Manual inspection can be slow and notoriously inaccurate, with many features not reliably detectable even by the most detail-oriented staff.
ProSensus specializes in machine vision systems outfitted with the ideal combination of hardware and software to accurately measure and log product quality.
A machine vision trial, using ProSensus’ trial equipment, is a logical first step in determining hardware requirements and project feasibility.
The camera(s) for any application is selected based on the features that need to be quantified.
Colour image features: visual defects, number of products per image, number of defects per product/image, size of defects, product grade rating
Thermal features: minimum, maximum, average, standard deviation (per product or per image), temperature distribution, identify blisters/cold/hot spots
3D features: product surface area, product height/depth (for tolerance assessment), void detection
Hyperspectral: concentration of active ingredients and non-visual defects
Flexible Trial Equipment
Our trials are a fast and cost-effective way to validate an investment in machine vision. ProSensus has a flexible, portable trial system that can be shipped to our customer’s site to rapidly demonstrate the value of a machine vision solution. The dimensions of our trial system are shown below.
Effective Trial Steps
- You tell us what quality measurements are important to you.
- We determine if colour, thermal, 3D imaging, or a combination is best for your application.
- We bring our machine vision demo system to your plant and take high quality images at-line, in real-time, demonstrating the capabilities of the technology.
- Finally, we provide a report summarizing what features can be extracted from the images and next steps.
