The JAI Apex Series of 3CMOS prism-based colour area scan cameras has been expanded with 5 new models. The range now features 3.2 Mpixel and 1.6 Mpixel versions, with PMCL, USB3 Vision, and GigE Vision interfaces available in each resolution.
The LXE300 Direct Connect line light and Connect-a-Light line light, Prox spot light and Brick spot light ranges of machine vision lights from Smart Vision Lights are now available in SWIR (Short Wavelength InfraRed) wavelengths. This opens up an extensive number of application opportunities not possible using visible light.
The Boa Spot IDE integrated vision sensor from Teledyne DALSA is a low cost 1D/2D code reader with additional OCR and verification tools, all at the price point of a traditional code reader. The versatile high-speed code reading algorithm not only increases reading speeds by a factor of up to 10, but offers enhanced capabilities for more difficult direct part marking applications.
High requirements for speed and accuracy make machine vision an ideal solution for quality control in the print and paper industries. The German company Roptec proves that this technology goes far beyond the mere production process. Their machine vision system is used for optical quality control in the handling of paper rolls.
Sophisticated technology for the pharmaceutical industry and the construction of machines in this sector are among the core competences of Harro Höfliger. Machine vision systems ensure reliable quality inspections at several points in a new plant for the packaging of painkillers.
Since decades, Swiss company Hunkeler has set standards for the paper processing industry. With Mitsubishi Electric´s Line Scan Bars and STEMMER IMAGING as their machine vision partner, Hunkeler has now given a preview of future web inspection systems, integrated into their DP8 Dynamic Perforator.
