Keeping Your Production Line Moving with a PCI Frame Grabber
Posted by: Site Administrator on Monday, February 20, 2012 at 12:00:00 am
When the vendor sold you his latest fully automated CNC milling machine, he told you that it would produce the most accurate parts you have ever made at speeds you could never have imagined. The only problem with this claim is that no matter how hard they have tried, your operators just can't seem to get the machine up to speed. Using a machine vision system with a PCI frame grabber from Alacron can help.
If you install a machine vision system with a PCI frame grabber and CCD camera, your operator will be able to virtually stop the milling process at any point and watch it step by step. This way he can see when and where the problem starts to occur and be able to make any changes in programming or the machinery itself to eliminate the problem and get the machine up to the promised full operational speed.
