Vision Quality Control Systems – the concept

Autor artykułu Krzysztof Malowany

A vision system is a solution designed to convert images into information, which is based on machine vision. Properly calibrated and tailored to the type and characteristics of the products it is supposed to inspect, it scans them, picks up deviations from a pre-programmed ideal pattern, and then automatically removes them from the production line. What it is and why it works effectively.

Vision systems in quality control - what, wherewho

A vision system is a solution designed for processing images into information, which is based on machine vision. It consists of a system of cameras operating in a 360-degree perspective. The machine system captures the image, and a computer and software interpret it accordingly. Properly calibrated and adapted to the type and characteristics of the products it is supposed to inspect, it scans them, picks up deviations from a pre-programmed ideal pattern, and then automatically removes them from the production line.

The spectrum of application of vision systems is very wide, as it covers many industries. These systems can be successfully installed on production lines in the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic or construction industries. Examples include food quality control, quality control of cosmetics, quality control of packaging or even such detailed operations as quality control of defects in front boards.

Industrial vision systems are equipment dedicated to companies that are looking for solutions to increase the efficiency of production lines and improve quality control. These devices are used wherever high productivity and verification of multiple variables are required.

Advantages of quality control vision systems

The use of vision systems during quality control on production lines brings a number of benefits and advantages. First of all, it supports the operator during the inspection, and sometimes with the use of state-of-the-art technology it can replace him. This is due to the automation and robotization of systems and thus the elimination of the human factor during inspections. The system consists of a sophisticated computer with databases, which makes it possible to collect and generate progress reports and automatically report defects to production managers.

Industrial vision systems are based on a system of cameras operating in a 360-degree perspective, thanks to them it is possible to record images of products without defects and carry out inspections of subsequent batches on the basis of an ideal pattern. An additional advantage is to conduct instant measurements and detect defects.

Vision quality control systems have very different applications. The principle of operation on the example of the KSM Vision System nut inspection analysis is shown in the photo below.

Benefits of implementing vision-based quality control systems from KSM Vision

Quality control vision systems from the KSM Vision team are all about an easy and intuitive interface that allows great flexibility in setting quality control parameters. You can inspect in terms of shape, color, dimensions and a number of other parameters of objects in no time. The modularity of the system, which allows configuration and expansion according to the individual needs of individual companies and their production lines, will certainly prove useful.

Vision quality control from KSM Vision is all about speed of measurement with simultaneous precision by eliminating human error. This is because the work of the hands is replaced by process automation resulting in cost reduction and time savings regarding incorrectly performed quality control. No less important is the ability to perform measurements without having to stop the production line when product defects are detected and to automatically remove them without interference from third parties. Quality control systems from KSM Vision are also comfortable to use and service.
