The Growth of Artificial Vision in Industry

Artificial vision in industrial environments has grown to be a vital part of a vast amount of production and packaging lines.  Artificial Vision is an indespensible tool which increases accuracy and precision of your completed, packaged products.  The use of artificial vision cannot be be beaten by any other inspction methods available on the market, as through capturing images of objects or the environment through artificial vision, it is possible to extract relevant information about the state of products and processes which would not be possible to detect, using other systems.  E2M have created versatile yet effective artificial vision systems for a range of different industries which has lead to them developing the best artifical vision systems available on the market.

How Artificial Vision works

Artificial vision systems work through the use of multiple cameras monitering the production line.  The number of cameras per machine vary dependint on the job whihc it is designed to carr yout however multiple of the systems are able to obtain a full 360 degree view of the objects on the line.  Each of the systems also come with adjustable LED lighting installed which allows clearer images to be taken and higher precision when detecting errors.  As the pressures of the industries are continuously changing, we have found that it is importnt that the format of each of the systems in your production line is highly adaptable.   This is why E2M have designed their atificial vision systems to have an easily configured format alowing it to adapt to the changing environment. Through E2M we supply a range of different artificial vision systems for inspection, classification, rejection, and orientation including:

  • Contourvision 3G
  • Verifitext
  • Visiolabelling
  • VisioLevel
  • VisioCap
  • Visio Can-End
  • VisioSorting
  • MultiStep
  • Proporcional
  • FlexiTurn
  • Turn Not Turn
  • In Feed Timer

Applications in Industry

Quality control: through which compliance with the technical specifications of an object is verified based on a pre-established pattern.

Metrology: which verifies compliance with the pre-established dimensions according to a specific pattern. The dimensions are not limited to the complete piece, but also to other aspects such as distances between edges, angles, position of holes, assemblies, etc.

Classification: to determine different kinds of products or to extract those that do not correspond according to the pre-defined characteristics. The classifications can be determined by dimensions, marks, reading elements, colors, etc.

Pick-up & Place: to locate the position of an object through the coordinates of the space where it is collected and move it to another indicated position.

Absence presence: inspecting areas to find objects, measure distances and recognize patterns to verify assemblies, labeling, etc.

Artificial vision is a fast growing sector of the production industry and allows constant precision and improvement along the lines.  To get more information on how we can integrate artificial vision into your production line, contact us today.
