I have a number brand new LED machine vision lights that I would need to sell. I have numerous ring lights (including dark field), spot lights, Light lines, coaxial, and diffuse dome illuminators. I would prefer to sell the whole lot for a bargain price. Does anyone have a suggestion as to who might be interested or where I might be able to sell them?

I am looking for an inexpensive system that I can use to measure and do capability studies on printed parts. We have two needs: 1) Occasionally measure a single part quickly. By measure I mean to measure the distance between two lines or edges. 2) Do capability studies on a production process that is aimed at finding the causes of variation between two lines on a printed part. This would entail measuring up to about 30 parts at up to about 16 places. This would be occasional use so an inexpensive starter system would be ideal.

Do USB3 high speed data lines need to be crossed such that: Computer Camera TX+ to RX- TX- to Rx+ I'm thinking that the crossing of these signals occur on the camera such that when a straight through cable is connected, the crossing of the data lines is accomplished. Or, what is the pinout of a USB3 camera with micro B receptacle? Thanks.

We are examining the capabilities of vision systems to perform blemish inspections on molded plastic bottles and are seeking to understand the achievable results within the realms of repeat-ability, reproduce-ability, and stability. Are there any published guidelines or whitepapers that address the art of the doable within the industry?

Hello, I have a GigE camera from THE IMAGING SOURCE and I need to build a program in c++ in Linux that can communicate with the camera, change settings ( iris and exposure time ), capture an image and saving it to a specific place. Firstly I need one library to do my job and secondly I will need some help building the program.

What system would you recommend for inspecting complex laser sintered metal parts made in additive manufacturing equipment. Surface finish will be typical of parts made in this process and we are looking for accuracy in the micron level with 10% gage r and r. Parts will have thin walls, and 2 cubic inch size. Cycle times in the several minute range are acceptable with least sensitivity to ambient light. Currently OGP light based systems are available to us in house but are looking for improvements/advantages.

Dear Experts, I'm looking for a system containing camera (high resolution e.g. 4 MP) and computer system where software should be devepoped and run in real time context. Date transfer rates should be min. USB 3.0 or even higher. Also SDKs like OpenCV or HALCON should run in real time context. Means there are pretty many integration aspects and dependencies that make things complex. Also operation system and computer hardware are important issues. If there's any advice you can give I'd really appreciate. All the best, Olaf Schmidt

Hi, I have been using a PCI framgrabber card for video acquisition and used to process the video for real-time object recognition. Now we are planning to shift to external framegrabber by Pleora iport framegrabber. This captures video from analog video source and converts to GigE, which in turn is connected to the PC via network switch, and run object recognition algorithms on the video. Is this a good option for real-time video acquisition and processing for pattern recognition tasks? Are there any frame drops in this setup? Does GigE Vision software handle this kind of data and provide processing libraries for object recognition tasks? Please advise. Thanks and regards.
