Cognex In-Sight Laser Profiler

April 11, 2017

In-Sight Laser Profiler and VC200The In-Sight™ laser profiler is a measurement system used to verify that a part’s dimensions meet specifications. The In-Sight laser profiler is configured using the In-Sight EasyBuilder user interface.  This intuitive, easy-to-use software makes it simple for manufacturing and quality engineers to develop, deploy and support high accuracy measurements on the factory floor.

  1. Accurately acquire profiles
  2. Easily extract features and construct reference points
  3. Perform correct and repeatable measurements

The In-Sight laser profiler generates an accurate 2D profile of an object along a laser line.  The 2D profile provides precise geometric information that can be sued to verify that an object is defect-free and meets specifications.  The In-Sight laser profiler is easy to use and factory calibrated to ensure accurate and repeatable measurement results.

Cognex SurfaceFX Feature Extract Technology

September 15, 2016

surfacefx-setupSurfaceFX (Surface Feature Extract) is a product that utilizes an algorithm which highlights surface features regardless of whether they are engraved, etched, embossed, dented, punctured, stamped, or raised. Once contrast is created in the image, Cognex’s industry leading vision tools (OCRMax, PatMax RedLine, Blobs, InspectEdge, etc.) can easily inspect the part.

SurfaceFX utilizes a 4-segment quadrant controlled light and a Cognex IS8000 or IS5705 Series camera.  It uses reflections and shadows from the different angled lights to determine the surface structure.  The Cognex algorithm combines images from different light sources to create the resulting image.

SurfaceFX Applications:

Detect Small Defects including; chips, dents, wrinkle, puncture, tears
Creates Contrast between the surface and engraved, embossed, stamped, etched, or raised features

Cognex 2DMax with PowerGrid Technology

August 29, 2016

Combining texture and shape for best-in-class 2-D code reading

Successful DataMatrix code reading is reliant upon the finder and clocking patterns being intact, along with a quiet zone around the code. If these essential elements are damaged or obscured, the barcode reader is unable to identify and decode the symbol from the other markings on the product or packaging.

Cognex has overcome this limitation with PowerGrid™ technology. This patent-pending 2-D code-reading algorithm combines both textural and geometric data to enable the highest DataMatrix code read rates.
