- Detection details
- Sensors are used in the spark plug inspection process to detect whether the marking used to identify the products is present, helping to eliminate mistakes.
Key installation points
Applications with round, metal targets are difficult for sensors due to issues with glare and surface finish. However, these sorts of applications can be performed easily with the IV Series. By using the Outline Tool, stable detection is achieved even if there are differences in surface condition from one part to the next. Furthermore, the OK/NG image history can be saved together with the detection date and time.
