For over 15 years, ABCO Automation has been a vision systems integrator for some of the world’s leading camera manufacturers and vision software developers, including Cognex, Fanuc, Keyence, and National Instruments. Our practical experience has enabled us to deliver high performance systems that help manufacturers gain knowledge and empower change. ABCO machine vision systems help improve the quality of manufacturing and output by eliminating defects, verifying assembly, and tracking information at all production stages. Our machine vision systems are used in a wide range of applications from parts orientation and product assembly to large material handling and label inspection.
With a vision system, manufacturers receive a constant stream of information by capturing images of specific manufacturing process functions. From the data gathered, the vision system can make decisions, generally pass/fail, on operations needing an analysis. Collective data can identify problems with a manufacturing line or other function. This allows companies to:
ABCO uses a wide range of cameras, lenses, lighting, and software to create a vision system that not only provides a customized solution but offers the best performance for the cost. From a stand-alone, single camera cell to a comprehensive vision inspection and automation system with multiple cameras, we design and build systems to meet challenging needs. And, when asked, we can perform a feasibility study to prove out our solution before the design build process even begins.
Some of the tools we’ve used in vision projects include:
Design and build a robotic inspection system that could quickly and consistently inspect carbon canisters. The system would discover and reject and defective canisters, eliminating non-conforming product from entering the marketplace and reducing the potential for gasoline-powered vehicles to leak hazardous air pollutants.
