Summary

The Control and Vision PC actively participates in the marking process, controls data to be marked and verifies that data has been correctly stamped.

  • Broadcasting connection: Data from the production line vehicles are received.
  • PLC network: Control the installation status, robot marking status etc. This communication allows the process between both system to synchronize perfectly.
  • Cameras: Proportion the images to the vision card contained in the computer.

Provide 100% marking quality verification – to track along the entire assembly line using strategically positioned cameras.
