Edge inspection tools

  • 01-Mar-2010 05:08 EST

In-Sight Explorer 4.4 software for Cognex’s In-Sight vision systems adds color tools, improved calibration, and expanded data access within its EasyBuilder configuration software, while it expands support for larger line scan images. The software also introduces InspectEdge tools for detecting edge defects and inspecting edge pairs. The tools give users flexibility to solve vision applications that rely on accurate edge detection, such as finding dents in can lids or edge cracks in solar wafers. It finds gaps and defects in both straight and circular-shaped edges, and it can inspect the width of features for gaps and defects by tracking multiple edge pairs. Support for irregular shapes enables better performance on challenging width inspections such as glue beads. The graphical user interface simplifies inspection setups and gives users greater flexibility to define defect criteria, such as size, area, and distance, as well as the ability to specify outliers for noise elimination.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
