Many of our systems integrate vision. Our controls engineers are experts at helping you choose the right camera, illumination method, and image processing software for your specific project need.

Vision provides numerous benefits in an automation system, including reduced error rates, increased productivity, and a higher level of worker safety. Image-based guidance helps robots pick and place objects with precision, manage variable parts without changeover or fixturing, and guard against collisions in close proximity environments.

Aspect Automation’s vision expertise encompasses:

  • Positioning of camera and/or object for effective imaging
  • Determination of pertinent qualities to be assessed for an imaged object
  • Processing of acquired images and determination of subsequent actions
  • Methods for relaying key acquired data to operators and data management systems

Aspect uses vision to:

  • Determine quantity, location, position, and orientation of objects
  • Detect presence or absence of objects
  • Detect color of objects
  • Guide robots in operation and proximity sensing
  • Inspect objects for:
    • Dimensions
    • Tolerances
    • Defects
    • Alignment and orientation
    • Edge shape and sharpness
    • Presence of unwanted materials
    • Fill levels
