A new automatic inspection machine sorts small parts based on pre-programmed dimensional tolerances such as length, width, diameter, and more. Several models are offered, for parts ranging in size from ¼" to 2". The machine inspects and sorts up to 3,600 parts per hour with an accuracy of ± 0.0001”

Employing a high speed camera and proprietary Video Gage technology, the new sorter inspects each part and automatically places it into an accept or reject bin.

In operation, parts are fed by a vibratory bowl feeder onto a gravity track which separates and individually places them under the camera for inspection.  A video processor captures the image of each part, measures the pre-programmed features, and places the part in the corresponding bin.

The sorter can be programmed for multiple parts, adding to its versatility.  Complete software is included.  All measurements are available for data collection via a serial port.
