What is Machine Vision?
Machine Vision refers to the methods and technology used to provide imaging-based automatic inspection and analysis for a variety of applications such as automatic inspection, identification (using bar or data matrix codes), process control and robot guidance.
How does it work?
A specialized vision sensor collects an image of an item then processes the image as required by the on-board In-Sight software. The vision sensor gives one or more pass/fail signals (or other information) which cause the unwanted item to be removed from the process line. Different vision sensors are available for a variety of needs. Specialty lighting is often needed to produce a clearly defined image that can be processed quickly and accurately by the vision sensor.
