Illumination geometry

Working principle

A bi-telecentric lens observes the object from four different positions through a mirror assembly, ensuring that the optical path is the same for all four view points.

The four views are equally spaced by 90° and partially overlapped, obtaining complete coverage of the object lateral surfaces.

The system can thus tolerate off-centred components without any significant decay of the image quality thanks to the telecentric optics, which ensures that magnification is maintained in each image segment. The system is designed so as to allow components to pass unobstructed through the mirror cage, for in-line applications.

When TCCAGE system is used for in-line inspection, consider the following minimum distance “d” between two consecutive objects in order to avoid image overlapping:

TCCAGExx048 d (mm) ≅ 25 + ∅ object / 2
TCCAGExx096 d (mm) ≅ 50 + ∅ object / 2

Additional port

TCCAGE is provided with an extra port placed right above the object. This port can be used to inspect the top of the part using an additional lens and camera system (for example a PCHI hole inspection lens, a macro or TC lens). The port can also house other types of illuminators.

Illumination geometry

TCCAGE series integrates both direct and backlight illumination. Direct illumination (yellow cone in the drawing) is provided by a ring illuminator placed on the top of the part that can be used to enhance surface defects.

Back lighting (indicated by the yellow arrow) is obtained by means of a diffuse source which illuminates the object through the mirror system; this type of illumination is suggested for measurement purposes or to inspect transparent objects.
