Machine vision guarantees quality in the automotive industry

Exact and consistent fabrication is crucial for quality and safety in automotive production and engineering. Manufacturers and component suppliers rely on leading-​edge vision technology to validate complex assembly processes and inspections.

However, image processing systems provide even after the production of vehicle parts and complete vehicles throughout their life cycle in numerous other applications for security or comfort.

Genie Nano CoaXPress cameras built for speed

28/11/2019

Offering 16 or 25 MPixel resolution monochrome or enhanced NIR CMOS sensors, the new Genie Nano-CXP cameras from Teledyne DALSA can deliver 80 fps at 25 Mpixel resolution.

The small form factor, robust build quality and wide operating temperatures are combined with an exceptional feature set at a highly competitive price point. They have been designed to work synergistically with the half-length Xtium-CXP frame grabber to minimise CPU usage and improve processing times.

Four stages of machine vision in industry

08/11/2019

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.

Ricoh high-performance 5 Megapixel lens range extended

14/03/2019

Ricoh has added the new FL-CC-MX series to its existing range of lenses for 2/3” 5 megapixel cameras. These high-performance lenses with 12 and 16mm focal length versions provide high resolution, high contrast imaging with low distortion across the entire sensor, ensuring accurate measurements at the periphery of the image as well as at the centre.

Integrating vision into a manual assembly process

24/10/2019

Clear Vision Systems (CVS), manufactured by Kautex Textron CVS Ltd are designed to keep vehicle headlamps or the cameras and sensors used in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems clean from dirt, dust, frost, snow, and pollution. They are manufactured at Kautex plants in the UK, USA, China and the Czech Republic. Specialist water tubing assemblies used in these systems are constructed completely by hand.

Direct interfacing of smart 3D vision system with robots

28/08/2019

The use of small to medium-sized collaborative robots for factory automation applications is growing at a rapid rate. Many of these applications are pick-and-place, so the robots require machine vision to visualize the scene, process information to make control decisions and execute precision-based mechanical movements.

Automotive PCB assembly enhanced

24/01/2019

A new approach to manual PCB assembly verification has helped one manufacturer significantly improve the quality of boards it manufactures for use in car audio devices. A self-contained camera system ensures that almost 50 components are correctly assembled before the boards move to the next stage.
