What vision tasks do you need to perform?

Could your manufacturing process benefit from vision tasks like these?

  • Guide a robot for assembly or welding
  • Verify the correct orientation of a part or assembly
  • Count the number of welds, teeth, slots, or other such features
  • Read a barcode, 2D matrix code, or stamped characters
  • Perform a critical dimensional measurement
  • Check for surface defects before painting
  • Determine the location, diameter, and roundness of a hole
  • Verify the integrity and uniformity of an adhesive bead or gasket
  • Communicate with 3rd party equipment such as robots, PLCs, HMIs, and remote storage

Article: Vision system ensures speed and accuracy for automotive industry

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.
