Our client, recognized the critical need to enhance quality control during the final assembly phase of their products.
The primary objectives of this project were to identify assembly errors associated with directional labels and to ensure the accurate use of tube color in the assembly process, utilizing EasyODM’s cutting-edge technology.
Project Requirements for Quality Control
- Develop a comprehensive system to verify the presence and orientation of directional labels in two designated locations using EasyODM’s machine vision capabilities.
- Implement a system capable of accurately confirming the correctness of tube color used in assembly with EasyODM’s image data analysis.
- Ensure the system provides immediate warnings (auditory and/or visual signals) in case of discrepancies or errors, facilitated by EasyODM’s real-time defect detection.
- Prevent the assembly of products with incorrectly affixed directional labels using EasyODM’s unbiased and objective inspection capabilities.
EasyODM’s powerful machine vision software played a central role in the successful implementation of the quality control system:
- The solution involved the installation of industrial cameras at the location where final product testing is conducted, ensuring a stationary environment for detection, with EasyODM as the software backbone.
- Two cameras were strategically placed, and EasyODM was trained to analyze the images captured by these cameras, confirming correct directional labels and tube color usage.
- Measures were taken to secure the area where plastic tubes are joined, guaranteeing visibility and minimizing the potential for errors with EasyODM’s consistent performance.
