High Speed Machine Vision Inspection

Integro Technologies designs and develops custom, high-speed product inspection systems.

Machine vision integrators can solve a customer’s high-speed inspection problems, but what does high-speed inspection mean?

Any machine vision system that must run at rates above 30 fps is considered a high-speed application. Most people think of high speed as an object or production line that processes hundreds of units per minute. The products can look like a blur to the human eye moving along a production line.

But what really makes these applications “fast” isn’t the speed of the production line, but the processing requirements the production line places on the machine vision system.

Time is a major consideration. Acquiring and processing an image in less than 20ms translates to high speed, implying frame rates ranging from dozens to hundreds of fps.

The unique considerations of high-speed machine vision systems include careful design of multiple aspects of the system, from image capture and digitization, to analysis, reporting and decision-making commands as well as data for downstream action.

Bottling and web inspections are two of the most common examples of high-speed applications.

Integro Technologies is a principal source for machine vision industrial applications such as high speed inspection, color matching, robotic guidance, cap and color inspection, quality checking, 3D topography imaging, and ID verification.

3D Micrometer Inspection

Using a 2.2 micrometer-sensitive 3D laser mounted to a 3-axis robot, several high-definition images are acquired and combined to generate a 3D point cloud.

This 1GB image is generated using key corner points to overlay 3D data from scan-to-scan.  Inspection consists evaluating 20,000 individual pin locations across each of 8 pin grid groups. Each pin is less than 100 square micrometers in size, and only 360 micrometers tall.  In addition to planarity, the inspection checks for x-y location, rotation, and pin deviation to within 10 micrometers. This entire process occurs in 90 seconds.

Tire Guardian

The Tire Guardian is a combination of two different machine vision applications that can be used individually or in sequence to assure tire assembly quality from the most common non-compliance issues.The Tire Guardian allows the automotive industry to use the most reliable and cost effective inspection methods to adhere to DOT regulations, while improving the quality of the overall tire assembly.

The first machine vision application is the DOT & Bead Seam Reader, which recognizes (OCR), verifies (OCV) & documents all DOT information located on the sidewall of the tire.  Within 15 seconds, the profile sensor projects a laser light across the surface of an automobile tire profile from the bead toward the tread.  When the profile sensor is applied to the bead area of a rotating tire the sensor digitizes the circumferential band that contains the DOT Code, Mold Code, E-Mark Code, or other molded-in features.
