The Simple Vision Sensor from SICK that’s as Smart as a Camera

04 December 2013

SICK has developed a new vision sensor with dimension verification, position detection and intelligent measurement capability that challenges 2D smart camera performance.

The Inspector PIM60 will support a wide range of high-speed quality inspection, picking and assembly applications while still offering the ease-of-use and attractive price of a vision sensor.

SICK expects the Inspector PIM60’s comprehensive capability for high-speed inspection to be of great interest to machine builders and systems integrators, as well as customers in consumer goods manufacture and packaging operations.

“With the Inspector PIM60, Sick has narrowed the gap in functionality between a smart camera and a vision sensor, but not the price,” says David Hannaby, SICK (UK) Product Manager, Imaging and Measurement. “The existing Inspector tools do a great job for presence/absence or feature inspection. Now with the new measurement tools we can also support automatic rejection of out of specification products and provide feedback to improve the efficiency of a process.”

The SICK Inspector PIM60 provides integral quality inspection with a capability to measure diameters, angles and variable distances.  Its new, versatile measuring tools make it possible to verify dimensions and assess product acceptability, with pass or fail verification.

The sophisticated calibration capability of the SICK Inspector PIM60 enables reliable inspection of moving or rotating parts, even when the sensor is tilted or using wide angle lenses.  The results calibration function also makes it possible to output measured values as millimeters, so that they can be used directly for robot or gripper control.

The SICK Inspector PIM60’s cost-effective integral web server enables operators to monitor production processes simply with an easy-to-use on-screen interface that can be customised to meet customers’ graphic and layout requirements, facilitating visualised data interpretation.

As easy to set up and configure out-of-the-box as any high performance sensor, the Inspector PIM60 offers broad connectivity enabling simple or complex data to be output over multiple platforms and protocols. The results can be output via Ethernet/IP or TCP/IP.
