Machine vision is a dynamic field: STEMMER IMAGING and our suppliers are the world´s leading manufacturers for machine vision components and solutions, introducing many brand new developments several times a year.
The new Dimension range of lenses from Zeiss has been designed for precise high-end applications, where distortion, vignetting and colouring issues must be minimised. Developed specifically for C-mount cameras, these new lenses provide high contrast, razor-sharp images, even at maximum aperture. They are virtually distortion-free across the entire area of sensors up to 4/3” and can resolve pixel sizes down to 2 μm.
The JAI Apex Series of 3CMOS prism-based colour area scan cameras has been expanded with 5 new models. The range now features 3.2 Mpixel and 1.6 Mpixel versions, with PMCL, USB3 Vision, and GigE Vision interfaces available in each resolution.
The LXE300 Direct Connect line light and Connect-a-Light line light, Prox spot light and Brick spot light ranges of machine vision lights from Smart Vision Lights are now available in SWIR (Short Wavelength InfraRed) wavelengths. This opens up an extensive number of application opportunities not possible using visible light.
The new 86 Mpixel Falcon4™ colour or monochrome cameras from Teledyne DALSA provide exceptional resolution at high frame rates of 16 fps. The CMOS sensor has more pixels (10720 × 8064) than 40 HD screens, allowing inspection of extremely large areas without image stitching or revealing even finer detail in traditional industrial vision applications.
CCS has introduced the TH2-CR series of flat light units with a camera window which provide light from the same axis as the camera. The wide emitting surface combines wide-field imaging with highly uniform illumination, making these new lights an attractive alternative to coaxial and dome lights.
A new 3-CMOS area scan camera combines the accuracy of prism-based optics with the image quality provided by Sony Pregius IMX265 colour sensors. The prism separates incoming light into red, green and blue wavelengths, which are directed onto the three precisely-aligned sensors. This allows the JAI APEX AP-3200T-USB to deliver better colour fidelity and spatial precision than traditional Bayer colour cameras.
The new Teledyne DALSA Piranha4 Polarization line scan camera represents a breakthrough in machine vision by revealing non-visible properties of materials that cannot be detected with conventional imaging. With three independent polarisation detection channels, this innovative camera enables high-speed, real-time detection of birefringence, stress, surface roughness, film thickness, and other physical properties.
The versatile Vico DTCM series of bi-telecentric lenses are designed for high accuracy machine vision measurements. The modular design allows object side and image side lens components to be combined into more than 200 specific lenses to meet an enormous range of imaging requirements.
STEMMER IMAGING have been appointed as an approved supplier for Intel® RealSense™ technology and will promote and provide support services to accelerate the integration of the latest D400 series of Intel RealSense™ 3D imaging technology into real world applications.
Teledyne DALSA’s new Linea 16k CLHS line scan camera is the first in the Linea range to utilise the high data transmission CLHS interface. 2 GByte/sec data throughput using a single CX4 cable with long transmission distances and cable flexibility, and an outstanding line rate up to 71 kHz, allow even higher inspection throughput to be achieved. Application areas include pharmaceutical labels and print inspection and flat panel display, printed circuit board and electronic component inspection.
