Sherlock is an advanced machine vision software interface that can be applied to a wide variety of automated inspection applications. It offers maximum design flexibility and provides a rich suite of proven tools and capabilities that have been deployed in thousands of installations worldwide. With a keen eye for detail, our inspector will help you:
Combines multi-directional lighting with advanced software algorithms to eliminate surface background effects, such as noise or color, and produce an output image focused on the features most relevant to the inspection. This output image can then be inspected using standard Sherlock vision tools.
NEW Shape Extraction:
Offers a solution for extracting and inspecting features on parts or assemblies based on their 3 dimensional shape. This includes features that are raised, such as embossed characters, or impressed or indented features, such as stamped or engraved markings.
Extensive set of conditioning functions that can be applied to a ROI prior to analysis
Advance pattern finding tools for object alignment and robot guidance.
Precise tools for computing the dimensions on a variety of parts and shapes
Tools for finding and counting edges, extracting and analyzing features, detecting contrast variation and performing statistical analysis
Correct for linear, nonlinear and perspective image distortion. Convert camera pixel to real-world coordinates
Learn colors for monitoring, classifying, sorting, tracking and counting objects
Reader (Identification) Tools:
Reads and verifies 1D and 2D codes. Reads and identifies printed, molded or stamped text (OCR)
Custom Algorithms :
Unique inspection requirements? No problem! Sherlock allows you to add your favorite custom algorithm into the development environment.
Controls for protecting against unauthorized access and copying
Custom Interface :
OCX for designing custom operator interface using Visual Basic or Visual C
Hand-counting piston rings as small as 0.29 - 0.79 mm in width and packaging them in various batch counts, was not only adding to labor costs, but also proving unreliable in the highly competitive automotive sector. A far more reliable answer came in the form of a custom machine vision solution using Teledyne DALSA's Sherlock software.
