The company turned to Octum, a Cognex Partner System Integrator (PSI), to install a solution based on the In-Sight 5400 vision sensor family.

Octum claims to have implemented a system that identifies 20 different types of components and inspects them for defects and positioning.

The company also said reliable feature detection and incorporation of the sensors can identify right- or left-hand components. The difference between the two is usually very slight and sometimes parts are fitted on the wrong side of the seat. The sensors are designed to notice theses errors and inform an operator.

Markus Röder, of Keiper, praised Cognex, describing it as ‘a reliable international vision supplier’.
