Motion Sensors Implements Optical Control Component Counter


Reading time ( words)

Motion Sensors, Inc. (MSI) has successfully installed an OC-SCAN CCX.3 automated X-ray component counter from Optical Control. The CCX.3 is directly connected with their component storage tower and ERP system, and can now precisely manage their inventory with incredible time savings and accuracy.

MSI’s complete integration sytem allows them to locate material immediately and have the confidence that counts will be correct which ultimately keeps lines running. This is done with ease with a simple push of button because of the intelligent, simple and fast CCX.3

The CCX X-ray is a true plug-and-play system that can X-ray ANY size reel in the same cycle time regardless of type of component, or how full or empty it is. High speed combined with the best accuracy, it is capable of providing an ROI faster than any other machine on the market. The highlight of the CCX is that there are no libraries required or need for customer input to get started: simply plug in the machine and start counting.

Marcy Pritchard, president of MSI stated: “This machine has literally changed our lives! Our count rate has increased by 600% or more. Our counts are now accurate and we are always confident when we setup our line.. Our new counter interfaces directly with our storage tower to update real-time quantities, so we have reliable inventory counts available at all times.”

Motion Sensors’ original sensors were developed to meet the extreme temperature cycling, high shock and vibration demanded by applications in the turbine flowmetering industry. Over the years, the company’s product line and expertise has significantly expanded to include a wide range of speed sensing technologies and industry applications.

Today, MSI provides its customers with world-class engineering and manufacturing capabilities across a variety of industries, including aerospace, rail, military and power. The company develops partnerships with its customers, priding itself on the ability to anticipate and adapt to customer requirements quickly and efficiently. The new CCX X-ray will enable MSI to meet manufacturing demands even faster.
