Vision systems play an important role in production and conveyor technology. They help companies automate their production processes, increase efficiency, and improve the quality of the products they produce. To achieve optimal performance and ensure great accuracy in capturing visual information, choosing the right belt conveyor and aluminum framing system is critical.

Vision systems are image processing systems that are capable of capturing, analyzing, and interpreting visual information from machines and their surroundings. These systems use cameras to capture images of objects or processes, and then apply algorithms to identify patterns, colors, and other features. Vision systems offer many advantages in conveyor technology:


Automated inspection and identification

Vision systems can be used for automatic inspection, to ensure that products are present and free of defects. For example, these systems can detect cracks, scratches, discoloration, missing or damaged parts, and automatically sort them out. This saves time and money. Vision systems can also identify and differentiate products, which can help to sort products automatically and prevent packaging errors.


Simple measurement

Vision systems are a popular tool for accurately measuring products in conveying processes. For example, they can measure the length, width, height, or thickness of products, and ensure that they meet specifications.


Precise positioning

Vision systems are also useful for positioning products on the belt conveyor or in other applications. For example, you can detect the position of products on the belt and send instructions to the control systems to move the product to the correct location.


Optimized quality control

Because vision systems automate processing and minimize defects, they can help improve product quality. By making quick decisions about the quality of products, they help to increase production efficiency. This allows companies to prevent defective products from going on the market.


Useful real-time data

Real-time data helps companies optimize their production processes. Here, too, vision systems can help. For example, they can provide data about the speed of the conveyor system that can be used by a process control system to optimize material flow and production speed.


High-quality hardware is mandatory

To provide all these benefits, vision systems require several key factors, including clear requirements, effective software, experienced professionals, and regular maintenance and training. The selection of high-quality hardware is also crucial to ensure great accuracy and system reliability. Vision systems include high-resolution cameras, lighting systems with constant brightness, sufficiently powerful computers and processors, and robust, reliable belt conveyors and aluminum framing systems.


The more precise, the better

Montech’s flexible conveying systems are an optimal choice if you’re using vision systems since they enable our customers to seamlessly integrate their own vision systems into the conveyor system. Our belt conveyors and aluminum framing systems are not only of high quality, their precision is particularly impressive, and precision is the be-all and end-all of vision systems. Our aluminum framing systems enable precise and rigid mounting of vision systems, yet they remain flexible when it comes to handling. If you wish to shift or adjust a vision system, this is very easy to do and requires almost no effort.


Customer-specific solutions

Montech’s flexible conveyor technology is used in a wide variety of vision systems applications. Whether in the food or pharmaceutical industry, we implement individual requirements and we are also there for our customers to provide after-sales support. With our customized solutions, we ensure that our customers receive the best possible integration of their vision systems into their conveyor systems.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
