Vision System Simultaneous Provides 2D and 3D Inspection

A new level of inspection using pattern projection lighting is available from Keyence. The CV-X/XG-X Series system lighting incorporates pattern projection from eight light sources capable of accurately capturing target appearance and using lighting adjustments for stable detection of difficult-to-spot variations. 3D imaging enables stable detection with the addition of height data and the system allows Inspection of small and large parts with two light sizes, 125mm and 250mm.

High-intensity LumiTrax™ lighting is offered for 2D image processing with pattern projection lighting for 3D image processing. Multiple stripe patterns are projected at high speed, integrated ultrahigh-speed CMOS sensor and processor analyse the light reflected from the targets in real-time to generate 3D image. A new capture method generates shape (irregularity) images and texture (pattern) images via analysis of multiple images with directional lighting. A maximum of 212 captures with a single trigger are possible (when using pattern projection lighting).

Included software numerous proprietary algorithms, such as LumiTrax™ Capture Mode, Auto Teach Inspection, point and click measurement tools enabling stable inspection without influence from surface conditions or variations between good parts. The software user interface emphasizes “simple for all users.” allowing optimized image creation with ease, simply using menu-driven guidance screen input. A tool for detecting variations in appearance by comparing 3D appearance data on registration, including height and conducts appearance comparisons over the full processing region, allowing this one tool to handle multiple inspection items such as product type difference checks and presence/absence inspections.

Keyence offers a versatile lineup, including 0.31 to 21 megapixel cameras, ultra small cameras, and IP rated cameras; users can select the ideal camera for their application, from simple presence/ absence inspections to wide field, high accuracy product appearance inspections. 3D toolset enables stability with 3D comparison, shape detection, and cross-sectional area allowing diverse approaches to inspection, optimizing solutions to previously challenging inspections.

A tool for detecting variations in appearance by comparing 3D appearance data on registration, including height. Since it conducts an appearance comparison over the full processing region, this one tool can handle multiple inspection items such as product type difference checks and presence/absence inspections.
