Computational imaging technology has found its way into industrial automated inspection, where the creative use of illumination components has emerged as an enabling technology providing valuable imaging capabilities.
While x-ray inspection of electronics has existed for several decades, the continuous shift in electronics design and manufacturing to smaller, more dense products, is driving x-ray technology forward.
The simple shaft is one of the ubiquitous items in every mechanical system. Shafts contain a number of key functional elements, such as splines, tapers, grooves, threads, cams and gears, which all have associated critical dimensions to allow these mechanical systems to perform the function for which they were designed.
The cameras, lenses and illumination used in a machine vision system all make significant contributions to the overall quality of the images that are produced. The rapid developments in CMOS image sensor technology over the last few years have created significant challenges for lens manufacturers.
