Hyperspectral imaging opens up innovative new inspection possibilities for machine vision users. The near infrared absorption behaviour of organic objects can provide information on their chemical structure. Based on an intuitive, configurable data processing software platform from Perception Park that makes the scientific methods of hyperspectral analysis readily accessible to everyone, STEMMER IMAGING´s hyperspectral systems allow the identification and separation of ingredients and substances based on chemical information, which is not possible using conventional colour or monochrome imaging.
The Boa Pro smart camera from Teledyne DALSA is available with a choice of resolutions and is embedded with the advanced Sherlock vision software. This application is particularly popular with vision integrators and is well suited to challenging or changing production line requirements. Sherlock offers the design flexibility and inspection capabilities to satisfy a diverse range of applications across all industries.
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. This demonstration will show how cameras with different interfaces (USB3 Vision and GigE Vision) and varying resolutions can be combined to meet different inspection needs.
The Austrian Graz-based Perception Park is the first company which specialises on industrial hyperspectral imaging. The data processing solutions based on industrial requirements result of more than 10 years of technological experience. Since January 2016 machine vision experts throughout Europe and Asia greatly benefit from Perception Park’s and STEMMER IMAGING’s cooperation.
STEMMER IMAGING has been leading the machine vision market since 1987. It is Europe's largest technology provider in this field. In 1997 STEMMER IMAGING presented Common Vision Blox (CVB), a powerful programming library for fast and reliable development and implementation of vision solutions, which has been deployed successfully throughout the world in more than 40,000 imaging applications in various industries.
Teledyne DALSA is one of the largest companies serving the machine vision industry and is unique in that it is vertically integrated; from sensor design and manufacture, through image capture and processing, to software for imaging optimisations and analysis.
