Machine Performs Simultaneous Dimension & Visual Inspection

OMRON claims its VT-M121is the automation industry's first 2D dimension and visual inspection machine that performs simultaneously dimension and visual inspection to detect scratches and cracks on products. The machine meets the required quality standard of the automotive industry in full cooperation with SIIX Corporation. Instead of the inspection process of the sampling inspection by operators, VT-M121 enables full inspection automatically in the production line and contributes to achieving "zero defect" in automotive electronics.


VT-M121 enables detection of like or even more precisely than the human eye by using the sophisticated FH series image-processing system with the illumination pattern of the MDMC Light that can flexibly change the illumination color and the angle. Thanks to NJ damping control that integrates the sequence control and motion control, it can also minimize camera vibration and realize high-speed and high-accuracy inspection. Via simultaneous dimension and visual inspection, the machine has reduced the inspection time and improved the dimension and inspection performance with a repeat accuracy of 10 µm.
