In line with the trend of mass customization to satisfy changing consumers’ needs, different products are more often produced on a single line, which requires quality inspections of products in different colours and sizes. To carry out such advanced quality inspections in flexible production, it is crucial to minimize downtime for changeover to different products.
Equipped with a multi-colour light and an autofocus lens, the FHV7 Series can respond flexibly to changes in the colour and size of objects to be inspected. This eliminates the need for special skills for camera installation and adjustment to cater for different products and inspection criteria, even in a flexible production line where many different types of products are produced in different quantities. A high-speed image compression algorithm compresses inspection images at double the regular speed, enabling all image data to be saved even during measurement and allowing complete traceability in production processes where quality control is paramount.
The autofocus lens covers a focal length range from 59 to 2,000 mm, it can be parameterized through software to accommodate for products of different sizes. The camera's modular structure allows users to freely combine the lens and light with the camera.
