System Integration Questions

Question Asked:

I'm looking to inspect flat sheet metal patterns. Ideally i want to take a picture with the sheet metal pattern on a light table, a software to detect the edges then compare this with a dxf or 2D electronic drawing of the part, complete with GD&T. Are there off the shelf solutions for this, or software which imports pictures and gives the user the ability to generate a report for the part?

MVTec's software package, Halcon, can do this in 2D and 3D. You can get more information by going to our site www.pyramidimaging.com and selecting MVTec under the Manufacturer's area. We can get you started with a 30 day free evaluation copy of the software. It is meant for programmers but the HDevelop tool is available for rapid prototyping and can give non programmers an idea of what operators can be used. We can also provide software programming as a service for you. The task that you are outlining above should not be too complicated. Please contact us at your earliest convenience. Feel free to forward some images if you have them. Cheers!

Nasir, We have a solution similar to this that could be tuned for your purpose. We have a tool scan inspection system, where tools are scanned on a light table, and then CAD data is produced for cutting the foam that tools are placed in inside the tool boxes. If you would like to discuss further, please give me a call, my info is below.
