Intelligent machine vision systems

Boulder Imaging

Boulder Imaging is releasing the first Quazar Vision Inspector, a new line of high performance machine vision systems. Developed from evolving customer requirements and market research, this line of intelligent machine vision systems is designed to monitor high speed manufacturing machines and processes, inspect 100% of parts for defects, and perform micron level measurement of parts. "The Vision Inspector line provides the most comprehensive, flexible, and integrated machine vision solutions available," says Carlos Jorquera, Boulder Imaging's CEO and founder.

The Vision Inspector line consists of three different machine vision products: The Guardian, the Benchmark, and the Beacon. Each system can be implemented individually or integrated to provide a comprehensive vision solution for the entire manufacturing environment.

The Guardian provides system monitoring to ensure that machines are functioning within desired specification.

The Benchmark provides detailed part measurement for quality control inspection; it can be used for first article inspection, reverse engineering, spot inspection, or measurement of 100% of parts. The Benchmark's utility extends further by providing detailed reports for customers and for ISO compliance.

The Beacon is an "in-line" high performance parts/web material inspector. Beyond simple pass/fail, the Beacon can segregate and categorize defective parts. In addition, stop-points in production can be implemented to allow the production manager or process engineers to identify and correct problems in real time.
