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.
Bergader Privatkäserei, established in 1902, relies on state-of-the-art technology as well as traditional craftsmanship in the manufacture of its cheese specialities. A hyperspectral imaging system is being used for the first time for the packaging of the blue cheese ‘Bergader Edelpilz’.
Compact industrial vision systems provide a powerful embedded vision solution for high-speed inspection of multiple features of a part or assembly. A rugged industrial controller acquires, processes and analyses images from multiple cameras for applications such as final inspection of large assemblies. Designed specifically for use on the factory floor, the robust systems run embedded versions of PC machine vision software. This is a cost effective alternative approach to deploying standard PC solutions in harsh industrial environments.
With the new bonNDTinspect® system, Automation W+R enables the reliable assessment of surfaces that are to be bonded, painted or otherwise treated in subsequent process steps. The system is based on a patent held by Fraunhofer IFAM and machine vision components from STEMMER IMAGING.
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.
Embedded Vision has been THE trend topic in the industry for some time now. Rarely in the past has a vision technology been ascribed so much change potential. A large number of exciting possible uses for Embedded Vision systems already exist in virtually all branches of industry and daily life. But will this technology really lead to a complete upheaval in machine vision?
High requirements for speed and accuracy make machine vision an ideal solution for quality control in the print and paper industries. The German company Roptec proves that this technology goes far beyond the mere production process. Their machine vision system is used for optical quality control in the handling of paper rolls.
What makes a machine vision system robust? Robustness in this context is more than just reliability. It is a reliability that is maintained within the natural variations of the environment in which the system is being used.
The new colour versions of the BOA Spot smart vision sensor from Teledyne DALSA provide even greater versatility for single point industrial part and assembly verification. Colour training, matching and verification capabilities have been added to the existing embedded inspection tools. With easy factory integration and a highly competitive price point, Boa Spot Colour allows automated vision inspection to be added at almost any point in the production line.
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.
