John Lewis, 05-20-2016
- Do you need to determine the position of an object, for example, to verify proper label placement?
- Do you need to ensure package integrity, or check that bottles or vials are fully closed and secured with tamper-proof seals?
- Do you need to verify that an object’s properties meet quality standards, such as the position and volume of glue beads used in automobile transmissions?
- Do you need to ensure that manufactured goods are produced without flaws, such as surface scratches, bent needle tips, and incomplete solder traces?
- Do you need to count items, such as pills in a blister pack, bottles in a case, and components of a kit?
- Do you need to verify the completeness of assemblies, such as the inclusion of consumer safety inserts and the completion of an assembly operation?
- Are you responsible for detecting tool wear in machining operations before parts are out of spec?
- Do you need to verify component dimensions, such as the measuring the gap on a spark plug?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, your company is a good candidate for integrating a machine vision system into your operations. For more information about machine vision, download Introduction to Machine Vision Inspection.
