Specialized in 3D Systems
3D systems in optical inspection offer possibilities for capturing shape, location and position. However, the use of 3D technologies requires many years of experience, as the complexity of image acquisition and evaluation should by no means be underestimated.
As specialists for 3D laser triangulation systems, stereo cameras, time-of-flight sensors and depth-from-focus systems, we know the differences and possible uses in order to find the best solution for the respective task.
- 3D camera systems to locate objects for palletizing and depalletizing tasks
- Position and location detection for robot systems
- Volume determination of objects
- Shape inspection of products in X/Y/Z
- 3D surface inspection
- 3D font reading: OCR application for raised labels on e.g. tires, cast parts, ceramics
3D Systems for the Optical Inspection
Laser line triangulation is ideally suited for moving objects with diffuse reflective surfaces to capture shape and position. Stereo cameras are used for the 3D position detection of parts with sufficient surface texture, which is mainly used in robotics for 3D gripping tasks.
Time-of-flight sensors have a lower Z-resolution than other sensors at around 5 mm, but offer a large detection volume with a Z range of several meters. The latter is particularly interesting for palletizing and depalletizing tasks, but also, for example, for determining the volume of cardboard boxes.
Particularly small components can be tested with our specially developed ZFokus®-Camera.
