Although both visual counting machines and photoelectric counting machines can be used to count and pack similar items, their working principles, scope of use and differences are different, resulting in differences in their prices. details as follows:
The working principle of the visual counting machine:
The visual counting machine takes pictures through the camera, and then uses computer image processing technology to process and analyze the pictures to identify the position and quantity of each item, so as to achieve the purpose of counting.
Range of use:
The visual counting machine is suitable for counting items with complex shapes, such as fruits, vegetables, candies, medicines, etc. Its calculation accuracy is high, and it can identify items of various colors and shapes, and is suitable for production environments with multiple varieties and small batches.
Compared with the photoelectric counting machine, the visual counting machine has the following characteristics:
- Higher calculation accuracy to accommodate items of various colors and shapes.
- It can provide traceability and integrated management functions to facilitate production management.
- The price is relatively high.
The working principle of photoelectric counting machine:
The photoelectric counting machine uses the photoelectric sensor to detect the change of the photoelectric signal flowing through the material channel through the principle of reflection or transmission, and uses the relevant circuit to convert the photoelectric signal into an electronic signal, and finally counts the quantity and speed of the material flow, and obtains the number of items.
Range of use:
The photoelectric counting machine is suitable for counting items with regular shapes and uniform sizes, such as electronic components, coins, hardware, etc. Its speed is fast and the output is stable, which is suitable for the production environment of large batches and single varieties.
Compared with the visual counting machine, the photoelectric counting machine has the following characteristics:
- Can accommodate items of regular shape and uniform size.
- Simple operation and fast speed, suitable for high-speed production lines.
- The price is relatively low.
To sum up, the visual counting machine and the photoelectric counting machine have different working principles, scope of use and characteristics, resulting in different prices. Consumers can choose a suitable counting machine according to their needs.
