CQV in Production

CQV three main application areas are Classification, Measuring and Robot Guiding. These areas can be used individually or in combination of two or more areas depending on the application. Classification is used for different quality measures to either give an ok or not ok for your product or to grade the quality for the product. Example applications are batch number verification, detecting defects in products or materials etc.Measuring is used for checking e.g. a product’s dimensions or temperature. The measure data can be used to show graphical trends based on time or sample. CQV can be used for Robot Guiding, i.e. a robot’s movement can be controlled by CQV. An example application is Bin-picking, where CQV is detecting unsorted products in a box or pallet and then guides a robot to a correct picking position..

User Interface

Consat Quidance Vision is easy to learn, use and understand. The user interface is intuitive and can be customized based on customer-specific requirements.

The whole system is monitored through a well laid out screen which shows all relevant information required to oversee and manage the process. Real-time key metrics are also shown in a number of graphs, which allow users to get a quick overview of the process.

When production changes to manufacture new products or use different machines, the operator switches easily to a new blueprint. This eliminates unnecessary stops or manual configurations.

The operator always has complete control over possible issues in the production process and can react quickly if issues occur.

System overview

CQV is designed to meet today’s demands on connectivity. It allows connection to different user interfaces; both directly and to mobile devices, to allow connectivity for different users with different demands on the interface. There is also possibility to connect CQV to an ERP system or the Cloud for exchanging information such as orders and data.

The CQV system runs on a computer to which the sensors are connected that are monitoring the process. It also includes a local data storage where the collected raw data is stored; ready for processing or to be sent to the cloud for further analysis. CQV can also interact with a control system or a robot to enable that the routing of a product can be controlled based on the outcome from the process parameters that are monitored by CQV.

Optimized Board Scanning by CQV

Do you want to increase your production efficiency and be able to monitor the production process in real-time? If this is the case, Optimized Board Scanning (OBS) by Consat Quidance Vision (CQV) is the answer to your needs. The system enables a continuous and consistent monitoring of the production in real-time. This allows faster actions to be taken to maximize your production efficiency. Information from the OBS by CQV system will be accessible to all levels of a company and adapted so that relevant information is displayed to the user. The collected data is stored to enable analyzes of how the process can be optimized.

• Increases the yield
• Enables higher production capacity
• Ensures constant grading and quality according to EN-14081
• Reliable operation hour after hour, day after day, year after year…

Welcome to discuss how OBS by CQV can help you to increase your production efficiency today!

OBS by CQV is designed to meet today’s demands on connectivity. It allows connection to different user interfaces; both directly and to mobile devices, to allow connectivity for different users with different demands on the interface. There is also possible to connect OBS by CQV to an ERP system or to the cloud for exchanging information such as orders and data. The OBS by CQV system runs on a computer to which the laser sensors are connected that are measuring the boards’ dimensions and defects. It also includes a local data storage where the collected raw data is stored; ready for further simulations to optimize the yield or to be sent to the cloud for further analysis. OBS by CQV is ready to communicate with a control system to enable that the board is trimmed according to the result of the grading and then sorted.

The laser scanners are measuring width, thickness and length of each board and compares it with pre-determined quality grades. OBS by CQV optimizes the yield of each board and the output result is then sent to the trim saw. After the board is trimmed, the board is automatically drop sorted into the correct bin. OBS by CQV can be installed in the Green mill, Dry mill and/or Planer mill. Both spruce and pine, as well as other species, are sorted in the system. The boards are transported in a transversal direction through the OBS by CQV system.

OBS by CQV measures the board with multi-point profile 3D scanners that places several laser profiles along the board. Then the geometry of the board is calculated. Based on geometry, OBS by CQV can detect five different defects: wane, bow, cup, twist, and spring. Based on detected defects, the yield is optimized for selected grades and their price lists. OBS by CQV also measures thickness, width, and length. The system can also include measured values from external measuring instruments (eg moisture, strength grading, and operator) and let them become part of the optimization decision.

Our customers demand high quality and on-time delivery.

There are requirements for transparency throughout the design and development process, and we provide final reports of testing and implementation.

We are measured not only by our ability to deliver a quality product, but also by how we provide assurance throughout the development process.

Our objective is to not only meet, but to exceed customer expectations and requirements. For this purpose we have an established agile-based quality assurance process for all in-house development.

We continuously monitor quality and regularly revise our methods and processes to ensure consistent quality.

For industrial projects, we have our own concept workshops in order to do development testing, make adjustments and perform the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) before delivery to the customer.

Our customers demand high quality and on-time delivery.

It is very valuable to be able to try new machine concepts through prototypes. We have developed a close relationship with manufacturers and installers, who are able to assist with the testing of prototypes in operational machines and products.

Concept Workshops

We have a concept workshop at our headquarters in Partille, Sweden, where we test complete production lines and specialty machines.

At our office in Stockholm, we have a concept workshop for mounting and testing of tools and fixtures.

Having direct access to concept workshops at our development centers enables shorter development lead-times and better solutions.

3D Printer

When developing a product, there is usually a need for quick verification of the design.

Consat has acquired a machine for development of prototypes using the FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) technique for models in ABS-plastic. The machine is intended to be used as a service in our projects and for our customers. The max size of the models developed is 203x203x305mm. In addition to this machine, we have our own workshop for assembly and basic machining such as turning and milling.

Electronics Lab

For efficient development, it is important to have access to a testing environment. This is why we have invested in our own electrostatic discharge (ESD) protected laboratory with measuring and soldering equipment.
