One Piece Part Verification Array Pick-to-Lights: PVD Series

PVD_Group

 

  • Patent-pending, easy-to-use sensor is suited to many part assembly, pick-to-light, and error-proofing applications.
  • One-piece self-contained sensor requires no controller.
  • Sensor automatically operates in either diffuse or retroflective mode, depending on the application.
  • Supply voltage is 12 to 30V dc.
  • Output is NPN or PNP selectable using DIP switches.
  • Setup and adjustment are automated.
  • Wide beam pattern simplifies alignment.
  • Large green job lights initiate users action, job lights turn red to indicate errors.
  • Two lengths fit existing bin sizes and configurations.

Order Fulfillment: Wide Shelf
Order Fulfillment: Wide Shelf

Each wide shelf is equipped with a one-piece EZ-LIGHT PVD pick-to-light sensor in retroreflective mode, which has a range of up to 2 m. The PVD lights up on the bin from which the worker should select the map to ship.

Part Pick Verification for Large Bins
Part Pick Verification for Large Bins

To reduce the risk of error in an assembly operation, a one-piece EZ-LIGHT PVD pick-to-light sensor is placed on the top rail of a shelf, looking down on the shelf opening. The PVD is interfaced with a process controller that is programmed to illuminate the PVD on the bin to pick. After the PVD detects that the assembler's hand has entered and left the bin, the controller signals the PVD on the next bin to pick.

Bin Picking for Order Fulfillment
Bin Picking for Order Fulfillment

In a book packing warehouse, the rack above each carton of books is equipped with a one-piece EZ-LIGHT PVD pick-to-light sensor. A worker fills orders by selecting the quantity of each book specified on the packing slip. To make it easier for the worker to find the cartons from which to pick books, the PVDs above those cartons are illuminated. The PVD detects the workers hand in the carton to verify that the title was picked.

Pick-to-Light Solutions

Several technologies and solutions are available for bin-picking applications for error-proofing processes. Light arrays prompt the operator for part selection with integral job lights, then reliably sense retrieval of the part, using an array of visible red or infrared sensing beams located in front of the bin.

Pallet Detection for Conveyance Equipment
Pallet Detection for Conveyance Equipment

A leading manufacturer of conveying equipment designs and builds high-quality, low-cost conveyance solutions. The pallet equipment they develop is expected to reliably convey, palletize and depalletize thousands of pallets and unit loads annually. This equipment must be able to sense a wide range of different pallet types and sizes to ensure the proper packing and unpacking of pallets and avoid line slow-downs, pallet crashes and collapses.

Detecting Parts Ejected from Die
Detecting Parts Ejected from Die

In the manufacturer's facility, operators manually insert and remove metal parts from the die press. When complete, the parts are sent into a bin via a metal chute. In order to prevent die crash (having double parts in the press at once) the customer needed a sensor that could detect various parts on the chute and send a signal to the control system, indicating that the press is free and allowing the operator to perform another stroke. The solution needed to be installed without cutting slots in the chute sides or mounting sensors at the end of the chute, which could create catch points for traveling parts.
