Machine vision technology may be more powerful than you think.
Machine vision technology is simply to let the machine have the visual function, using industrial cameras to replace human eyes to make judgment, mainly through image acquisition and software processing, which has many advantages that manual detection does not have, such as high detection accuracy, no fatigue, fast speed and high product consistency.
Although the technology is complex, the basic sequence of using machine vision to perform automated tasks is simple: the visual system is triggered, images are captured when the parts are in front of it, then the system processes the images to extract key features and data. Finally, it communicates the resulting data, which can be as simple as pass/fail so that actions and decisions can be made. These actions include triggering a rejection mechanism or picking up the location of a detected component for the robot.
As long as the quality is maintained, the faster the production line, the better. Machine vision systems need to be able to scan images of parts passing through them almost instantaneously. With advanced optical technology, superior lighting technology and state-of-the-art algorithms, machine vision systems can perform a variety of industrial automation tasks. It turns out that the broad functions of machine vision boil down to a few basic functions: positioning, measuring, counting and decoding.
