April 4, 2016- Numina announced the release of IFM's 3-D Smart Sensor Camera as part of the Vision Pack and Audit System, V-PAS. The 3-D camera inspection is designed to provide automated conveyor systems the ability to in-motion examine the internal content of a carton prior to the pack, void, and seal process. The 3-D smart sensor imaging technology adds carton depth perception to the V-PAS System.
3-D sensing looks inside the carton and inspects the internal carton contents to determine the actual fill rate occurring during the picking process. The system performs an audit of the open cartons for pick & pack inspection and void detection measurement.
V-PAS diverts errors over or under optimal packing to the inspection re-pack lane. This prevents higher shipping costs and lowers void usage to improve customer service, and increase operational profitability.
3-D Vision "completes the loop" on cartonization software that is used to determine the right size carton prior to order release for pick to carton. V-PAS works to improve cartonization software by detecting cartonization errors due to a change in SKU weight, dimensional packaging, and will ensure SKU changes no longer go undetected.
