CVS HyperInspect – Chemical material analysis in industrial production processes

  • Modular, industrial system consisting of hardware and software components to analyse chemical material properties
  • Visualisation of different molecular structures to identify
    • differences in similar looking materials
    • identical material properties of different looking objects
    • transformation processes of identical objects
  • Analysis based on more than 100 different wave lengths
  • Real-time evaluation of chemical material properties
  • Graphical user interface for intuitive analysis of hyperspectral image data

How does hyperspectral imaging work?

Chemical Colour Imaging visualises the molecular structure of materials by different colouring in the resulting images. This unique „chemical fingerprint“ enables easy and reliable identification of identical or different looking objects. It also works the other way round: It is possible to detect identical material properties of different looking objects.

Hyperspectral imaging allows the visualisation of transformation levels of products that are subject to transformation processes for example ripening fruit. Hyperspectral systems analyse a spectral range of more than 100 different wavelengths (for example 900 nm - 1700 nm), thus opening up completely new application options exceeding by far the current range of multi-spectral imaging applications.

However, hyperspectral camera technology has not yet been widely applied in the industrial environment. Until now, the use of hyperspectral systems has only been accessible to experts in spectroscopy and chemometry, due to extensive and highly complex data volumes.

The Perception Park software reduces and simplifies these huge and complex data volumes for easy application in the industrial field even without expert knowledge. In particular, the intuitive and configurable graphical user interface of Perception Park’s software provides for simple and convenient evaluation of hyperspectral data.

Reasons for CVS hyperspectral systems

You want a rapid and hassle-free set up of your hyperspectral system

The CVS HyperInspect provide you with a comprehensive range of all the components needed for your hyperspectral imaging task. They are characterized by their modular design. One core element is Perception Park’s software package featuring an intuitive and individually configurable graphical user interface.

Your benefits:

  • You are supplied with an all-in-one system including all necessary components saving you the time-consuming and challenging search for composing the appropriate imaging products.
  • You can be sure that all components are perfectly matched to one another allowing you the immediate operation of your system.
  • The intuitive software solution saves you time and money for the development of expertise.

You want a system that meets industrial standards

Thanks to our many years of experience as a partner of renowned companies in the industrial field we completely understand our customers´ requirements ensuring their reliable fulfillment already when planning and designing the systems. This includes our CVS HyperInspect use the proven standard interfaces such as GigE Vision and CameraLink. On the software side, hyperspectral data volumes are specifically reduced in order to extract only the interpretable chemical properties.

Your benefits:

  • You are supplied with a system that meets the requirements of modern industrial manufacturing.
  • Thanks to standardised communication protocols your system quickly and simply integrates into an existing application.
  • You save cost for designing a complex processing architecture which has so far been required for hyperspectral imaging.

Application examples

Food industry: Distinction of meat, fat and bones

Hyperspectral analysis allows clear distinction of substances, for example chicken meat where the colour of bones and meat show a high degree of similarity. Meat, fat and bones can be reliably classified which significantly facilitates the cutting of chicken pieces.

Recycling: Reliable separation of recyclable materials

Hyperspectral imaging allows you to reliably classify material properties regardless of visual appearance ensuring you easy and precise separation of recyclable waste.

Pharmaceutical industry: 100% quality control

100% testing of substances in medical products can be achieved by applying hyperspectral systems in production lines ensuring complete control in ongoing manufacturing processes without delays.
