New dimension to quality control with 3D industrial inspection
Industrial Vision Systems (IVS) has launched a range of vision systems for 3D vision operations in industrial environments. This series of products offers a wide range of powerful and flexible sensors, from single point displacement units to full 3D point cloud scanners.
These products are designed for reliable operation in harsh industrial surroundings ensuring longevity and low maintenance.
The 3D vision systems introduced by IVS can also be used for many challenging inspection and guidance applications where traditional machine visions would struggle, such as assembly verification, robot pick and place, and precision 3D measurements. With these improved systems, manufacturers for industries such as food and drink, automotive, pharmaceutical, printing and packaging and electronics can receive quality data instantly, and at full production speed. The accurate, high speed measurement avoids costly slowdowns or processing errors, ultimately unlocking higher profit margins.
The advanced capability of the 3D systems, compared to conventional two dimensional sensors, comes from their ability to measure size and position with extremely high accuracy - with resolutions down to micron level - regardless of an object’s height or colour. The sensors are able to capture 3D, scatter, and grayscale images simultaneously to produce a more robust and reliable vision control system, either through stand-alone sensors or complex engineered machines.
The IVS 3D products range from versatile high-speed cameras that deliver high quality 3D and contrast images to smart and configurable stand-alone sensors that facilitate rapid development.
Earl Yardley, IVS Director, commented: “One of the biggest technology challenges manufacturers face is the integration of 3D cameras. This complex technology requires vision engineering at an extremely high level; something that we can provide. We have experience in integrating such systems in many factory environments and applications. These 3D machine vision systems provide factory calibrated 3D with built-in lighting which means they instantly provide precision results, thus making the integration easier for the customer.”
IVS is already successfully implementing the 3D technology into several inspection applications across a variety of industries, from automated height inspection through to pick & place robot control. With 3D technologies in development IVS is well placed to provide the very latest vision system technology and solutions.
