New: QC Backlight Conveyors
Boasting "ultimate user-friendly conveyors", QC Conveyors now features backlight conveyors as part of their product lineup.
In this case study, three cells assemble and package electrical outlets using conveyors.
Nine of the conveyors (three per cell) have backlights installed in their frames, which provide contrast so the vision system can detect properly shaped/spaced parts and orient the robot for pickup. The conveyors stop when the vision system detects parts ready to be picked.
This robotic assembly cell let the company repurpose ten workers to other parts of the plant.
LMI Multi-Sensor 360-Degree Ring Layout
Many scanning applications require shape data for 360º of a part, while others only need one view that captures a specific feature of a part. For 360º support, a multi-sensor ring layout is an ideal solution. In this setup, the sensors are positioned around a part to capture its entire circumference. As the part moves through the sensor ring, data is “stitched” into a complete 3D model to provide accurate volume measurement. 
Gocator firmware 5.0 supports multi-sensor ring layouts, which produce a 3D point cloud of the entire circumference of a scan target without losing any data points. Measurement results from the new Profile Closed Area tool can be used to calculate total object volume.
