TwinCAT Vision – Machine vision easily integrated into automation technology

Automatic detection, traceability and quality control of products are becoming increasingly important tasks across all stages of production. These trends are aided by inexpensive cameras and high-performance computers, which enable the use of image processing technology in more areas than ever before. Image processing has several advantages over visual inspection by humans, especially for quality control purposes. Optical inspection based on image processing can be carried out in a highly repeatable and deterministic manner. Measurements of parts down to the micrometer range, which are almost impossible to perform for humans, can be implemented easily.

Measurement during the process

In order to increase workpiece precision and process reliability, the workpieces can be measured directly in the Imoberdorf rotary transfer machines.

Industrial probes aid research in space

As a result of new developments in the theoretical knowledge of the very smallest particles on the planet, some physicists are now calling into question the principle of equivalence of inertial and gravitational mass into question.

Improving quality of treatment for patients

Quality assurance is vital for accurate production of patient-specific joints and prostheses, therefore Baltic Orthoservice uses a multi-sensor CMM and laser scanner in conjunction with a micro-CT system. The multi-sensor CMM is used for fast surface and screw hole inspection of the 3D-printed implants. The XT H 225 CT system is used to guarantee internal structure quality and geometrical accuracy between CAD implant model and manufactured implant. The combination of these technologies enables Baltic Orthoservice to achieve the best accuracy and highest quality for a wide variety of medical devices.
