Frame by Frame Analysis and Diagnosis of a High Speed Packaging System Using Fastec InLine Network-Ready Camera Vision EquipmentAbstractHigh speed imaging is a technique used for specific motion analysis applications. This mayinclude applications in fast operating industry machinery, crash impact testing for automobilesand so on. It is when photography is conducted in a very high rate ranging from 250 frames persecond and higher. This may range up to as high as several thousand frames per seconddepending on the application and budget. For example, if a motion sequence at 600 frames persecond is captured and played back at 40 frames per second, a smooth continuous motion of thatevent can be viewed. It can be studied for improvement, tuning or solving a malfunction whichcannot be done with the naked human eye or standard video framing (approximately 25-30 fps).The mechanism uses a charge-coupled device (CCD) or a CMOS active pixel sensor forrecording the high speed imagery into DRAMs.High speed camera vision system is a vital tool in the modern industry. The industries now-a-days are known for their high speed manufacturing processes. A delayed downtime may cost acompany millions. Similarly an inaccurate operation of certain machinery parts of a packagingmachine may cost highly. Therefore, the quickest possible method to resolve a fault or eventuning is most advisable. This is where a high speed camera system comes into use. A one-second event can be stretched into ten minutes of frame by frame playback. This playback can beanalyzed for a deviation from the expected behavior. Thus a fast solution may be suggested.Availability of such a tool can greatly reduce machinery downtime in a fast moving packagingsystem.This paper will discuss the results of using high speed camera vision system in two specificindustrial applications. The first application explains how the camera was used to fix theorientation of packaged material, in this case bottles, due to inaccurate cam profile of the screwconveyor. This screw conveyer operates at very high speed, 500 bottles per minute. Due toinaccurate cam profile of the screw conveyer, 5% to 10% of bottles come out with wrongorientation. It is shown how the installation of high speed camera vision system, allowingcapturing of 1000 frames per second of the orientation process, and frame-by-frame analysis ofthe operation, guide the investigators to find a solution to the inaccuracy in the orientationprocess. The second case discusses how such camera was used to investigate the high noise inhigh speed conveyor system and verify if the shaft misalignment was contributing to the noise.
