System architecture

Custom design & development

Machine vision always begins with a well-integrated system. Regardless of your industry, which markets you serve or which special application you want to create, we will help you design and develop a system tailored to meet your requirements.

In developing the most efficient solution for a given task, there are typically a number of initial questions whose answers can provide valuable information in the selection of appropriate system components.

For example:

  • What resolution is required?
  • What are the measurements of the objects involved?
  • What are the cycle time parameters?

In this way, we can begin to get an idea of the inspection type and task involved. As the process continues to develop, other considerations may also become important:

  • How will the image data be processed?
  • Will the image data be saved as-is or will it be processed and analyzed?
  • Will you be able to integrate the components yourself?
  • What are the ambient conditions and user typology?

This process enables us to systematically refine the specifications of your application. We can then begin to suggest the appropriate components (i.e. hardware, software, lenses and lighting) that would deliver the desired imaging capabilities. Hardware and software development services are also available.

We will work with you to meet any machine vision challenge; regardless of whether it's a 2D or 3D vision solution or simply an application with demanding specifications. Our experienced interdisciplinary team has created thousands of machine vision systems - from pure image capture and archive applications to the precision measurement (10 µm range) of machine parts.
