Machine Vision Inspection & Measurement

On Chip Polarization eBookContinuing innovations in machine vision technology is taking automation beyond the traditional industrial production floor, into a host of new markets and opportunities for inspection and measurement applications. Higher resolution sensors, faster processing speeds, along with increased capabilities of various vision tools, have enabled automated processes to detect a flaw in a single pixel of our 4K LCD TVs. We can now enhance the quality of mass produced products by inspecting almost every component down to a fraction of an inch, or teach a robot, through Vision Guided Robotics (VGR), with exacting precision on where to pick up an item, and where to put it down. We can increase the speed in which we assemble printed circuit boards by using vision systems that can pick and place tiny microelectronic packages into an exacting footprint.

All of this is being accomplished as a result of today's vision technology, and ever evolving imaging standards. These innovations are allowing us to take full advantage of today's computers, with their increased processing power, and state of the art communication channels. Vision standards such as Camera Link, Camera Link HS, and newly developed CoaXPress, and USB 3.0 Vision are allowing us to create next generation vision systems.

All of these incredible advancements in the vision industry have resulted in Machine Vision systems, having a lower cost of acquisition, greater performance, and vast quality improvements. This has made it easier for companies to automate processes to meet the competitive demands for increased production rates, higher quality, lower costs, and faster time to market.
