Tappex – Further Investment in Vision Sorting Technology

Written by Steve Imm on March 21, 2019 in Blog News & Insights

Following Tappex’s philosophy of continuous improvement, we have recently invested in a new multi camera sorting machine giving a 360° view of each component.

The new machine, incorporates a glass-rotary turntable, with up to 5 individual camera stations. This gives us the capability to check critical geometry & features, including:

  • External diameters
  • Head thickness
  • Overall length
  • Presence of internal thread or burrs
  • Along with a number of other bespoke checks

The machine can reduce the industry standard defect rate of threaded inserts from < 250ppm to < 50ppm.

Vision sorting has a small on-cost, but can help to reduce the scrappage rate of the injection mouldings, offering huge potential savings, improvements in productivity, improvements in quality for your customers and improved customer satisfaction levels.
