ivii.photostation

Many customers are faced with the challenge of documenting commissioned sales orders. For example, it must be noted in which state items were shipped. Thus, any complaints can be handled quickly and easily.

One picture is enough

The ivii.photostation is an optical image acquisition system that is integrated into existing work processes in an uncomplicated way. The ivii.photostation takes pictures of the load carriers (whether cardboard or plastic containers) on the conveyor. These image data are – with a time stamp and the container code (routing label) – stored on your FTP server.

Flexible application area

The solution can be installed flexibly along any conveyor system, wherever you need proof. The most common use is the goods exit before the goods are shipped to the customer.

Advantages

  • Reduction of processing time for complaints
  • Reduction of the complaint costs by tracing

ivii.smartinspector

How sure is it that all loading equipment is clean? What are the consequences if goods get into a dirty load carrier?

Ready for the next usage

The ivii.smartinspector ensures that all load carriers used are free from foreign bodies and dirt: Ready to be used again.

100 % clean empty carriers

A camera takes pictures of the load carrier on the conveyor. These images are then compared to the reference image that the ivii.smartcam has
learned before. Significant deviations indicate foreign bodies and dirt in the load carrier. Then the load carrier is diverted for special checks.

Advantages

  • Less work: Only the load carries that need processing are automatically diverted for special checks and handling
  • This check is carried out with no delay with the speed of the conveyor line
  • Easy integration thanks to a PLC interface to higher-level systems

ivii.cube

The registration of minimum durability dates and lot numbers is cost-intensive in the pharmaceutical sector with significant quality issues. The often poor readability of the article information to be captured leads to a number of negative effects:

  • Loss of concentration over the duration of working hours
  • High error rates for manual data entry
  • Manual entry of lot numbers is very time consuming

Quickly capture master data

The ivii.cube enables error-free, fast and, above all, reliable caption of article information for pharmaceutical products. The recorded data is converted into keyboard typing and can be transmitted to a wide range of systems without further adjustments.

Function

The ivii.cube has several image systems to capture printed and embossed information. The integrated image processing interprets data matrix codes and barcodes, but also recognizes plain text.

If there is a Data Matrix code, the article information is interpreted by the code reader. Alternatively, the article number is first read as a barcode and in a second step, the date of minimum durability and the lot number. The seamless integration into goods-in or returns processes is the same as with a standard handheld scanner, the GS1 standard is supported.

Advantages

  • In less than 2 seconds to article number, minimum durability and lot number
  • Consistently high quality of recorded data from printed or embossed information

Precise delivery of customer-specific C parts

Sector: Industry, Intralogistics

Würth Industrie Service GmbH & Co. KG is an independent subsidiary of the Würth Group and has more than 1,500 employees working at the location in Bad Mergentheim. Individual, tailor-made logistic procurement and supply concepts such as scanner-supported rack systems, automated electronic ordering systems or a just-in-time supply with container systems are produced.

The challenge

Quickly finding the information for up to 40 packages in a container and then transmitting it to the system.

Goods-out is where the final check of packages of screws and tools takes place at Würth. The packages lie in chaotically inside the containers. Using character recognition, the right information is detected on the package and transmitted to the customer’s higher-level system.

The ivii.solution part 1

The ivii high-resolution camera takes a photo which is scanned for information using optical character recognition (OCR). The system searches for  Article number, qunatity, length, width or ISO Standards. As soon as this information is found, it is transmitted to Würth’s higher-level system. The challenge here is quickly and efficiently detecting up to 40 packages in a container and obtaining the desired information using the image processing system.

The ivii.solution part 2

Here, ivii uses a 3D camera for industrial image processing. The 3D camera measures the length, width and height of the packages and counts the number of packages in the container.  Taking these measurements allows the smallest possible shipping carton to be selected.

Advantage:

  • Less dunnage
  • Time saved
  • Customers also do not need to dispose of extra dunnage

Ready for the future!

Würth meets all quality requirements today and in the future: Cameras and other hardware can be easily renewed with existing ivii. software.

Smooth glue application in window production

Sector: Industry, Windows

The challenge

The application of glue is a very important process in window manufacturing. During glue application, an adhesive is applied with a contact roller to a wood profile which is then joined with the aluminium profile. If this process is not performed faultlessly, in the worst-case scenario, the two parts separate from each other and the window is damaged. The window cannot be used, a new one must be made and the customer is not satisfied.  Despite the harsh industrial environment marked by dust and vibration, this process must be checked using an optical image processing system.

The ivii solution

A lightning concept for 100 % quality.

With a concept for lighting that ivii experts have designed, the glue is illuminated with UV light to make it fluoresce.  Whether or not the glue completely covers the surface is immediately obvious. Imperfections in the wood can also be detected as well as whether or not the minimum widths of the glue profile have been achieved. Thanks to the ivii lighting concept, checks for complete glue coverage are made so no windows are thrown away. The quality is raised, the customer satisfied.
