards. To ensure your products always leave well packaged, we offer automated vision inspection systems for your end of line processes.

We offer two Vision Inspection Systems:

Benefits:

Integrated Operation

Our WVI-FC and WVI vision inspection systems seamlessly integrate with other Wayne Automation packaging stages, allowing for an automated handoff of cases and baskets into the inspection test cell, and if a case fails inspection, can be rerouted off line for further evaluation or reloading.

Intelligent Inspection

Wayne vision inspection systems use Cognex’s Insight line of 2D vision inspection cameras, powered by machine learning algorithms. These systems are self-contained and flash a pass/Fail indicator LED while in operation, allowing you to observe the pass rate for your product even without diving into the Cognex software which the cameras feed into.

Tighter Tolerances

For industries which can work with individual units in the million, tight tolerances are needed to ensure small errors don’t spiral out of control. This extends from the beverage industry up to petrochemical, which is why our vision systems are equipped not just to identify missing products, but also identify whether a case has been improperly loaded, and even ensure interpacking and partitioners are inserted properly. These vision systems also connect into your MES system, allowing them to scan the packages SKU to ensure the proper products are in the proper container.

Increased Throughput

Without automated vision systems, you rely on human operators to inspect each container. Just like automation exponentially increases throughput, a reliance on human operators works in the opposite direction, as they must hand it off, open the flaps, check section by section, and then decide if it’s a pass or fail. Add in the need for breaks, shift changeover, and the unavoidable truth that people slow down as their workday progresses, and we see how fully automated vision systems benefit every industry, no matter how stringent.

Reliability

In manufacturing we consider reliability with respect to how often the machine breaks, but in quality assurance we must consider how often an inspection step fails to identify a non compliant product or produce a false positive? Human operators are fundamentally prone to missing small details, especially if they are performing a repetitive task. With our fully automated and machine vision enabled systems, you can increase your detection capabilities and ensure incorrectly packed containers never make it to the end of the line.

Cost Savings

While it may be initially counter intuitive, the initial investment in an automated vision inspection pays dividends over time, as you save money on repairs to inferior systems or paying human operators to work around the clock shifts. Our machines are designed to last, and all maintenance is communicated through the color touch screen display so you never need to guess.
