Vision systems

Industrial vision control market.

The vision control systems industry has been growing rapidly from many years. The basis for this development is the requirements of the industry: stricter quality standards, automation of processes, minimization of errors, recording of inspection results in databases. Therefore, at the base of many production lines, you can find a vision system, which is a control of product quality.

The capabilities and effectiveness of vision system applications have increased significantly over the years. The first systems were sometimes unreliable, image processing algorithms allowed only basic operations, so the whole process of vision verification was relatively slow and inefficient. This state of affairs was due to the low computing power of these devices.

With the development of automation and, above all, technology, the computing power of devices has increased significantly. Systems designed for parallel analysis of images have been developed, the possibility of implementing algorithms is incomparably greater than ever before. The solutions that vision systems offer now are not only simple shape analysis, but also advanced image recognition algorithms, which are used in robot control for palletizing and part segregation.

Cognex provides inspection and identification solutions basically for all sectors of the manufacturing industry. Cognex vision system offers products for the following industries: industrial automation, automotive industry, in the production of consumer products, electric vehicles industry, food industry, pharmaceutical industry, logistics, solutions for the production of components for the solar industry, tobacco industry. The Cognex vision system also works well in the aerospace industry, for the production of electronic assembly equipment, document processing and printing, the life sciences market and product safety.

Examples of key applications of Cognex vision systems:


Deep Learning / deep machine learning solutions

One of the Cognex’s latest solutions for use in factory automation processes is Deep Learning / deep machine learning. VisionPro’s innovative Deep Learning tools are designed to work in manufacturing environments. A combination of artificial intelligence (AI) and In-Sight or VisionPro software, navigating the application management environment is facilitated by a user-friendly graphical interface.

Deep learning technology uses artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to teach robots and machines what comes naturally to humans: learning by example.

Increasing efficiency in production is a task where new technologies, including the use of artificial intelligence, undoubtedly have their place.

Cognex Deep Learning was designed with factory automation in mind. Its field-proven algorithms are optimized specifically for machine vision, with a graphical user interface that simplifies neural network training without compromising performance. By combining artificial intelligence (AI) with In-Sight or VisionPro software, it automates and scales complex applications for part localization, assembly verification, defect detection, grading and mark reading inspection that were previously too demanding for traditional machine vision.

Cognex’s Deep Learning solutions extend the limits of computer and camera inspection.

Applications that previously required vision expertise can now be solved by non-vision experts. Deep learning technology shifts the logical burden from the application developer, who develops and scripts a rule-based algorithm, to the engineer training the system. In this way, deep learning makes it easier to work with machine vision while expanding the boundaries of accurate inspection.

From the phones in our pockets to the reality of self-driving cars, the consumer economy has begun to harness the power of deep learning neural networks. The same technology is now moving into advanced manufacturing practices for quality control and task automation. But before entrusting an AI-based system to make critical decisions, such as defect detection, it must undergo robust testing and validation. Cognex is facilitating this process.

We have outlined the differences between Deep Learning and traditional machine vision solutions in this comparison.

Machine vision technology enables operations that require the kind of reliability and regularity that humans cannot achieve. It helps increase quality and production efficiency by eliminating defective parts, inspecting assembly and tracking and capturing information at every stage of the process. Errors can be minimized, which contributes directly to lower production costs and higher customer satisfaction.

In many industries companies rely on vision sensors to perform simple pass/fail, go/no go inspections. By using a vision sensor products and packaging are error-free and meet strict quality standards.
