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.
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.
The new range of IRSX industrial IR cameras from Automation Technology are designed to facilitate the use of thermal imaging in Industry 4.0 applications. Completely self-contained with embedded data processing, these compact, rugged cameras feature a multitude of interface protocols for direct communication with automation and control equipment. These include OPC-UA, a platform-independent, open standard for machine-to-machine communication which is ideally suited for Industry 4.0.
With the new bonNDTinspect® system, Automation W+R enables the reliable assessment of surfaces that are to be bonded, painted or otherwise treated in subsequent process steps. The system is based on a patent held by Fraunhofer IFAM and machine vision components from STEMMER IMAGING.
Industrial vision plays an important role in reading unique identifiers in the form of 1D or 2D codes, alphanumerics or even braille for tracking and tracing applications in industries as diverse as aerospace, automotive, healthcare and pharmaceutical. Specialist vision systems integrators are frequently used to design systems for complex code reading tasks requiring extremely precise triggering and encoding to the manufacturing process. The choice of image processing software is important in complex imaging environments.
Up to 600 metal or injection-moulded components such as screws, disks or other mass products in fastener technology, mainly employed in the automobile and aerospace industries, are inspected and sorted in an inspection plant manufactured by GEFRA GmbH in Friedewald. The intelligent modular system provides 360° inspection with accuracy to the 100th mm.
