Nutrunner Tracking in Production Line with Image Processing

At a Glance:

  • Nutrunnner tracking under 10mm accuracy

  • Assembly process tracking part by part in the production line

  • Increase assembly process quality

  • Reduce manuel assembly process faults

  • Low hardware cost and user friendly

Goals:

 

%100 Sure Assembly Process

The core aim of the project is to prevent the assembly faults which directly reducing the product quality during the production done by employees manual movements. System provides high accuracy to meet with any assembly process requitements in any industry like automotive, electronics, engineering, industrial machinery etc. 


 

The system should meet the following requirements:

 

  • Nutrunnner tracking under 10mm accuracy

  • Assembly process tracking part by part in the production line

  • Assembly process sequence tracking to prevent wrong tigthening

  • %100 automatic exact torque assign to prevent less tightening

  • Angle tracking of the nutrunner during tightening 

  • Increase assembly process quality metrics

  • Reduce manual assembly process faults

  • Decrease the nutrunner maintenance costs

Solution:

3D Position Tracking under 10mm Accuracy

 

This solution is the first in the World which there is not any such familiar positioning project with milimeters accuracy with Image Processing.

 

System is tracking the nutrunner or any assembly tool during the production to be sure about the following important process issues:

 

  • Manual torque selection on the nutrunner: System selects the torque value from the BOM of  each assembly points to complete process. There is no need to select manually of any torque value by the assembly operator.

  • Assembly process sequence: System controls the nutrunner main units via PLC thus nutrunners can work in only defined aseembly sequence. Assembly operators can not be able complete any process breaking the sequence due to nutrunners will be locked.

  • Real process complition timing: According to assembly process details, system tracks the every assembly point process complition with timings by this means that current data can be able to compare with historical or theorical defined process timings.
