We’re looking for a solution to photograph bearings and shafts 7 and 3mm dia respectively after applying grease or adhesive during automated manufacturing. Photographs are close-ups (macros) and require focus stacking. Results are stored for later use in order to diagnose end of line tester and others.
Hi Michael, Although we do not provide solutions, we do offer an interesting sub-system for your required focus stacking. See here for more details: https://www.vision-systems.com/articles/print/volume-23/issue-7/departments/technology-trends/fpga-based-system-enables-real-time-extended-focus-imaging.html Please feel free to contact me at 1-888-808-3670 x101 if you have any questions.

Can you suggest a book or articles for those with no technical that explains how computer vision systems work?
Hi Ruth, I know of no non-technical Computer Vision books but it can be summed up non technically as follows: Computer vision is the art of combining illumination, optics, filters, cameras, image acquisition and image processing techniques (processed via CPU, GPU, and/or FPGA processors) to make automated decisions (be it for quality control, autonomous driving, assisted medical, etc). I hope this helps. Best regards, Mike
