Manufacturer for blood collection needles  

Application Success Story… ensures quality at manufacturer for blood collection needles

To satisfy stringent requirements in the medical industry, a needle manufacturer needed 100 percent inspection of critical areas in the needle manufacturing process. To ensure the final product is within tolerances, the manufacturer needed a high-speed vision system. AGR implemented multi-camera Cognex Checkpoint systems to examine and validate the entire process. Several of these highly successful systems are in use today, capable of producing millions of needles per day, with a bad part rejection rate of less than 1 percent.

AGR has consistently developed high-speed solutions for manufacturing applications exceeding 1,500 parts per minute.
