At the UKIVA exhibition, Machine Vision specialist Anthony delivered a presentation on simple machine vision applications. If you missed it, keep reading below.
OEM offers a wide range of machine vision equipment. If you are new to the technology, you may benefit from reading the below article, which explores how quickly a simple machine vision application can be set up and used.
Most people have simple requirements that require robust and straightforward solutions. An example of this is a bottle cap orientation and position application.
Using our OEM water bottle, Anthony demonstrates detecting whether the bottle cap is open or closed using the Datasensing Smart Vision Sensor.
The solution implemented will most likely depend on:
The simplest solution is to use a photoelectric sensor, combined with Opto-proximity and background suppression, mounted above the opening using simple digital I/O back to PLC. Using this solution is the most simple way to detect the bottle cap.
A better solution to detecting the bottle caps would be to use a smart sensor. The Datasensing (formerly Datalogic) Smart VS Sensor is a simple solution ideal for this kind of application.
The smart VS sensor is one small self-contained unit with the following features:
Watch the videos below to see how the smart VS sensor works for the bottle cap application.
The smart VS camera is more flexible, powerful, and simple to set up.
