Industrial Manufacturing with PTZOptics Cameras
PTZOptics cameras are a versatile solution for industrial manufacturers looking for an innovative way to prevent errors. With computer vision technology––artificial intelligence that trains computers to interpret and understand the visual world––users can improve efficiency and detect defects on production lines. Manufacturers need to be able to see what’s going on in order to keep things running safely and smoothly, and with computer vision technology, this is easier than ever. PTZOptics cameras allow you to zoom into production lines without obscuring complex machinery or existing workspaces. The cameras can be mounted from a variety of convenient locations such as ceilings, I-Beams, and other structures, allowing a clear view of everything that’s happening on the line.
Case Study: Adient, Inc
The new Dual Lock systems are considered a “mid-cycle” product change by Toyota and human operators were not reliably detecting manufacturing defects and missing components. Adient Inc. tested several artificial intelligence-powered detection systems and concluded that Detect-It Software’s Net Builder and Net Runner AI tools for manufacturing were the ideal solution. Each Dual Lock system can require up to 20 area checkpoints to be monitored by Detect-It. Instead of using a slate of static cameras moving over each part, Detect-IT designed its system to use 2 PTZOptics pan, tilt, and zoom (PTZ) cameras to scan each part from overhead.
The PTZOptics 20X-SDI cameras were set up with 20 PTZ preset locations which are recalled in sequence for multiple different components being built. For each part the Detect-IT system will instruct the camera to move quickly, scanning over 20 areas in less than 30 seconds. PTZOptics cameras feature preset recall accuracy of 0.1° which keeps the system moving quickly and efficiently.
Each Over Head System (OHS), is set up with two PTZOptics 20X-SDI-G2-WH cameras mounted to metal trussing and connected to Detect-It’s system via ethernet cabling. Three systems have been set up in the facility to perform similar but unique processes to greatly improve the manufacturing process and reduce and almost eliminate bad parts from being produced.
