NI Machine Vision Provides a Cost-Effective Plastic Sorting System

This is a schematic drawing of the automated sorting system.

"To perform plastic sorting at lower cost, we selected NI hardware and software tools to ensure quick testing, efficiency, and robustness of the solution. "

- Sebastien Parent, Averna Technologies, Inc.

The Challenge:
Developing an automated sorting system for clear transparent PETE plastic with machine vision technology – instead of the standard infrared spectrometry or x-ray equipment –performed at a fast rate of 40 parts per second.

The Solution:
Combining a special lighting technique, a specific camera acquisition mode, the processing of image in color space, and a well synchronized rejection device.
