Technology and Mistake Proofing
A component for a medical customer required a colored stripe of foil to attach precisely to a circular part. Due to processing and occassional material imperfections, the foil could vary in size and shape, or have minor nicks. Variations in application could be very hard for human operators to see in post-molding application, so Burbak found a better pair of eyes.
We worked with camera technology to create a system that could monitor all potential variations. Mounted on a turntable station, the camera reviews parts for non-conformities and determines acceptability. Products that pass are placed into the shipping box by a automated picker. Products that don’t pass camera inspection are quarrantined by the human operator. As a result of these efforts, customer complaints have dropped to zero.
