Process, print and packaging inspection systems on show
27 March 2013
Vision components and systems for processing, packaging, print, coding and labelling applications provide standalone or integrated inspection capabilities. Stemmer Imaging will be showing the latest imaging and inspection technology on Stand D70, at the TOTAL Show, NEC, 4th-6th June, 2013.
A new, scalable multi-camera vision system, the GEVA300 from Teledyne DALSA, provides a low cost process inspection capability. The GEVA300 compact vision system supports up to 6 GigE Vision cameras coupled to an Intel dual-core ATOM architecture for image processing and measurement that offers excellent performance for a wide range of inspection applications. Vision solutions are setup using iNspect or Sherlock application software, which both offer a wide selection of tools and capabilities for positioning, identification, verification, measurement, and flaw detection. GEVA300 is compatible with a wide range of GigE cameras, which can be mixed to suit the application need.
A new approach to industrial web inspection comes from the new KD series of contact image sensors for machine vision applications by Mitsubishi Electric Europe. These new contact image sensors have a working distance of 12 ± 0.05 mm from the front face, an improved depth of focus and a machine vision standard CameraLink output. The 12m working distance allows products with more variable height to be inspected, such as printed circuit boards, printed matter or LCD panels.
Another new development is a unique tool for Stemmer Imaging’s Common Vision Blox imaging toolkit that provides print inspection capabilities even when the print is on a complex textured background.
