The optical inspection feature is able to identify the position offsets and corrects them automatically. It also recognises deformed pins and reject them from the system. If there is a production order change the system adjusts the pins and sets them according to the new program. The system captures the product and displays a clear image of it. User can simply define positions of each support pin, the allowed position deviation can also be set. As soon as all positions are defined, the system loads the pins from the magazine and places them onto the print table. The integrated vision system verifies the positions. In case it detects a deviation, APS automatically repositions the pin. Frequent verification cycles ensure fail-free operation. When the job is finished or a new job is loaded, APS automatically removes all pins from the table and stores them in the magazine.
