Machine vision is a broad industry term for using visual data to perform many functions including; measuring, sorting, locating, and reading parts under inspection. These functions require skills beyond software development, such as: the choice of the correct camera, selection of the right lens for color and focus, as well as, installation of lighting. Further consideration must be given with the mechanical handling of parts under inspection.
JET Engineering has experience in all aspects of a complete machine vision application including:
- In-line production inspection station with sorting
- High-speed counting
- Robotic pick and place
- High accuracy measurements
- Tracking using barcodes and OCR
- Industrial embedded vision
JET Engineers utilize NI Vision Development Module and NI Vision Builder for Automated Inspection, coupled with a common test framework to quickly prototype, build, and integrate the project. In addition to machine vision, JET Engineering’s extensive background in production test and automation enables the tight coupling of machine vision applications with other aspects of the system, including the correlation of images with data acquisition or motion control.
