Fine Color Processing extracts a color's hue, saturation, and brightness values. Stains are then processed as variances in any of these values. Gradual changes caused by seams or lighting variations on curved surfaces can then be factored out in order to eliminate false detections.
Color extraction was used to detect flaws and foreign particles inside of paper cups, but seams were often detected as flaws. The CV-5000 Series Fine Color Processing can adjust for gradual changes in color such as a seam and extracts the stark differences in hue caused by a stain.
The CV-X Series is an innovative, user-friendly vision system that uses high-speed cameras to solve inspection applications across all manufacturing industries. The CV-X vision system incorporates cameras and lighting to stably image parts in-line to improve efficiency and ensure quality. Industries served include automotive, electronics, medical, food and packaging, and any process that requires inspection on high-volume parts. Common applications include defect detection and surface inspection, presence of parts and features, assembly verification, vision guided robotics, measurement, and code reading.
