Flexible EyeVision Machine Vision Software For Every Image Processing Application

The EVT EyeVision machine vision software with parallel processing function and EyeVision 3D commands offer a graphical user interface for creation of inspection programs with drag-and-drop simplicity. EyeVision has commands to solve every image processing application including pattern matching, object detection/counting, 3D and color inspection, bar code, QR, DMC reading, OCR/OCV, robot guidance, bin-picking, metrology, and thermal imaging.

EyeVision is able to run multiple run-times with several numbers of 2D cameras and 3D sensors with each separate inspection program at the same time with a single computing unit and EyeVision software.

EyeVision 3D ProfileMatch command allows profile scans allowing inspections checks of weld seams and adhesive beads. The EyeVision 3D Unrolling straightens 3D point clouds images of tilt-scans (laser triangulation sensor is rotated) enabling a laser line scanner to scan a large area without necessity of a large linear axis.

Mecmesin Launch of the OmniTest-5.0 Universal Testing Machine

Mecmesin is launching its new OmniTest-5.0 Universal Testing Machine designed to meet the diverse needs of both R&D laboratories and quality assurance environments and offers enhanced performance and capability making it suitable for both product and materials testing applications up to a capacity of 5kN.

The OmniTest frame and drive system offers excellent rigidity with negligible deflection, with extended throat depth for sample testing up to 200mm diameter, and can test a wide material range including metals, polymers, composites, fabrics, glass and ceramics using the extensive selection of grips and fixtures. A simple front panel allows selection of test parameters live load and length readings and precise manual cross-head positioning.

Mecmesin’s new generation of electronics gives active load control and improved motor performance giving a speed range from 0.01 mm/min to 1200 mm/min with a positional resolution of 0.001 mm.  The OmniTest-5.0 incorporates state of the art electronics and a new Enhanced Load Sensor (ELS).  Load accuracy is 0.5% rdg with a resolution of 1:25000 allowing a wider range of tests to be performed without the need to select a different load sensor.

Discover FactorySmart Inspection at Control

LMI’s flagship Gocator 3D smart sensors for inline inspection will be showcased at Control including interactive sensor playgrounds and live demonstrations of laser line profilers and snapshot sensors. LMI will also demonstrate its new multi-sensor networking capabilities with full 360º views of the scan target along with a Gocator-powered robotic solution for the automotive industry.

“Automated inline inspection is the core of our Gocator solution. Whether its scanning moving or stationary targets, or large/complex parts and assemblies, Gocator delivers the crucial speed, resolution, and repeatability for inline quality control. Gocator works seamlessly with factory equipment and control systems to optimize your production line.” states Christian Benderoth, Regional Development Manager EMEAR for LMI Technologies.

3D camera system upgraded with 5 MP cameras

The IDS modular 3D camera system, Ensenso X, is now available with 5 MP industrial camera offering larger field of view and more image resolution offering improved 3D point cloud quality. Compared to the currently available 1.3 MP sensors the larger field of view means that the distance between the camera system and the object can be reduced with Z-accuracy improved from to 0.2 mm. Further advantages of the new model include an increase of up to 35% in lateral resolution with more than 30% lower noise allowing details and depth information to be captured more precisely.

Multi-Sensor Gear Checker with Laser Scanning Revolutionizes Gear Inspection

The versatile platform of Gleason’s 300GMSL Inspection System provides the classic tactile probing methods for inspecting conventional gear data on spur and helical cylindrical gears as well as straight, spiral and hypoid bevel gears with a diameter of up to 300 mm. In addition, the new inspection system allows non-contact laser sensor scanning of tooth flanks to support gear development. Complete topography data can be recorded far more rapidly than with conventional tactile probing, with comparable results. The integration of laser scanning and associated 3D graphics with CAD interface considerably expand both the functionality and the range of applications for this machine platform. The new option makes the 300GMSL the ideal solution for research and development applications, for both prototype and production parts or when reverse engineering is required. The 300GMSL Inspection System is also an ideal fit for rapid measurement of topography in regular production operation and satisfies the increasingly stringent requirements on gear inspection. Compliant, soft materials, such as plastic gears, can be inspected without sustaining damage. Further options include surface finish measurement and Barkhausen noise analysis to inspect for grind burn reduce.
