    Default Machine Vision Alignment

    Hello everyone,

    We have 5 Haas VF2 mills that we use to cut glass (core, chamfer, saw, mill). I have a jury-rigged machine vision system in which the operator finds crosshairs that are laser engraved on the glass to align the part and set his XY home. Has anyone automated their alignment process with a real machine vision system? Ours is currently very time consuming, and I'm looking to speed up the process significantly. Thanks for any help.

    Nick

    Do you have spindle probes? You could look at making a setting fixture with a boss or bore in it to probe, that locates at one corner on the edge of the glass if possible. Double sided tape or vacuum cups to hold it in place, then probe. No clue about vision systems. For that you would want to ask on practical machinist .com in the automation category.
