Overview

Automatic inspection of the packaging condition (quantity and order) of connecting rods, one of the main engine components.

Challenge

At a connecting rods manufacturing factory, the rods must be lined up in designated order at the time of shipment. The checking of the order is conducted visually by human which has caused complaints from suppliers due to human inspection mistakes.

One unit of shipment tray contains approximately 280 connecting rods. As the inspection requires checking the numbers on the connecting rods, it takes about 5 minutes for this visual operation which leads to the occurrence of human error.

Benefits


Reduces inspection time by 102 hours within a month
