PLC-LabVIEW Industrial Communication

Posted in Allen Bradley PLC Programming, Consumer Goods, Data Analysis, Data Mining, and Reporting, Food and Beverage, LabVIEW Programming, LabVIEW Programming for Real-Time and FPGA, LabVIEW Vision Application Development, Manufacturing Automation and Intelligence, PLC Programming, Siemens S7 PLC Programming, Test and Measurement, Test and Measurement Automation, Vision Inspection

DMC has extensive experience connecting PLCs to LabVIEW on Windows and Real-Time targets. PLC-controlled assembly lines often require testing for quality. Many applications have the need to incorporate high-speed DAQ and complicated processing into end-of-line (EOL) testers. Because PLCs are ill-equipped to handle large arrays of data or run complex algorithms, it is common to augment a PLC-controlled operation with a more powerful and intelligent DAQ controller. This is also a great opportunity...

3D Coplanarity Multi-Inspection with LabVIEW

Posted in Custom Software and Hardware Development, LabVIEW Programming, LabVIEW Vision Application Development, Manufacturing Automation and Intelligence, Test and Measurement, Test and Measurement Automation, Vision Inspection

DMC developed a custom LabVIEW application for conducting coplanarity analysis inspections on the pins of electrical connectors. A Keyence LJ-V7000 laser sensor was controlled through the LabVIEW program to acquire a 3D image for analysis. The application was configurable for an arbitrary number of coplanarity-based inspections as well as being easily programmable for analyzing different part types with varying feature sets.

AB RSLogix to Siemens S7 Conversion

Posted in Food and Beverage, HMI and SCADA Systems, Manufacturing Automation and Intelligence, Motion Control Engineering and Servo Systems, PLC Programming, Siemens S7 PLC Programming, Siemens WinCC and WinCC Flexible Programming, Vision Inspection

DMC developed the PLC and HMI program for a high-throughput automated valve application machine. The machine stamped one-way air valves onto the packaging material in order to ensure coffee placed in the bag would remain fresh as long as possible. The system included interfaces to multiple outside systems including several smart camera vision check stations, a precision servo stamping mechanism, and another manufacturer’s downstream production lines

3D Vision Inspection with LabVIEW

Posted in Aerospace, LabVIEW Programming, LabVIEW Vision Application Development, Manufacturing Automation and Intelligence, Test and Measurement, Test and Measurement Automation, Vision Inspection

DMC's client has a large aerospace component with chemically etched 3D geometry on the surface.  Due to the nature of the etching process and the tolerances required, the part must be inspected to ensure that all tolerances are met.  DMC created a 3D inspection that the customer has been able to integrate into their existing CNC based positioning system.  By using a 3D vision inspection for a part that contains thousands of inspection points the client is able to dramatically improve...
