Machine Vision Services
With years of industrial machine vision experience, we bring a wealth of knowledge to your project. Get great images with the right hardware selection, lighting, and optics. When the hardware and lighting are well chosen, the image analysis is made easy and the cycle time is fast. Hardware experience - •Vision Platforms: •Matrox •Cognex, Cognex Insight, Cognex CVL •Acumen •DVT •Custom & Proprietary Libraries. •Cameras: •Linescan and TDI Linescan Cameras •Hi-Resolution Cameras •GigE, •Progressive Scan cameras for dynamic image size control •Lights: •Simple ring-lights •Dark-field and Bright-field lighting •Laser raster scan •Laser-lines for weld beads •UV Lighting for fluorescene •CoAxial optics trains •Backlighting and it's pitfalls •Strobes, IR Strobes •Cloudy day illuminators for shadowless lighting, more. Talk to us about your application and a quick-turnaround-time feasibility study. Past projects include the following: •Glass surface inspection for scratches, chips. •Glass bottle inspection for chips, dimension, cap seal. •Raw ore inspection for salts and contaminates. •Grass seed inspection and characterization. •Adhesive inspection using fluorescent dopants for increased 'signal to noise' ratio. •Foam Ear plug in air tubes inspected for debris, bad molds. •Airplane wing rivets. •Food conveyor handling and bad produce. •Wood products: grain and knot detction. •InkJet nozzle measurements for: circularity, concentricity.
