Developing and constructing vial manipulation mechanism to be used in glass particle inspection system
Automated inspection system is starting to replace manual inspection in industry because it can increase the productivity and reduce human error. This thesis objective is to design and construct an automated inspection system which is able to manipulate a vial by lifting and rotating it using a rotary pneumatic cylinder and a servo motor within industrial vial production line. The vial is inspected by Omron vision system for glass particle contaminants with size of 0.2 mm2 in all surfaces. The vial inspected has a diameter of 14 to 25 mm and total length of 23 to 62 mm. By synchronizing between the mechanical system, the PLC, the motor controller, and the vision system, four images of vial is grabbed which represents all surfaces of each vial. An operator panel is used as HMI to manage operation of the system. There are some recommendations such as applying suction to grip the vial, giving flexibility to determine number of images to be taken, and using external encoder.
