Advantages of special lenses for top and side inspection vs multi-camera systems
Opto Engineering® developed special optics designed to solve many machine vision applications such as OCR/barcode reading on bottles and containers or defect detection inside threaded bores require to inspect features randomly located both on the part outer or inner sides and on the top and bottom surfaces.
The most common solution is to use multiple cameras in order to achieve several side views of the part, or using a line scan approach, both with various issues. Sometimes you have to rotate the sample which makes everything very complex and expensive.
Among the advantages of using our special lenses are the use of a single camera for top and side views instead of a multi-camera system and the absence of the need to rotate the product. Which makes the system lean, simple and less expensive.
