Paper Abstract

Modern machine vision systems won't require task specific hard- or software development in most cases. This means for the user short project realization times and minimized cost. Changes or new controls can easily be performed by a trained operator. Hard and software design of such a system is described in this paper, followed by two different applications, which were realized exclusively by menu-guided configuration of the built in set of control methods. The first is an in-line inspection of oven linings. To protect the following machine tool from being damaged, presence of holes and slits have to be controlled. Via serial communication, a host computer gets detailed information about the faulty item and the position of the defect on the lining. The second application describes an in-line inspection of brake pads. To ensure the lining is mounted to the correct side of the carrier, some characters on the carrier side have to be detected. According to the result the system triggers a turn over mechanism.
