EVT releases EyeSens ColorInspect for industrial colour and comparison inspection tasks.
EVT has introduced EyeSens ColorInspect, a vision sensor for the inspection of colour-based quality characteristics. The integrated EyeVision software with commands for colour inspection verify coloured objects with high accuracy with speeds of up to 60 frames per second.
The EyeVision software is very precise, which means that the software can not only detect colour print errors, but also recognise missing components and assembly groups which do not match. Meanwhile, the hardware around the sensitive core is robust and imperturbable. The vision sensor levels out vibrations or fast movements of the machine in the production line. With IP67 and the integrated LED illumination in the camera housing, the camera is suitable for harsh, industrial environments.
With EyeVision, colour control and comparison can be controlled by the software, which provides valuable information for the production flow in many ways. In many industrial environments, the colour control is an important part of the whole quality control process, because some products cannot be sold with colour flaws and can also lead to returns from the customer. And this not only concerns the objective recognition of colour deviations, but also relates to the subjective effect of colour. For example if the color is applied to different base materials, a colour variation effect can occur. And it is quite difficult to prevent colour variations inside tolerable borders. With the EyeSens ColorInspect, EVT has come close to a 100%-quality control of colour variations in image processing.
The software immediately detects the smallest colour defects and also low contrast and contamination such as when checking lacquer for car body construction, when checking the colour of metal parts in the automotive industry or even when checking the colour sequence and quality of multicore cables.
The applications are also almost endless, because colour inspection can be applied in various industries such as the pharmaceutical, electronic, food and beverage, automotive, print and paper industries.
Also, the handling of the vision sensor is very easy. Due to the integrated illumination, this is a plug-and-play camera with industrial standards. And also the creation of inspection programs is easy due to the graphical user interface and the drag-and-drop programming.
