Teledyne DALSA has added a new easy-to use GUI builder tool to its Sherlock advanced machine vision software platform. This greatly simplifies the creation of a custom front ends using a simple drag and drop approach.
All machine vision systems rely on the production of an image of sufficient quality to allow the required measurements to be made. Clearly the lens or lens combinations used in the vision system play a crucial role in determining the quality of the image produced. It has an impact on many other factors as well: These include the speed that can be achieved, measuring accuracy, and the reproducibility and reliability of the downstream analysis. Although fixed focus lenses are available, most lenses for machine vision applications are manufactured with metal housings and focus mechanisms.
