Vision system costs justified for high value items

Related tags: Cost

Vision systems provide a cost-efficient approach to inspecting the fill consistency of beverages and the quality of their packaging, claims Dan Rossek, product marketing manager at automation specialist Omron.

Vision systems are generally used for higher value products, for example, verifying serialised 2D codes on labels to fight counterfeits. In a recent project, this feature enabled counterfeit bottles of cheap wine labelled as expensive Italian wine to be successfully detected.

However, depending on the process and application, there are a number of hurdles to overcome in terms of technology and cost. For example in high speed processes, where the detection and image processing speed is critical.

In other applications having several inspection points on a bottle demands the use of multiple cameras pre-processing these different camera images into a single image for evaluation can be crucial for some manufacturers. Price pressure can also present a significant hurdle.
