PINPOINT AND RESOLVE ISSUES FAST ON HIGH SPEED MANUFACTURING LINES

When production stops on high-speed lines, every minute of downtime can impact a company’s bottom line. Pinpointing the source of a line failure quickly is critical.

IVC’s high-speed video monitoring system captures video of high-speed processes and allows frame-by-frame video playback of events to help operations identify and resolve issues fast.

A COMPLETE SOLUTION FOR HIGH SPEED VIDEO MONITORING

Comprised of IVC’s high-speed vision camera and IVC’s Longwatch video management software platform, the solution gives operators a more complete picture of what’s happening on a production line while improving operator visibility into critical processes.

High Speed Vision Camera – HS-3430-1

  • Sony IMX287 CMOS processor: Delivers excellent picture quality at up to 250 frames per second
  • Compact design: suitable for monitoring in tight industrial spaces
  • Ideal for harsh industrial environments and all-weather applications

Longwatch Video Historian

IVC’s Longwatch Video Historian software automatically links event and historical process data to recorded video, delivering several key benefits:

  • Sync downtime events with recorded video: Operators can track video based on different process control events or tags directly related to high-speed video images.
  • Frame-by-frame video playback options: Supports super slow-motion and frame-by-frame video playback.
  • Flexible alarm management: Supports industry-standard protocols, such as MODBUS and OPC.
  • Simplicity for operators: Operators can have as little or as much control over the video system as the application requires.

Articulating Mount Arm

The articulating mount arm allows optimal positioning of IVC’s high-speed vision camera to ensure close up views of manufacturing processes.

  • Heavy duty
  • Quick release
  • Dual articulating arms

LED Flood Light

LED flood light ensures manufacturing processes are well-lit when captured by IVC’s high- speed camera.

  • Ultra-bright
  • Flexible mounting options
  • Weatherproof

APPLICATION STORY

Large U.S. Food Manufacturer Turns to IVC for High Speed Video

Downtime isn’t an option.

Manufacturers in the food and beverage industry rely on high-speed machinery to deliver quality products with greater efficiency to consumers. But when something goes wrong, the downtime that results from stopping production and pinpointing the problem can adversely affect a company’s bottom line.

The Challenge

When one of the largest U.S. food manufacturers experienced machine jams on their high-speed robotic granola bar packaging line, they turned to IVC for a high-speed video solution that could help decrease downtime. Because the jams were occurring on different parts of the line, the manufacturer needed a solution that was easy to move from one area to another.

The Solution

The IVC solution includes two IVC GigE Vision cameras attached to articulating arms and IVC’s Longwatch Historian software positioned on a mobile video cart. When a downtime event occurs, the line operator moves the mobile cart to the problem area to capture high speed video footage. Using IVC’s Longwatch Historian, the operator can review a frame-by-frame playback of the event and quickly identify the root cause of the problem.
