The identification of damage and embossing on surfaces has never been more reliable.
Cognex´s new technology uses lighting and software algorithms to create high-contrast images that highlight raised and recessed features and defects and isolates them from the surface background. The optimized images can be inspected through the use of best-in-class vision tools. As a result, not only embossed and recessed texts or codes are better identified, but also surface defects such as holes, tears, notches or wrinkles. Surface FX ™ technology simplifies the detection of defects and codes on surfaces with low contrast to the background and optimizes the visual inspection of parts. The technology can be used in industryspecific surface inspections in a variety of industries for:
- Identification of defects on surfaces
- Isolation of 3-dimensional features
- Identification of parts
- Tracking of parts
How does SurfaceFX work?
To identify three-dimensional features, the parts are illuminated from four different perspectives.
SurfaceFX analyzes the resulting reflections and shadows, combines the results of the light sources and creates a high-resolution image that highlights the recessed or raised features. The raised features are white and the recessed features are displayed in black. These high contrast images can be used for further inspections for locating codes, edges and other features.
