Optische Inspektion – Kamera mit Ringblitz

Opti­cal inspection

Due to the con­stant­ly increas­ing demands on prod­uct qual­i­ty and doc­u­men­ta­tion, machine vision has become a key tech­nol­o­gy, not least because of the com­pact sys­tem solu­tions that are now avail­able, and its sales fig­ures are ris­ing rapid­ly. Machine vision is used wher­ev­er the task would be too dan­ger­ous for a human, would lead to fatigue and thus loss of con­cen­tra­tion, or where the require­ments would exceed the capa­bil­i­ties of a human.

With strong partners at your side

As an autho­rised sys­tem part­ner and main inte­gra­tor of Keyence Deutsch­land GmbH for sev­er­al years, the solu­tion of com­plex tasks is one of our core com­pe­tences. We offer you holis­tic sup­port from the fea­si­bil­i­ty study and project plan­ning to the final integration.

Since 2019, we have been a licensed solu­tion part­ner of MATRIX VISION and the par­ent com­pa­ny Bal­luff in the field of image pro­cess­ing. In addi­tion to indus­tri­al cam­eras with inter­face sup­port for USB 2.0, 3.0 and GigE Vision, Matrix Vision also offers smart cam­eras for rapid appli­ca­tion devel­op­ment, which do not require the use of a PC. The Smart Cam­era is also iden­ti­cal in design and can be found in the Bal­luff range. The web-based soft­ware solu­tion for cre­at­ing appli­ca­tions, which is adapt­ed to the hard­ware, enables sim­ple devel­op­ment and fast commissioning.

For opti­cal inspec­tion, our experts also suc­cess­ful­ly use the Hal­con soft­ware from the com­pa­ny MVTec Soft­ware GmbH. With a total of more than 2,000 oper­a­tors in the image pro­cess­ing library, Hal­con offers a sig­nif­i­cant­ly extend­ed range of func­tions and, in com­bi­na­tion with our expert knowl­edge, is there­fore ide­al­ly suit­ed for com­plex require­ments where the stan­dard tools of oth­er man­u­fac­tur­ers reach their limits.

Our services

Many machine vision projects start with a fea­si­bil­i­ty study when there is uncer­tain­ty about hard­ware selec­tion or gen­er­al fea­si­bil­i­ty. These exten­sive stud­ies are car­ried out in our own vision lab­o­ra­to­ry. Installed in a test case, an XG‑X con­troller of the largest per­for­mance class from Keyence is per­ma­nent­ly avail­able to us for stud­ies in the lab­o­ra­to­ry or also at the cus­tomer’s site.  At the end of a study, we hand over com­pre­hen­sive doc­u­men­ta­tion to the cus­tomer, which enables fur­ther plan­ning of the project.

The fur­ther pro­ce­dure depends on how the machine vision sys­tem is to be inte­grat­ed. There is the pos­si­bil­i­ty of inte­gra­tion as a stand-alone machine or into an already exist­ing sys­tem, for exam­ple an assem­bly machine or end-of-line inspection.

Standard holder for Keyence cameras

The stan­dard hold­er for Keyence cam­eras enables quick instal­la­tion and adjust­ment of the cam­era. Microme­tre screws allow quick and pre­cise adjust­ment in x- and y‑direction as well as 360° rota­tion of the cam­era at any time, thus sav­ing time also for lat­er readjustments.

Tech­ni­cal data
  • Exter­nal dimen­sions (LxWxH, mm): 90 x 119.3 x 215
  • Adjust­ment pos­si­bil­i­ty in y‑direction (mm): +/- 35mm
  • Mate­r­i­al: aluminium

Standard mask for Keyence systems

The stan­dard mask for Keyence sys­tems cre­ates an alter­na­tive to the in-house Keyence mask as an HMI appli­ca­tion. It offers advan­tages in menu man­age­ment and fault mes­sage dis­play, which pro­vides an improved overview of machine data and statuses.

If the mea­sur­ing sys­tem needs to be read­just­ed after some time, mea­sur­ing fields or lines can be edit­ed and saved direct­ly via the HMI with­out the need for addi­tion­al equip­ment. This reduces down­time and sup­port costs.

Mea­sure­ment lim­its can also be changed and adjust­ed at any time via the HMI.
