INSPECT.assembly Automated Visual Inspection System

Description

Radiant Vision Systems, a leading provider of high-resolution imaging solutions for automated visual analysis of devices and surfaces, announces the release of the INSPECT.assembly system, a new turnkey automated visual inspection station for in-line assembly verification. The INSPECT.assembly is fully-integrated with Radiant technology and configured to precise tolerances to meet production-level inspection needs of complex electronic assemblies. The INSPECT.assembly system detects the presence, position, and integrity of components including screws, cables, connectors, and other critical features before final device enclosure to automate assembly inspection.

 

Radiant’s new INSPECT.assembly system is a turnkey inspection station that employs ProMetric® Y imaging systems with camera resolution (up to 29 megapixels) and dynamic range (above 70 dB) far exceeding the specifications of typical machine vision systems. Applied in photometric measurement of light and color in displays and backlit components, ProMetric cameras capture fine-detail images with a level of precision that rivals human visual acuity. Because INSPECT.assembly is fully-integrated with Radiant camera, lighting, fixturing, and software, Radiant engineers are able to design each INSPECT.assembly to match the specifications of each customer application. This advanced vision technology solves critical inspection challenges through a combination of the image registration & analysis functions of the camera with proprietary machine vision “super tools” in INSPECT Software, which blend multiple machine vision software algorithms in a single tool to enable comprehensive analysis of specific features. For instance, a tool can be engineered with the unique algorithms required to locate the routing path of a cable to ensure that it is properly seated around guides on a board-based assembly.



Radiant’s new INSPECT.assembly system rivals human visual acuity and judgment for detecting defects while quantifying visual data for automated operations, bridging the gap between human and machine vision inspection for the most challenging assemblies. Occupying the same physical footprint as a human operator on the line, the INSPECT.assembly system easily rolls onto moving conveyers, adjusting to heights from 525-950 mm. The system features a touch screen for results monitoring, adjustment of inspection tolerances, and part changes. The system’s INSPECT Software is pre-configured with multiple inspection tool recipes specific to each part, enabling adaptability to line changeover. The system also offers reporting functionality, barcode reading, and data output for traceability of inspection results and process control to improve operations for reducing product returns and recalls.
