JR Automation Technologies designs and builds Flex Feeding vision systems
Flex Feeding
Flex Feeding uses a vision guidance camera to provide information to a robot about part type, orientation, and position on a vibrating feeder or conveyor system. The robot then uses that information to pick the part. This process allows for almost endless product variations, eliminating the need for part-designated in-feed systems and machines.
JR Automation Technologies designs and builds Line Tracking vision systems
Line Tracking
Line Tracking uses a vision guidance camera to provide information to a robot about part type, shape, size, orientation and position while the parts pass by on a conveyor system. For example, a two-robot system simultaneously picks parts of various sizes and shapes while a conveyor indexes parts continuously.
JR Automation Technologies designs and builds Part Tracking vision systems
Part Tracking
Part Tracking builds on conventional vision guidance to retain information about parts as they move through a machine. This information can be used to count part quantities, locate flagged suspect parts, and determine cycle time for part to part averages. Part specific machine systems become unnecessary when part tracking is built into the machine.
JR Automation Technologies designs and builds Barcode Reading vision systems
Barcode Reading
Barcode reading uses vision cameras to read printed barcode labels or ink printed barcodes.
JR Automation Technologies designs and builds Character Recognition vision systems
Character Recognition
Character Recognition uses vision cameras to read etched, printed, imprinted, or other forms of part symbols for part recognition.
JR Automation Technologies designs and builds Dimensional Inspection vision systems
Dimensional Inspection
Dimensional Inspection uses vision to verify part dimensions and determine part quality. It also provides a report on the inspection results.
JR Automation Technologies designs and builds Part Presence Confirmation vision systems
Part Presence Confirmation
Part Presence Recognition uses sensors and vision cameras to verify part presence in nesting or end of arm tools and to check that parts are the correct color.
Our innovative solution allowed the customer to maintain a high production rate while minimizing cycle time.
