Vision Inspection Systems

Vision inspection systems are so affordable that they can be used at multiple points in a manufacturing process. With vision systems, every critical step can be inspected, defects can be detected early and equipment problems can be identified quickly.

The possible applications are endless. If a feature can be seen by a smart camera there is an opportunity to use a vision system to inspect it, measure it, verify it or guide it, to reduce your costs and the risk of quality issues going undetected.

As a Cognex Partner Systems Integrator, ITS’ experience in the configuration, implementation and testing of vision inspection systems is extensive. ITS has installed systems in the Automotive, Food & Beverage, Medical Device, Nuclear, Packaging and Pharmaceutical industries using the following tools: 

Measurement
Measurement tools provide high speed and high accuracy gauging of parts, including the distances between circles, points, lines and edges. The tools are used to measure critical tolerances such as the diameter and sharpness of a syringe needle tip, the dimensions of a valve for an internal combustion engine and the position of pins in a connector plug.

1D & 2D Code Readers
Code reading tools verify and read 1D and 2D codes, applied using a range of techniques including dot peen, laser, electro-chemical etch and ink-jet on a variety of surfaces. The tools are useful for Direct Part Mark Identification (DPMI) – the process of automatically identifying products to achieve full lifecycle traceability as the readers provide high read rates and process control metrics for code verification.

OCV and OCR
Optical Character Verification (OCV) and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) tools quickly and accurately inspect and verify printed alphanumeric characters on products. The tools ensure that variable data marked on a part or label is not only human-readable, but is also correct. The tools can tolerate changes in label orientation, low contrast printing, poor lighting and severe degradations in print quality.

Colour Detection
Colour detection tools are used in a variety of industries to perform a wide range of inspection tasks. The tools are used to ensure that the correct labels have been applied during packaging, to distinguish between physically similar, different coloured parts, or to prove that the material colour between batches is consistent.

Inspection
Inspection tools are used to verify the presence and correctness of components and the correct assembly of parts. The high-speed and high-accuracy tools identify flaws in part appearance and can be used to classify defects by type. Variable data can be passed between inspection processors and other devices to change the inspection criteria.

Part Location
Part location tools are used to identify the position of parts, prior to inspection, or to guide a robot. These powerful tools can locate parts when the object has been rotated, the size has changed, the appearance is degraded or the part is partially hidden.

ITS also offers PC Based Vision Systems and Code Readers. As well as integration services, ITS also provides Call-Out Support Services for vision inspection systems and Service Level Agreements, for the maintenance and support of our systems and/ or vision inspection systems installed by others.
