Advanced Vision: How Photometry-based Imaging is Revolutionizing Surface Inspection, Glass and Particle Inspection, and Assembly Verification
Are you facing a tough visual inspection challenge with your devices?
Looking for a better way to prevent escapes, latent failures, and product returns?
Machine vision has been a boon to manufacturers, allowing visual inspection to be done at production line-speeds with consistency, repeatability, and objective data. Yet there are some visual inspection tasks that are beyond the capability of typical machine vision systems. Complex assemblies, subtle surface defects, areas of low-contrast, and glass or transparent materials require a higher level of visual acuity, which has often been provided by human inspectors. Human inspectors, however, can be costly and subject to inconsistency and fatigue.
Advanced Vision combines the benefits of machine vision inspection systems with the power of true human vision.
Based on photometric imaging principles for light measurement, our sophisticated imaging technologies and software algorithms offer capabilities that go beyond traditional machine vision systems when used for inspection of devices and non-lit surfaces. Advanced Vision applies high-resolution, high-dynamic-range, and low-noise imaging that matches—or even exceeds—the acuity of human vision to detect flaws.
Ideal for cosmetic surface inspection, high-precision assembly (e.g., verifying component presence and placement), glass inspection, and particle detection, Advanced Vision solutions can help you achieve absolute product quality while improving throughput, increasing inspection accuracy, reducing escapes, and ensuring customer satisfaction.
In this eBook you'll learn about:
- What makes your "hard" inspection problem so hard—including complexity, lack of contrast, and unpredictability of defects
- A comparison of different visual inspection methods (humans, machine vision, photometry-based imaging) and how they address various production and quality parameters
- How photometry-based vision works and the importance of image resolution, dynamic range, and signal-to-noise ratio when it comes to precision inspection
- How to solve manufacturing quality challenges in cosmetic surface inspection, glass/transparent layers, and electromechanical assemblies
