Machine vision is a well-established technique across a host of industries, improving quality and efficiency in the manufacturing and processing sectors. Its ability to make inspections reliably and at speed 24/7 makes it an invaluable enabling technology in quality control. Technological advances in machine vision continue to be made rapidly, opening up more and more possibilities.
Teledyne DALSA’s new Piranha4 8k trilinear colour camera offers improved colour imaging at a lower cost using Teledyne e2v’s latest CMOS 8k trilinear sensor.
STEMMER IMAGING AG has signed an agreement with 3D machine vision camera company Zivid for the distribution of its market-leading Zivid One+ cameras and software throughout Europe. Providing human-like vision capabilities, the cameras meet the demands of a wide range of high performance robotics and industrial automation systems.
Pharmaceutical companies achieve significant cost savings by using traceability and aggregation solutions. Moreover, they enable compliance with regulations for proof of origin and traceability of prescription drugs. A large part of these benefits result from improvements in process and supply chain efficiency. The Smart Manual Aggregation Table (SMAT) system from ISW, Industrielle Sensorsysteme Wichmann GmbH, facilitates the reliable packaging of pharmaceutical products by using machine vision from STEMMER IMAGING.
Aluminium trays are used worldwide in a wide range of shapes for packaging food. Novelis Deutschland GmbH, with the help of the system integrator, Industrielle Sensorsysteme Wichmann GmbH (ISW), and based on machine vision components from STEMMER IMAGING, has produced a two-stage inspection system to check the quality of the trays.
Systems with an extremely high performance are required in order to inspect labels or other printed web goods and detect faults with 100% reliability at speeds of up to 350 metres per minute. AB Graphic produces such machines and in doing so uses imaging components from STEMMER IMAGING.
