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.
The new Genie Nano-5G GigE Vision cameras from Teledyne DALSA provide exceptional data transfer capabilities using industry-standard Ethernet technology at an extremely attractive price point. With data transfer rates in excess of 5 Gb/s possible over cable lengths up to 100 metres, and a choice of high performance Sony sensors, these new cameras open up a host of new applications in a wide range of industries.
The LightBridge 2 ACL is the latest stand-alone CameraLink frame grabber from Silicon Software. This compact unit can readily be deployed on the factory floor to acquire and pre-process images. These can then be transferred over distances up to 60 metres to a remote PC for analysis.
The new Bonito PRO camera family from Allied Vision achieves 25 Gigabits per second with quad CXP-6 CoaXPress for high-speed, high bandwidth applications. These include automated optical Inspection, flat panel display inspection, printing inspection, 2D/3D surface inspection, and aerial surveillance.
The Ricoh SC-10 camera inspection system is designed to both provide assembly instructions to operators and verify each step has been completed correctly. The simple, self-contained camera system is having a major impact in many different manufacturing environments in Japan is now available in Europe exclusively from STEMMER IMAGING.
Ruggedised versions of the MPW2 series of C-mount 5 Mpixel ultra-low distortion machine vision lenses have been introduced by Computar. The new MPW2-R Series of lenses is designed specifically to withstand strong shocks, vibrations and huge variations in temperatures in demanding factory automation environments.
The new Dimension range of lenses from Zeiss has been designed for precise high-end applications, where distortion, vignetting and colouring issues must be minimised. Developed specifically for C-mount cameras, these new lenses provide high contrast, razor-sharp images, even at maximum aperture. They are virtually distortion-free across the entire area of sensors up to 4/3” and can resolve pixel sizes down to 2 μm.
A new, wide angle lens with a focal length of 25 mm has been added to the Zeiss Interlock range of compact, lightweight lenses. These are designed for use with large format area and line scan cameras. The full metal housing, locking screws for focus and aperture and their resilience to dust, water and vibration make these lenses ideally suited to use in very harsh industrial environments.
CVB 2018 brings a number of new developments for the CVB Image Manager and CVB Foundation Package components of Common Vision Blox, STEMMER IMAGING’s hardware-independent machine vision development software. In particular there is enhanced 3D functionality and increased Linux support.
Compact industrial vision systems provide a powerful embedded vision solution for high-speed inspection of multiple features of a part or assembly. A rugged industrial controller acquires, processes and analyses images from multiple cameras for applications such as final inspection of large assemblies. Designed specifically for use on the factory floor, the robust systems run embedded versions of PC machine vision software. This is a cost effective alternative approach to deploying standard PC solutions in harsh industrial environments.
The JAI Apex Series of 3CMOS prism-based colour area scan cameras has been expanded with 5 new models. The range now features 3.2 Mpixel and 1.6 Mpixel versions, with PMCL, USB3 Vision, and GigE Vision interfaces available in each resolution.
