SIMATIC Machine Vision Industrial image processing from Siemens



Application specific image processing

  • Intelligent vision sensor SIMATIC VS 110

  • Specially designed for the application „outline recognition“

  • Image processing as Plug & Play solution

  • No image processing expert needed

  • Ideal also for machine builders and end users



SIMATIC VS 110 - Ready to Use

  • Complete scope of supply

  • Sensor head (camera) with a pre-adjusted lens

  • Processing unit

  • Lighting unit (infrared)

  • Fast installation

  • Set-up software for PC, for precise adjustment

  • Simple teaching – no programming!

  • Push key – move „Good“ part through the range of vision like in operation – teach-in is done!



Outline inspection

  • SIMATIC VS 110 solves three tasks in a single step

    • Correct part?
    • Correctly aligned?
    • And undamaged?
  • SIMATIC VS 110 compares the contour of the

  • test objects with the taught „Good“ part



Range of application

  • Inspection of small parts

  • in infeed systems for assembly machines

  • and many other conveyor-type applications

    • Type recognition to prevent mixing with different parts
    • Faulty or damaged parts can be ejected
    • Correct parts that are reversed can be rotated


How does SIMATIC VS 110 work?



Which test objects can be inspected?

  • Small parts

  • Features relevant for inspection

    • must be clearly recognizable in the contour
  • Typical examples:

    • Screws, bolts: Type recognition, thread present?
    • Injection-molded components: Test objects correctly formed, correctly aligned for infeed?
    • Pharmaceutical products: Tablets correctly formed/broken?
    • Confectionary: Sweets or chocolates correctly formed/mis-shaped?


Which types of conveyor can be used?

  • Various different infeed systems

    • Vibrating conveyors (spiral and linear systems, ...)
    • Conveyor belts
    • Workholder carousels
    • Gripper units (pick-and-place, robots)
  • Fast processing technique

    • Up to 25 processings per second (under certain conditions even more )
    • at transport speeds of up to 15 m/min


What test results does SIMATIC VS 110 supply?

  • Output OK_A

  • Output OK_B

    • good part in view B
  • Output NOK

    • Faulty or damaged part, resp.
    • good part in wrong view (i.e. in different view than the taught ones)


Where do the „Bad“ parts go?

  • Pneumatic valves or miniature relays can be directly activated

  • Ejection by

    • Blast nozzle
    • Pneumatic cylinder
    • Magnet or
    • Downstream PLC with separate ejection control


Application example 1 - Conveyor belt with blast nozzles

  • Application with auto triggering

    • Ejection of the incorrect parts by blast nozzles
    • Conveyor belt with constant speed
    • Direct activation of the valves, without an additional PLC


Application example 2 - Workholder carousels

  • Application with external triggering

    • Ejection of the incorrect parts by a separate PLC, e.g. SIMATIC S7-200
    • Connection to the PLC via digital I/O of SIMATIC VS 110


Application example 3 - Rhein Nadel Automation infeed system

  • Vibrating conveyor container with conveyor belt

    • Ejection of faulty parts
    • Correct parts that are reversed are blown back into the container


Installation within 30 minutes!

  • Mounting of the sensor, processing unit and lighting unit according to the installation instructions

  • Start the set-up software on a Windows PC, connect the PC to the processing unit

  • Accurately adjust the sensor head and the lighting unit - with the support of the live image on the PC screen

  • Permanently fix the sensor head and the lighting unit

  • Ready for teach-in!



Teaching instead of programming

  • Teaching by showing „Good“ parts in one or two preferred views

  • Teach-in is performed

  • Up to 15 different parts are stored in non-volatile memory in the processing unit



Technical data - Processing unit and sensor head



Technical data - Lighting unit



Customer advantages (1)

  • 100% check of all parts in the production

    • Reduced machine downtime
    • Higher availability of the machines
  • Higher flexibility

    • Fast changeover of the infeed system for different batches and types


Customer advantages(2)

  • Low-priced solution

    • Low initial and running costs
    • Reduction of the mechanical and electrical expenses (no mech. baffle plates, no binary sensors)
  • No special courses, no programming needed

    • Mounting, commissioning and service with existing personnel
    • Operation by the machine personnel
