SOLVE YOUR PRODUCTION PROBLEMS


The problem

Boxes traveling down the line needed to be sorted into one of three stackers, depending on the dimensions of the box and their coordinating labels.

The solution

We used two cameras to identify the case codes for each box and a laser to verify the dimensions by building a three-dimensional model of each box. This also detects boxes with open flaps or other irregularities.

The results

The system has an identification and sorting accuracy of 99.9 percent and is capable of operating at speeds of 60 boxes per minute. The solution met and exceeded all of the customer’s expectations.
