Dome light units offer excellent results in a variety of machine vision tasks. However, due to their design they have not been suitable in applications where space is at a premium. With the launch of the LFX3 series, CCS has responded to these demands by combining the qualities of dome lights with a new flat design.
Inspection is a critical component of HACCP programs in the food industry. Hyperspectral imaging now provides a powerful complementary approach for the machine vision engineer. Its ability to identify differences in the chemical composition of organic materials opens up major new possibilities for detecting impurities in food products. Most importantly, systems are now available that operate in real time, allowing them to be used on high speed production lines.
The new CVS trevistaCAM is the latest addition to the CVS trevista range of advanced industrial surface inspection systems that use the patented 2.5D ‘shape from shading’ process. The low cost CVS trevistaCAM is a ready to use, completely self-contained 4 Mpixel smart camera system which has applications in automotive, print & packaging, test and measurement and the pharmaceutical Industry.
Sophisticated technology for the pharmaceutical industry and the construction of machines in this sector are among the core competences of Harro Höfliger. Machine vision systems ensure reliable quality inspections at several points in a new plant for the packaging of painkillers.
Witten-based OCS GmbH is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of production-integrated film inspection systems. Up to ten cameras operate side by side in scalable systems enabling production speeds of up to 1,200 metres per minute. Machine vision components from STEMMER IMAGING make up the optical solution.
Scanware Electronic inspects tablets in blister packs after sealing with the aid of powerful machine vision systems. One of these, the Lynx Spectra HR, developed in close cooperation with STEMMER IMAGING and utilising up to six watercooled 3CCD colour cameras from JAI, is an ideal system structure for use in a tight space.
