Rollinx is a visual inspection machine for the dimensional
and surface control of balls and spheres. It is able to check
the surface of the piece to identify main defects as cut, flash,
lacking material, holes and halos, double-mouldings, roundness,
etc. The equipment is controlled by a PC managed by
a operating system Real-Time that make both the elaborations
on the images and the interaction with the operator
through simple and intuitive interface. The system RealTime
offers a good stability to the system and extremely elevated
The images are captured by digital industrial cameras and are transferred, without losses or interferences to the PC through Firewire connection.
The machine can be employed for the control of high precision balls and spheres in rubber, plastic and other materials within the limits of the vision field.
The feeding device delivers the pieces to check from a vibrating
bowl feeder to a glass pipe. 3 high speed cameras
acquire 10 pictures of every part and after images elaboration
the system separates good and bad in different boxes.
You can view real time statistics and all production times,
the number and the type of defects and the state of filling
of the accumulation zones, it is possible to save the production
reports with graphics and statistic data and to integrate
them on the management system for subsequent processing.
The statistic software elaborates the data and calculates
the values of production capability (CPK), furnishing a
feed-back on the production parameters.
Machine downtime is kept to a minimum by the ease of cleaning and component changing together with the storing of all configuration parameters.
