the conveyor may stop under the camera to allow the position of the part to be determined, or if the cycle time is sufficient, it is possible to pick a component without stopping the conveyor using a control scheme that tracks the moving component through the vision software, typically by fitting an encoder to the conveyor, and using this .
a programmable logic controller plc or programmable controller is an industrial digital computer which has been ruggedized and adapted for the control of manufacturing processes, such as assembly lines, or robotic devices, or any activity that requires high reliability, ease of programming and process fault diagnosis.
: 9–11 standard dust control methods such as enclosures for conveyor systems or using a sealed system for bag filling are effective at reducing respirable dust concentrations.: 16–17. non-ventilation engineering controls can also include devices developed for the pharmaceutical industry, including isolation containment systems.

incremental encoders are commonly used to measure the speed of mechanical systems. this may be done for monitoring purposes or to provide feedback for motion control, or both. widespread applications of this include speed control of radar antenna rotation and material conveyors, and motion control in robotics, cmm and cnc machines.
with a check weigher programmed as a zone checkweigher, the data collection over the networks, as well as local statistics, can indicate the need to check the settings on the upstream equipment to better control flow into the packaging. in some cases the dynamic scale sends a signal to a filler, for instance, in real-time, controlling the .
a chain conveyor is a type of conveyor system for moving material through production lines. chain conveyors utilize a powered continuous chain arrangement, carrying a series of single pendants. the chain arrangement is driven by a motor, and the material suspended on the pendants are conveyed. chain conveyors are used for moving products down .
