HALCON 22.05 provides a wide range of new and improved machine vision features.
Global Context Anomaly Detection
The next evolution of HALCON’s Anomaly Detection technology is a solution for even the most complex anomaly detection applications. The Global Context Anomaly Detection is now able to detect unknown anomalies in a global context, check the completeness and detect defects. The development of quality inspection for unknown anomalies is fast. It is idealy suited for quality control and more.
Training for Deep OCR
HALCON`s Deep OCR enables users to efficiently solve text reading applications in a multitude of use cases. With HALCON 22.05, this technology is extended by training functionality, enabling application-specific training. It retrains Deep OCR to your specific application. Furthermore, this advanced OCR technology can now read uncommon printing styles and has improved readability in bad lighting conditions and contrast. Users get better results with less parameter tuning and solve even the most complex OCR tasks.
Enhanced ECC200 Print Quality Inspection
The print quality inspection for ECC200 codes has been further improved to more effectively help solve code reading/printing applications. It is now up to 150% faster. The grid determination module is now more robust and the usability has been improved by introducing additional procedures. This tool can be used in the pharmaceutical industry or in other code printing industries.
Notable Quality-of-Life Improvements
High number of smaller improvements complete HALCON 22.05, including new operators e.g. for smoothing with arbitrarily shaped regions, a new histogram equalization operator and speedups. In addition, Generic Shape Matching is now included into HDevelop’s Matching Assistant.
