CHALLENGE

To prevent injection of counterfeit product into the supply chain, the print shop manufacturer had a client request to serialize all the products that get placed onto consumer shelves, along with inner boxes, master cases and pallets.


SOLUTION

A custom ASP.Net application was developed to augment the manual process of packing products into inner boxes, master cases and stacking them on pallets. The system generated barcode labels and print them to a Zebra printer. These labels would get affixed to the product, and boxes. The product was scanned with a Cognex Dataman handheld ID Reader prior to being backed into a box. Once the box was filled, the barcode box was scanned, and all the relational data was stored to a database. Similarly, the filled inner boxes, would get added to master case the boxes were scanned, and relational data stored. Master boxes where then added to a pallet and once the pallet was full, a pallet flag containing all the master cases, along with total product and inner box counts.

CHALLENGE

QR code and human readable text on the trading card would occasionally not match. Updated the user configuration and faulty remote software.


SOLUTION

Deployed in less than two weeks with surplus stock, using 4VT’s standard framework and a VisionPro Quickbuild script. Cards were fed onto a vacuum belt, triggered by a photoeye, and if there was not a match, system would blow the product off at the air gap between the vacuum belt and the accumulator belts at a rate of 10 cards per second.

CHALLENGE

A scheduling system dictates the components to be assembled on a diesel engine head.  This information is written to an RFID tag that is attached to a carriage.  The client needed a way to validate the correct engine head was loaded onto the carriage and get its information (production date, parent, and serial number) married to the RFID tag. (7) different head types will need to be handled by this system.


SOLUTION

Multiple Cognex Dataman cameras are oriented in a work cell.  As the carriage enters into the work cell and stops, an RFID reader gets the part type and passes that to the HMI software, which triggers 1 or 2 cameras.  The cameras extract the date, parent, and serial number for a 2D matrix dot pin barcode and the HMI software writes the data to the RFID tag and an edge database.  If the parent number is not valid for the current part type, the error is flagged for an operator to review.  In the event of a poor barcode, the operator has the ability to enter the information manually.
