X-Ray Parts Counting | 4 October, 2018

Anyone out there have experience with X-ray parts counting ?

We are doing an evaluation and I was wondering what levels of accuracy others are experiencing.

Thanks in advance

Hi Senior,

Which ones are you looking at? I've had a brief sniff at Scienscope, Creative Electron, and Visiconsult, but it is always something that feels like a nice to have and not a must have so never makes it in the budget.

I have worked with all 3.

What do you think about the ScienScope and Visiconsult ?

Didn't feel comfortable counting 4 reels at once on the Scienscope, would rather 1 reel, 1 label for our processes.

The Visiconsult looks good and has a fast cycle time, with one in one out. The main issue here is that due to the weakness of £GBP against $USD & EUR it is more expensive than holding additional reels and adding attrition. Hence being on the nice to have list, and not the must have.

VJE , Optical Control , Visiconsult have been field proven and all three companies give the best support.

VJE is affordable and one of the first in the market.
