How can Industry 4.0 help overcome quality and process issues?

IOT for machine vision networks 

Industry 4.0 thinking and the industrial Internet of Things are transforming manufacturing and industrial operations through deeper visibility, greater connectivity and enormous potential for improvement.

Companies using Industry 4.0 based principles are finding that they bring people, processes and equipment together, from vision sensors and smart cameras to entire machine vision systems. Connectivity deepens operators’ understanding of events and sharpens decision-making. The proliferation of smarter end points, data analytics, scalable computing, mobility and visualisation are reshaping the future of industrial automation.

Understanding the lens used for your vision solutions

Choosing a lens for your 100% inspection system

It's one of the key elements of any vision system. It determines the physical size most machine vision solutions. It can determine the quality of the inspection systems results. It can make or break an application and we have found that few people understand the fundamentals.  We will look at the basics of lens selection and explain the significance of each tolerance. We will examine the following:

    • How the aperture works.
    • Depth of field
    • Focal length

Reduce the cost of machine vision systems

Machine vision systems are in essence industrial IT solutions. Often when purchasing this equipment, the project engineer is used to buying a machine, such as a coater or an extruder and categorizes the inspection system as a machine also. 100% inspection solutions are completely solid state. There are no moving parts or consumables. Let's look at the anatomy of a vision system. What are the key components?
