Systems using optical, video and computer hardware for automated inspection and measurement in production environments.
Borescopes are optical inspection tools that consist of a rigid or flexible tube, an eyepiece on one end, and an objective lens on the other. They use optical relay components to transfer images of bores and cylinders from a tip to an eyepiece.
Fiberscopes are flexible borescopes that use fiber optic technology, an eyepiece at one end, and a lens at the other to inspect bores and cavities. They house fiber optic bundles in a flexible tube that allows users to change the viewing angle or navigate curved paths.
Frame grabbers are image processing computer boards that capture and store image data for industrial applications such as quality control.
Illuminators are used to provide adequate contrast for imaging. Illuminators include backlights, LED illuminators, and fiber optic illuminators.
Image processors includes the hardware and/or software that translates data into dots or pixels in a printer or image setter.
Imaging Spectrometers are instruments used in hyperspectral imaging and imaging spectroscopy to acquire spectrally resolved images.
Imaging workstations are vision systems used for metrology or image analysis in laboratory and cleanroom settings.
Machine vision systems are used for automated inspection and measurement in production environments.
Scientific imagers are high resolution systems used to capture moving or still images.
Videoscopes are equipped with a CCD chip and focusable lens assembly that relays images from bores and cavities to a display. The camera is embedded in the tip of the scope and uses CCD technology rather than optical relay components (borescopes) or fiber optics (fiberscopes).
Vision calibration targets are precision test samples or patterns that are printed or etched on a substrate of glass or other material for dimensional calibration and depth-of-field determinations of machine vision systems, cameras or microscopes.
Vision sensors are industrial products that automate decisions and processes by the use of video cameras linked to application-specific software on a user interface. These are also known as machine vision systems, and are useful for measurement, pass/fail decisions, and inspection.
