A large university was trying to conduct riverbed research. The objective of their application was to be able to measure the topography of the silt on the bottom of a river, and study how it changed over time. Ultimately, the university would like to have a clean 3D image of the riverbed floor. The challenge the university faced was finding a device that would be able to give them accurate measurements of the river bed in 3D, quickly, with a high number of data points. Needing to consult with experienced vision experts to find the right product, they brought their application to Sensors Incorporated. Click "Documentation" for the complete PDF!

Broken Drill Bit Detection

A consumer packaged goods (CPG) manufacturer wanted to design a robotic work cell to improve productivity, however they faced a safety challenge. The CPG wanted to not only make the cell as safe as possible, but also improve the other more convoluted multiple relay, multiple circuit componentry they had used in the past. The cell needed to have two points accessible by forklifts, hard-guarding, multiple operator Emergency Stops and 2 doors for personnel access. To aid in their design, the CPG turned to the experts at Sensors Incorporated.

Yogurt Lid Inspection and Product Changeover

Image/resized_image_for_application_box_93b682.jpg

A Fortune 500 food manufacturer was facing a challenge: they needed to inspect the seal of their yogurt cup lids. To complicate matters, their marketing team was introducing a new 2mm shorter style cup that would help reduce production costs. Invariably this forced the lid inspection system to be adjustable to accommodate the changing cup heights. ...

A Fortune 500 food manufacturer was facing a challenge: they needed to inspect the seal of their yogurt cup lids. To complicate matters, their marketing team was introducing a new 2mm shorter style cup that would help reduce production costs. Invariably this forced the lid inspection system to be adjustable to accommodate the changing cup heights. Having had success with Sensors Incorporated in the past , this large Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) company turned to Sensors again to design, prototype, test and integrate a wash-down rated system.
