Optical system replaces multicamera setup

SEPTEMBER 16, 2009--The Within 360° machine-vision system inspects for defects within the walls of internal holes.

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.

PRESS RELEASE

Within 360°

VisionXtreme offers a revolutionary machine vision solution, Within 360°, to inspect for defects within the walls of internal holes. Its optical setup allows users to inspect the 360 degree surface of the internal wall utilising one single camera to capture a single image to process any defects.

Typically, multi-cameras are needed to cover the full 360 degree-view of the threaded walls during inspection. Alternatively, parts need to be rotated if a single camera system is employed. Due to space constraint and inspection speed requirement, such methods greatly complicate the inspection systems in production machines. VisionXtreme's Within 360° optical system eliminates the complexity and costly requirement faced by today's productions.

Advantages:
* Single camera, single image for acquisition of entire internal hole
* Non-contact and no moving parts
* Random orientation of parts
* No space constraint
* Lower cost vs multiple camera solution
* Faster processing speed (single image, no stitching required)

Applications:
* Inspecting internal thread
* Inspecting internal hole surfaces
* inspecting blind holes
