QuickSweeper is a control and sorting device for small parts that enables the fast geometric measuring of bulk materials in three dimensions. The special in-feed concept and an upstream hopper system make it possible to ensure a trouble-free 3-shift operation.

Thanks to simple re-fitting and handling by entering target values or teach-in of a “good” part, even small lot sizes can be made profitable. To this end, up to five high-resolution cameras serve as sensors

QuickSweeper is suitable for use as a stand-alone unit or for integration into manufacturing lines. The parts that can be measured are all parts that are supplied in a stable position, including stampings, bent components, forming parts and injection molded parts, e.g. screw nuts, discs, springs, seals etc. with a maximum size (L x W x H) of 45 mm x 45 mm x 25 mm (expandable). The average capacity amounts to 28,800 inspected parts per hour, the maximum capacity amounts to 54,000 parts per hour. The typical measurement accuracy reaches 3/100 mm (part-specific 1/100 mm).

Standard control criteria

Measurements of:

  • Outside diameter
  • Inside diameter
  • Across-flats dimension
  • Width across corners
  • Centricity
  • Height
  • Outside contour control
  • Inside contour control
  • Surface control for scratches and coating errors
  • Sorting out foreign parts
  • Variable contour comparison
  • Thread control

Additional functions

  • Pre-selection counter for good-parts and control signal for packaging equipment
  • Pre-selection counter “Series Error” with control for signal lamp or horn
  • Automatic function control for compressed air, lighting and sensoric systems
  • Password protection for all adjustable parameters
  • Automatic shut-down when no more parts arrive or when the lot size has been reached
  • Automatic request for maintenance or calibration
  • Amount and error statistics for the individual control criteria in display, print-out or transfer to statistics computer All control criteria, statistics and other specifications can be adjusted to customer or part-specific requirements.
