Machine vision is a dynamic field: STEMMER IMAGING and our suppliers are the world´s leading manufacturers for machine vision components and solutions, introducing many brand new developments several times a year.
A new 3-CMOS area scan camera combines the accuracy of prism-based optics with the image quality provided by Sony Pregius IMX265 colour sensors. The prism separates incoming light into red, green and blue wavelengths, which are directed onto the three precisely-aligned sensors. This allows the JAI APEX AP-3200T-USB to deliver better colour fidelity and spatial precision than traditional Bayer colour cameras.
Dome light units offer excellent results in a variety of machine vision tasks. However, due to their design they have not been suitable in applications where space is at a premium. With the launch of the LFX3 series, CCS has responded to these demands by combining the qualities of dome lights with a new flat design.
Inspection is a critical component of HACCP programs in the food industry. Hyperspectral imaging now provides a powerful complementary approach for the machine vision engineer. Its ability to identify differences in the chemical composition of organic materials opens up major new possibilities for detecting impurities in food products. Most importantly, systems are now available that operate in real time, allowing them to be used on high speed production lines.
The new CVS trevistaCAM is the latest addition to the CVS trevista range of advanced industrial surface inspection systems that use the patented 2.5D ‘shape from shading’ process. The low cost CVS trevistaCAM is a ready to use, completely self-contained 4 Mpixel smart camera system which has applications in automotive, print & packaging, test and measurement and the pharmaceutical Industry.
The new Wave series of dual-band line scan cameras from JAI operate in the Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR) region of the spectrum. The WA-1000D-CL simultaneously acquires and precisely aligns images from SWIR light between 900 and 1400 nm on one sensor and from 1400 nm to 1700 nm on the second sensor, even when objects are moving at high speeds. This has the potential to enhance current machine vision systems by revealing information that can’t be seen when using just the visible and/or the near infrared light spectrum.
Teledyne DALSA’s new Linea 16k CLHS line scan camera is the first in the Linea range to utilise the high data transmission CLHS interface. 2 GByte/sec data throughput using a single CX4 cable with long transmission distances and cable flexibility, and an outstanding line rate up to 71 kHz, allow even higher inspection throughput to be achieved. Application areas include pharmaceutical labels and print inspection and flat panel display, printed circuit board and electronic component inspection.
With the addition of the first colour TDI (Time Delay Integration) line scan cameras for machine vision from Teledyne DALSA, STEMMER IMAGING continues to offer the widest range of line scan technology. This enables us to work in partnership with customers to provide successful line scan solutions in the most challenging imaging projects.
Witten-based OCS GmbH is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of production-integrated film inspection systems. Up to ten cameras operate side by side in scalable systems enabling production speeds of up to 1,200 metres per minute. Machine vision components from STEMMER IMAGING make up the optical solution.
