PPMA Total Show brings hyperspectral imaging
New hyperspectral imaging capabilities will be shown off for the first time at the PPMA Total Show, by STEMMER IMAGAING. The technique will reveal chemical composition information and has applications in the pharmaceutical, medical and food processing industries. Teledyne DALSA’s Boa Pro smart camera, embedded with advanced Sherlock vision software and a multi-camera packing inspection system will also be on show.
Hyperspectral imaging opens up innovative new inspection possibilities for machine vision users. The near infrared absorption behaviour of organic objects can provide information on their chemical structure.
Based on an intuitive, configurable data processing software platform from Perception Park that makes the scientific methods of hyperspectral analysis readily accessible to everyone, STEMMER IMAGAING´s hyperspectral systems allow the identification and separation of ingredients and substances based on chemical information, which is not possible using conventional colour or monochrome imaging.
The Boa Pro smart camera is available with a choice of resolutions and is embedded with the advanced Sherlock vision software. This application is particularly popular with vision integrators and is well suited to challenging or changing production line requirements. Sherlock offers the design flexibility and inspection capabilities to satisfy a diverse range of applications across all industries.
A multi-camera packaging inspection system will be used to determine print quality, read alphanumeric and barcode data and check fill-level as boxes pass underneath. This demonstration will show how cameras with different interfaces (USB3 Vision and GigE Vision) and varying resolutions can be combined to meet different inspection needs.
