New firmware adds advanced features to area-scan cameras
SEPTEMBER 15, 2009--All scout and pilot area-scan cameras produced from September 2009 on will be fully equipped with new firmware during production.
SEPTEMBER 16, 2009--The Within 360° machine-vision system inspects for defects within the walls of internal holes. Its optical setup allows users to inspect the 360° surface of the internal wall utilizing a single camera to capture a single image to process any defects. Typically multicamera systems are needed to cover the full 360° view of the threaded walls during inspection or parts need to be rotated in a single-camera system. Within 360° is a noncontact system with no moving parts and no space constraints. It is available at a lower cost than a multiple-camera solution and offers faster processing speed with a single image and no stitching required.
