Material Analysis - USB 3 uEye LE

Mobile system for testing composite materials with USB 3.0 uEye LE camera

Connected in quality

The combination of two or more materials often creates unique properties. Particularly beneficial qualities of the components can be emphasized and combined. For this reason, industry likes to use composite materials. However, the inhomogeneous structure of the material must also be taken into consideration. During machining, for example, fraying and chipping can occur on bores or milled edges. The portable optical inspection system from Math & Tech Engineering GmbH with an integrated USB 3.0 camera from IDS automatically detects and evaluates specific processing errors. This ensures better reproducibility of the measurement results and enables accurate documentation.

The final touch

For companies in the automotive industry, quality management and process management are of great importance. The conditions placed on original equipment manufacturers and suppliers are immense in order to ensure high quality and continuous improvement, waste reduction and error minimization. Particular attention is also paid to the interior of a passenger car, as it contributes greatly to the "feel-good atmosphere" for the driver. To ensure perfect seating comfort in the vehicle, manufacturers place correspondingly high demands on the foams to be processed: they must be adaptable and flexible, resistant and durable, but also have a good feel and appearance. But high quality standards must always go hand in hand with economic efficiency.

Automation - Ensenso N35

Bin-Picking application with Ensenso 3D camera boosts productivity

Recognised. Picked. Packed.

Short cycle times, little scrap, minimal stock-keeping - the factory of the future is networked and highly economical. An important component here is industrial image processing. A specialist in this field is Pose Automation GmbH based in Germany. This system integrator develops high-tech systems for machine vision and robotics. One example is a bin picking application for gripping catheters for veterinary medicine, equipped with an Ensenso 3D camera from IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH.

Automation - Ensenso N35

Efficient inline component inspection for the manufacturing industry with Ensenso N35

3D precision in line

Quality assurance plays a very important role in manufacturing companies. It is an important instrument for creating efficiency and transparency. In the factory of the future, an ever-increasing amount of measurement data will be generated for this purpose. Complex correlations can thus be recognized more and more quickly, valuable quality data can be obtained and processed in order, for example, to avoid errors in the future. With the development in Factory 4.0, however, the demands placed on quality standards in the manufacturing industry are also growing.

Robotic - uEye LE

Inspection robots – with USB uEye LE

In the service of safety

Rough and inhospitable, extremely hot or cold, fire or explosion hazard. Robots for routine and ad-hoc safety checks in unmanned systems are used wherever people are reluctant to be present. ExRobotics B.V., based in Halsteren, The Netherlands, is a leading expert in this field. Their products replace the sight, hearing, smell, touch and hands of their users. The Dutch manufacturer relies on image processing with industrial cameras from IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH.
