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.
The new Wave series of dual-band line scan cameras from JAI operate in the Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR) region of the spectrum. The WA-1000D-CL simultaneously acquires and precisely aligns images from SWIR light between 900 and 1400 nm on one sensor and from 1400 nm to 1700 nm on the second sensor, even when objects are moving at high speeds. This has the potential to enhance current machine vision systems by revealing information that can’t be seen when using just the visible and/or the near infrared light spectrum.
