Nordson-Coherix Fully Integrated Bead Dispensing, Inspection, And Process Control Solution

Coherix, Inc., a global leader in Three-Dimensional (3D) Machine Vision, proudly announces its Predator3D bead inspection solution has been fully integrated into the Nordson Process Sentry PLC dispensing controller with Pro-Meter SPLC, ideal for automotive OEM and tier-one body structures and glass assembly. Nordson Automotive Systems Group is one of the global leaders in precision dispensing and related technologies for adhesives, industrial coatings, sealants, paints, polymers, and fluids.

With Coherix Predator3D integrated, Nordson Proess Sentry PLC dispensing controller gains the ability to inspect, report, and auto correct, while dispensing and providing instant feedback for optimum process control. Predator3D is not affected by changes of ambient lighting or part color, and therefore it can perform robust 3D vision operations even in black-on-black or gray-on-gray situations.

Comparing to traditional bead inspection technologies (such as Confirmation Laser and 2D Vision system), Process Sentry PLC 3D Vision with Predator3D embedded has absolute superior advantages (as shown in the table below).
