3D Vision series - Inline 3D Inspection

The XT series is a highly accurate 2D and 3D vision system used to perform advanced in-line inspections. The XT series includes 2 camera models with a field of view up to 60x60mm to inspect and measure parts across various manufacturing industries. With a 9+ megapixel image sensor and large diameter telecentric lens, the XT is repeatable to 0.5-1µm with +/- 10-20 µm accuracy. These high-quality images can be captured in as little as 0.6 seconds. Along with capturing accurate 3D image data, the 2D image is illuminated with RGB lighting to ensure highly accurate color imaging, which enables inspection of 2D features simultaneously.

3D VGR series - 3D Vision-Guided Robotics

The 3D vision-guided robotics system from KEYENCE is designed for unparalleled object detection capability and ease-of-use. This system can be used in the automation of assembly, de-palletizing, and machine tending processes. To gather 3D data, the four-camera, one-projector imaging unit captures 136 total images as the high-speed projector emits multiple striped-light patterns across the target. The user follows a simple setup process, including automatic robot-camera calibration. CAD data of the part to be detected can be uploaded to further simplify the setup process. For each detected object, the Path Planning tool calculates a full path of robot motion to efficiently pick and move the part while avoiding all collisions with the bin or cell. This whole process can be simulated during the work cell design process, using the built-in Picking Simulator which allows users to test out different grippers or cell designs and simulate the picking results without installing or changing any physical hardware.

Line Scan series - Line Scan Technology

Line scan cameras are a type of camera that capture an image one line at a time, which allows high resolution imaging of large webs, sheet-type parts, and cylindrical targets with very consistent lighting. The KEYENCE Line Scan Series includes cameras with a minimum speed of 165 kHz for extremely fast captures, which allows detection of small defects such as linear scratches, dirt, and dents at high speeds. The newly developed LumiTrax™ Specular Reflection mode uses striped lighting with the line scan cameras to detect surface defects that were previously impossible with standard line scan systems or traditional machine vision cameras.

CA-D series - LED Lighting

The KEYENCE LED lighting series offers a wide selection of lighting that is directly connected and controlled by KEYENCE vision systems to obtain consistent target illumination and highlight desired features. This lineup spans from traditional machine vision lighting (available in white, red, and blue) to innovative, high performance lighting techniques. The high performance lighting unlocks inspections that were previously impossible or unreliable. LumiTrax™ lighting enables surface appearance inspections with no influence from background glare and patterns. Multi-Spectrum lighting combines 8 different colors of light to differentiate subtle differences and defects. Pattern Projection lighting transforms a 2D camera into a simultaneous 2D/3D inspection system with its addition of height data.
