The combination of machine vision inspection equipment and motion control brings a new vitality to the upgrading of industrial automation production line. It is also more and more used in non-contact detection and measurement scenes to improve processing accuracy, find product defects, and conduct automatic analysis and decision-making. Therefore, machine vision inspection equipment plays an important role in automatic production line.
Visual inspection is a branch of computer vision. The visual control or visual application in the field of industrial automation mainly refers to the extraction of relevant information from the collected digital image by the front-end optical camera, which is used to control the process or quality of the production line after analysis and processing, so as to replace the repetitive manual operation.
Compared with the traditional manufacturing processing mode, the automatic production line can ensure the stability, consistency and uniformity of product quality, save materials and energy, and improve the competitiveness of products. It can also be used in the work under the environment of high temperature, noise, dust, toxicity, radiation and danger, so as to reduce the labor intensity of workers and improve the labor productivity.
For equipment manufacturers, in order to improve the production efficiency of automatic production line, the need for upgrading manufacturing line is urgent, and the application of machine vision inspection equipment has become one of the key points.
In the process of using machine vision technology, it can be found that machine vision and automatic control often belong to two different systems, which may lead to the instability of the whole system due to communication and other factors. Especially in the current multi variety, small batch and flexible production mode, the frequent replacement of production lines increases the modification and debugging time of machine vision system process, which greatly affects the production capacity of the factory. Therefore, the stability of machine vision inspection equipment and the convenience of operation are the core technologies that can meet the requirements of automatic production line in the future.
