3D Machine Vision Inspection from Cognex
March 27, 2013
The DS1000 from Cognex Corp., Natick, MA, is a 3D laser profiling system that calibrates real-world units of measurement for inspections too difficult to perform with traditional 2D machine vision. The sensor reads embossed or raised characters such as those on automobile tires, verifies the presence of low-contrast items in boxes or packages, identifies surface defects and chips with low or no contrast, measures heights and tilts of components to determine misalignment, and calculates volumes and dimensions for food portioning. The sensor provides measurements with micron-level accuracy and is integrated with the company's VisionPro 3D vision software.
