Description of Process:

Parts are automatically assembled and transferred to a walking beam track. When the part indexes to the camera stations, it is conveyed over a modified section of track which is necessary to back light the connector. The walking beam passes the part in front of the cameras and an image is snapped in half-inch increments of each variable length connector. The part is inspected while in motion in order to eliminate the need for accurate positioning. The inspection insures all components are present and gap measurements are correct. If the part is found to not be acceptable it is automatically removed from the track into a rejection bin. If the part is found to be acceptable, it is passed to Laser Marking and subsequent Packaging.
