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.
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.
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.
CCS has introduced the TH2-CR series of flat light units with a camera window which provide light from the same axis as the camera. The wide emitting surface combines wide-field imaging with highly uniform illumination, making these new lights an attractive alternative to coaxial and dome lights.
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.
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.
Every day the lives of millions of people depend on intact tyres on cars and airplanes. The Carl Zeiss Optotechnik tyre inspection systems equipped with STEMMER IMAGING’s state-of-the-art machine vision components provide the maximum possible safety in this domain.
