Simple viewing camera added as key feature to ImageFlow

Low cost matrix camera added as integrated viewer on a printing press

Often an inspection systems resolution is perfect for automated feature detection, but an operator may need to see some items in more detail or have a different view. ImageFlow supports the integration of a simple matrix camera as a viewing option.

The example below shows how one was added to a printing press so operators could view tiny register marks in more detail.

Trend Graphs now standard in ImageFlow

Trend Graphs can be useful for process control

Trend Graphs in Imageflow allows real-time display of metrics that can be used to monitor a key measurement or quality index for a complete run. The graph below shows the web width and total number of defects plotted versus the machine direction of a job.

ImageFlow 6.7 Released - New tools for converters

Building machine vision solutions can be complex. OneBoxVision's approach is to work with customers to specify the correct solution and to implement the feedback once installed. The more we spend with operators, the more we learn.

The image below shows two buttons that can be used to tag defects. Ignore allows an operator click on a defect and mark it as OK to ship and to stop the system alarming each time it is detected. This can be the case in Flexographic operations where there is a small plate defect that is not a reject. You can also flag a defect as critical and flag to for removal in a later process.
