      Ind. Inspection Robots See (Pun) a Bright Future on the Assembly Line

    The following story explains how and why machine vision applications have broken through a mental barrier and now assist on the assembly line. Vision-capable machinery is delegated more responsibilities owing to flexibility, functionality, reliability, and trust. More Luddites?
    "A couple of demonstrations that GE Fanuc set up in its booth at the International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago really showed how useful machine vision (MV) can be in machine-tool applications. In one demonstration, MV-guided robots moved parts along a simulated processing line that included milling and deburring stations. The second used two synchronized robots to assemble a gear box."

      Ind. Inspection Machine Vision for Foreign Object Detection

    n application is described below, which is used to discriminate between objects in the production line. In this particular case, a more mission-critical task is involved as unwanted objects must be identified among foods reliably. As often us the case, this potentially raises liability debates. Robotics have an indirect impact on human health, which is definitely not unprecedented.
    21 July 2005 -- The Georgia Tech Research Institute has been building a computer-vision system that identifies plastic and other unwanted elements in finished food products.


    GTRI’s innovative inspection tool combines computer vision technology with sophisticated color discrimination algorithms. The computer-vision system, which sits above the production line adjacent to metal detectors, is first trained to identify the conveyor belt background and desired characteristics for the food product. This information is stored in the computer’s hard drive, and as the product moves along the conveyor, the computer-vision system captures digital pictures and analyzes them. If the system sees an object it doesn’t recognize, it records the digital image and activates an alarm and kick-off device that removes the product from the line.

      Ind. Inspection Looks Beyond Inspection

    27 June 2005 - Mark Hoske of Design News:
    Depth and diversity of applications show machine vision's strength beyond its dominant use for inspection. Also, overall purchases are expanding.


    Top applications are inspection, bar-code reading, motion control, gauging, and robotics. Largest growth from 2004 to 2005 occurred in motion control; continuous processing; verification; diagnostics, testing, maintenance; SCADA; machine control; CNC equipment; as well as discrete product manufacturing.

      Ind. Inspection Vision systems increase performance, lower cost, get easier

    26 May, 2005 (Control Engineering) -- Machine vision systems relying on more open architectures are easier to incorporate into more applications, offer higher levels of performance, and are more economical to use, according to recent Control Engineering research, backed up with comments from those working with and developing the technologies.
