INNOVATION THROUGH AUTOMATION

High-Speed Vision Inspection

About Vision Inspection Systems

Vision systems display 2D or 3D maps of the manufacturing environment for optimized picking, placing, orientation control, etc. This technology improves throughput and quality. Vision systems are also used to verify parts for accuracy for quality control purposes. We have built many vision systems to fulfill our customer’s process needs.

Vision Inspection in Manufacturing

For decades, Midwest Engineered Systems has routinely utilized vision systems in many of our designs.  These vision systems are sophisticated enough to eliminate the need to manually inspect and measure materials as they cycle through a system.

By using automated high-speed inspection vision systems, materials can be quickly and accurately checked for consistencies in the production line.  MWES’s inspection systems are custom designed to incorporate different handling and feeding concepts for almost any part style.

Midwest Engineered Systems builds and implements systems that take advantage of vision systems. Utilizing these systems provides our customers with greater cycle times and a great ROI.

Defect Inspection Systems

Human inspectors tend to find defects based on expectations and prior knowledge. That in turn makes the job done by humans inherently unreliable due to their subjective nature. With increasing demands for consistency and efficiency, humans performing this tedious, costly job can be replaced with computerized vision systems. These vision systems can help reduce human workloads and labor costs while increasing overall throughput.

Barcode Vision Systems

Over the last two decades, automated barcode scanning systems have become a mainstay in parcel inspection and processing systems. Scanning solutions are used by all major sorting and distribution centers around the globe. Historically this activity had to be done by hand, which is far more prone to mistakes as well as a much slower, labor-intensive process. Automated vision systems such as these dramatically increase the speed at which parcels can be processed and sorted automatically without leaving the conveyor system.
