Steering Knuckle Inspection
Automated inspection regardless of part positioning
A robot-mounted Cognex vision system, with patented geometric pattern matching tools, identifies the steering knuckle by reading the characters cast into its surface. The vision system automatically adapts to changes in part position, appearance, surface finish and character spacing. Once the vision system identifies that the correct steering knuckle has been assembled to the vehicle, it sends the data with images for archiving, to the plant’s database for inventory control.
