A smart approach to vision inspection and code reading

Author : Stand A26, PPMA Show, NEC, UK, 25-27 September, 2012

07 September 2012

STEMMER IMAGING, Europe’s largest independent supplier of vision technology and services to OEMs, system Integrators and reseller markets, will be showing a comprehensive range of vision systems at the PPMA Show.

System capabilities will cover applications as diverse as 3D measurement of product volume to optimise packing and reduce packaging waste; product and packaging inspection and code and label reading and verification.

Many of the demonstrations will feature cameras from STEMMER IMAGING’s extensive portfolio of smart cameras. These will include the BOA, BOA Pro and BOA IDR cameras from Teledyne DALSA and the Gocator 3D camera from LMI Technologies Inc. With on board image processing, these cameras need no additional PC.

The entry level BOA smart camera is supplied complete with iNspect Express, a comprehensive set of click and apply inspection, measurement and positioning tools to satisfy a wide range of industrial inspection tasks, while the BOA Pro has the powerful Sherlock software on board for even greater flexibility. BOA applications include a wide range of product and packaging inspections for product quality and packaging integrity.

BOA and BOA Pro do feature 1D and 2D code reading and verification capabilities, but the BOA IDR is a dedicated code-reading version of BOA, which allows manufacturers to combine 1D and 2D tracking with other inspection tasks, such as character reading (OCR) and feature verification, to ensure all product markings are correct when they leave the factory floor.

The ability of the Gocator 3D to measure product volume and other 3D components such as surface flatness and groove measurements open up host of new inspection applications. Product volume measurements allow the contents of cartons and containers to be optimized to avoid wasting valuable space. Groove measurement?can be used wherever grooves are essential to a product’s performance such as plastic container lids. Surface flatness measurement is ideal for web applications such as paper or plastic film production.
