Compared to human beings who are able to assess complex and non-structured environment much better where quality is concerned, the machine vision is, however, superior in respect of speed, accuracy and reproducibility when assessing structured scenarios.
A machine vision system in a production line, for instance, is able to check hundreds or even thousands of parts per second. Additionally, a correct resolution and optics will be able to recognise details that are already invisible to the human eye.
3D-cameras can scan different surfaces accurately. Even in the case of randomly placed parts the 3D Vision is able to calculate their exact orientations and positions. With this information, robotics are able to dynamically plan paths and grip efficiently.
Our machine vision systems measure objects and monitor processes. In addition to distances, diameters and angles, the measuring result can also be, for example, a colour distance (ΔE from LAB colour space).
Within regulated industries, for instance the automotive industry, traceability is of central importance. Improving processes by using traceability systems can also reduce standstill times and minimise product liability risks in other manufacturing companies.
Sophisticated liquid lenses offer new methods of implementation. Even where space is limited,
different component heights can be focussed on with just one camera.
