Profile inspection of defective needle tips

The vision system detects defective needle tips.

KEYENCE's 5 Mega pixel camera provides 4 times higher resolution than a standard 310,000 pixel camera in the horizontal and vertical directions. Even the most subtle flaws can be detected with high accuracy.


Defective needle tips were inspected with a 310,000-pixel camera, which could only detect large defects. However, with the XG Series, it is now possible to detect minute defects by using a 5 Mega-pixel camera.
