Vision Inspection Systems can be used in any industry in which quality control is necessary.
For example, vision systems can assist robotic systems in obtaining the positioning of parts to further automate and streamline the manufacturing process. Data collected by a vision system can also help improve efficiency in manufacturing lines, sorting, packing and other applications. In addition, information captured by vision systems can help to identify problems in the manufacturing line.
We have a number of standard inspection systems for the food, beverage and packaging industries.
Our systems feature proven performance, easy maintainability, and low cost of ownership. Due to a modular set-up, you are able to combine multiple inspection elements into one system. In addition, we can configure the modular system in a flexible way to fulfil your capacity and functional requirements and easily fit them into existing lines. We can also develop customer-specific applications for you, building on the already proven hardware and software.
Food, beverage & packaging inspection solutions include:
- mix-up detection (product packaging)
- label and decoration inspection
- starch mould inspection
- glass contamination inspection
- neck finish inspection
- cap inspection
- scoop insert inspection
- empty can inspection, and
- code reading (production date on consumer products).
Overall, the benefits of vision inspection systems include, but are not limited to, production improvements, increased uptime, and reduction in expenses.
Vision systems allow companies to conduct 100% inspection of parts for quality control purposes, ensuring that all products meet customers’ specifications. If you want to improve both quality and efficiency, a vision inspection system is the answer for you.
Our 2D machine vision systems are unmatched in their ability to inspect, identify and guide parts. These self-contained, industrial-grade vision systems, combine a library of advanced vision tools with high-speed image acquisition and processing. A wide range of models, including line scan and colour systems.
Whether performing a single profile measurement or scanning an entire surface in 3D, we have the most powerful and robust 3D machine vision tools. Manufacturers in all industries trust our technology to deliver high accuracy surface feature measurements that go beyond the capabilities of 2D machine vision technology.
Our vision software provides access to the industry’s leading vision tools in a format designed for any development need. All applications benefit from the broad-based, industrial-grade toolset. Choose between a programmatic or graphical interface to get the industry’s most robust tool library.
A series of industrial, image-based barcode readers decode 1-D and 2-D codes, from printed labels to the hardest to read direct part mark (DPM) codes and deliver industry-leading read rates. The barcode readers can help reduce costs, increase throughput and control traceability.
Barcode verification is the process of grading the quality of 1D, 2D, and direct part mark (DPM) codes. An increasing number of regulated industries require barcode verification.
Barcode Readers & Verifiers
Fixed-mount Barcode Readers
Vision-enabled barcode readers, with the ease of use and cost of laser scanners, our fixed-mount barcode readers offer unmatched 1D and 2D code reading performance. Advanced technology, processing power, modularity, and ease of use make our barcode readers the ideal solution for challenging manufacturing and logistics applications.
Handheld Barcode Readers
Our handheld barcode readers provide the best-in-class performance for direct part marking (DPM), 1D and 2D label-based code applications. Rugged housing, the latest patented technology and modular communication options make our handheld barcode readers are ideally suited for the harshest manufacturing and logistics environments.
Barcode verifiers offer guidance through the marking process to create codes which meet minimum quality standards. Cognex barcode verifiers use high-quality optics, advanced algorithms, and simple software to demonstrate compliance with industry-standard guidelines.
