The LMI Gocator series of 3D profile sensors will be highlighted in a conveyor belt demonstration where various 3D components of parts will be measured and a pass/fail decision made. The Gocator is a self-contained 3D profile sensor, which uses an integral laser line projector to build a series of 3D profiles of an object moving underneath it. A comprehensive set of built in 3D measurement tools allow a wide range of measurements to be made without the need for an external computer.
Packaging inspection system
A multi-camera packaging inspection system will be used to determine print quality, read alphanumeric and barcode data and check fill-level as boxes pass underneath. Using cameras from JAI, Automation Technology and Teledyne DALSA, this will show how cameras with different interfaces (USB3 Vision and GigE Vision) and varying resolutions can be combined to meet different inspection needs.
Determine the position, pose and rotation
Vision-enabled robotic pick and place is a well established technique, but here a novel pattern matching tool, CVB Polimago is used to determine the position, pose and rotation of the items to be picked. CVB Polimago is a module of STEMMER IMAGING’s Common Vision Blox hardware-independent machine vision library. It is differentiated from other pattern matching methods by generating artificial views of the model during the training phase to simulate various positions of a component in real life.
Inspection of pharmaceutical packaging
Teledyne DALSA's new 5 megapixel Boa 2 smart camera will be shown inspecting pharmaceutical packaging. With inspections up to 80 parts/second, enhanced embedded measurement and processing software, and a variety of I/O and mounting options, the versatile Boa 2 can automate identification, measurement, guiding and verification requirements in a host of applications.
