NEW SURFACE SCANNING TECHNOLOGY ELIMINATES SCRAP AND IMPROVES OEE
WINDSOR, ONTARIO, CANADA -
The SPM 3C System can be used for various surface scanning applications but specifically addresses part-
The flexibility of a robot-
Jeff Yager, Director of Engineering and Sales, ABC Group FSI, says: "Several years ago we had a vision of creating a piece of equipment that would process our blow molded product in a flexible and adaptive manner. We found that there was a large gap in what we envisioned and what was actual reality due to our process variability. The SPM 3C technology was the missing functional element required to complete our vision of an adaptive flexible down line."
In addition to positional and angular corrections, the SPM 3C System can be used to measure surface flatness variations and automatically adjust process parameters to ensure consistent product quality.
SPM's patented 3C System utilizes the latest technology in 3D vision hardware and software. It is accurate to +/-
The system has been tested to ensure reliable operation under varying environmental conditions and has been successfully implemented for plastic part welding and boring operations.
SPM is actively pursuing other manufacturing sectors which would benefit from its patented 3C System.
Hans Oxenfarth, Vice President of SPM is convinced that the 3C System can be used effectively in many different applications where positional accuracy is important but challenging because of part-
This technology will change the landscape of hard automation and dedicated assembly machinery, it takes the guess work out of process set-
"With the SPM 3C System we can now overcome many of the shortcomings we had before. I have to say we have arrived at the future and it looks great.
This is a true step forward in processing equipment that will improve any user's quality and performance," says Yager.
The benefits of the 3C System can be realized in various manufacturing processes applications where positional accuracy is important but challenging because of part-
The development of the 3C System has been carried out by SPM's team of dedicated professionals who are continually striving to find the most effective solutions for their customer's problems. "We are very proud of our team's achievements" says Oxenfarth.
