1. Since the workpieces are red-hot metal, they are affected by infrared which makes them appear blurry when photographed by a monochrome camera. The XG Series uses a color cameras to capture a clear, good-contrast image. 2. Previous methods of performing this inspection relied on the perceptions of the human operators to do the work. Using megapixel cameras provides high-precision measurement in order to do accurate inspections for misalignment.
Since press cycles are between 3 and 5 seconds, the operator previously had to check the workpieces continuously and sometimes mistakes occurred. Using machine vision equipment ensures stable inspection, and reduces the number of workers needed.
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.
