1. Color extraction methods using HSV (hue-saturation-value) provide stable detection even when there are variations in grease and workpiece surface color tones. 2. As well as detecting whether grease has been applied, machine vision equipment can measure the grease quantity by surface area in order to identify whether the proper amount has been applied.
The amount of grease applied to parts was previously identified using color sensors. The sensors could only detect whether grease had been applied, and sometimes parts without enough grease were allowed to pass. Machine vision equipment can reliably identify parts without the proper amount of grease as defects.
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.
