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.
Part of the new TH2 series of flat machine vision LEDs from CCS Inc, the high output TH2-PM family of backlights have been optimised to give highly directional illumination. This makes them ideally suited to dimensional measurements where accurate imaging of the outline of objects is needed and other transmission imaging applications.
A new 3-CMOS area scan camera combines the accuracy of prism-based optics with the image quality provided by Sony Pregius IMX265 colour sensors. The prism separates incoming light into red, green and blue wavelengths, which are directed onto the three precisely-aligned sensors. This allows the JAI APEX AP-3200T-USB to deliver better colour fidelity and spatial precision than traditional Bayer colour cameras.
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.
Since decades, Swiss company Hunkeler has set standards for the paper processing industry. With Mitsubishi Electric´s Line Scan Bars and STEMMER IMAGING as their machine vision partner, Hunkeler has now given a preview of future web inspection systems, integrated into their DP8 Dynamic Perforator.
The Swiss company, Leuthold Mechanik AG (HLM) makes machines for manufacturing aluminium containers which, among other things, are used for packaging pet food and foodstuffs. A core element of quality assurance is machine vision by STEMMER IMAGING.
