The Boa Spot IDE integrated vision sensor from Teledyne DALSA is a low cost 1D/2D code reader with additional OCR and verification tools, all at the price point of a traditional code reader. The versatile high-speed code reading algorithm not only increases reading speeds by a factor of up to 10, but offers enhanced capabilities for more difficult direct part marking applications.
Optics and illumination play a critical role in optimising the imaging conditions for machine vision measurement. Even the seemingly simple act of adjusting the iris (aperture) of a lens affects several parameters in the imaging system. There are a number of ways of adjusting the iris, but the Precise-iris (or P-iris) method offers significant benefits.
High resolution and high frame rate cameras produce huge quantities of image data. The new RIC10 series of cameras from VRMagic utilise 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) with GigE Vision support. This provides one of the highest data transfer rates available for industrial vision - up to 1.25GB/s over distances up to 100 metres. With an impressive choice of high resolution and high frame rate sensors, the RIC10 Series can be used in a huge range of demanding industrial applications with minimum disruption to existing factory networks.
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.
A machine vision system mounted onto a grapple loader and a Smart Vision Lights outdoor illumination enable reliable and efficient measurements of tree trunks before they are further processed into boards.
The Cognex high resolution Vision system In-Sight 5605 identifies codes on transport trays at Continental in Frankfurt. What has been done by manual scanning before, is now carried out automatically without any manual effort at all. The STEMMER IMAGING vision experts actively support Continental with the system implementation.
