Tappex – Further Investment in Vision Sorting Technology
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.
