Does anyone have any data available about the market size / OEM share / channel dynamics for factory automation & logistic vision systems? Am looking to better understand the largest players in the space, long-term growth dynamics, and the role of distributors and integrators within the space. I have seen the general market size data that Cognex puts out, but looking to go a layer deeper. Appreciate any help here.

I am doing a simple tape and shake mold inspection. The molds are ceramic. I cover the opening with blue tape. I shake the mold and if there is a defect, white flakes fall out and stick to the tape. there is significant contrast between the white flakes and blue tape. is there a system that could count the number of flakes. That could measure the size of the flakes and give me a distribution of flakes per size brackets?

Hi, does anyone here have experience with imaging LSR (Liquid Silicon Rubber)? In our application we are over molding a polycarbonate insert with LSR . We need to detect LSR flash on the polycarbonate insert that can be less that .001in thick. We have three different colors of polycarbonate, but, I am currently working with orange. The LSR is translucent. I am currently unable to differentiate between the LSR and polycarbonate.

Hi I am having an issue where our GigEV transmitter we are trying to develop is correctly being discovered, and connected to. Once the stream settings is updated and the stream enabled I can see on wireshark the GVSP data is coming in fine with no errors and the leader, data and trailer packets is there without errors. But we cannot seem to get this displayed on a host player. We are using eBus Player from Pleora technologies to test. But once the acquisition start command is called I see no image or any update in the stream statistics counters, not even in errors. So I am a bit confused on how to debug further. The destination address and port is fine, the resolution and packet size is fine, the payload size is fine. Is there any more in depth testing software that I do no know about?

Having an issue of image capturing not refreshing after any action on inspection options defined. At first it starts normal, if it found any odd object it asks for action then if I choose any accept or reject imaging stops, if I restart application it works. The application was working fine earlier, what could be causing the problem?

I have 6 aia AD-080 GE Camera a miried of cables, shutter driver, wagos , synquinet plc, ssystec electronics sysworxx CANopen, and a large amount of other imaging related hardware and software I acquired at a industrial auction. I am interested in setting up a inspection system to view coin and paper currency for the purpose of documentinting and grading the items. I have a degree in automation but without the accompanying wire diagrams I do not k ow what would be required for a simple stationart manual imaging table. How can i find out what works best with these cameras ie wago vs synquinet etc? Do you have any simple drawings or materials involving simple instalations avaable for the public?

I have an application in which I would like to tap into the transmission of video from an automotive controller to an LCD screen to insure the data displayed on the screen matches the stored image. This will not include a camera but will require capture of the data from the controller. Has anyone developed an application similar to this? My counterparts in other areas of my company have done this but with specialized equipment designed to work with their video chips. I want to accomplish this with standard HDMI, DVI, and even VGA transmissions.

I was testing a telecentric lens that allowed a fiber optic light source to be inserted in its side. When testing the lens with the fiber optic light source my image got washed out with a grey color, adjusting gain and offset did not help. When I used an external light source with the same lens and camera I got a normal image. The supplier was unable to tell me why my image turned grey with this light. They were able to tell me the lens, camera, fiber optic cable and light source are compatible. Has anyone else experienced this issue and have information on what caused it/how to correct it?

Hello, I was looking through a lot of GigE Vision compliant cameras and I could not find one camera that support All-In packets. Could you provide a manufacture that do ?

I am working on a report on applications of machine vision. I came across terms like "Voxels over Raster Grid" and "Point Clouds", when I was reading about improvements in Machine Vision functions. I am a mechanical engineer and I want to have some basic idea what these terms mean in respect to machine vision. Also how are Embedded Vision and Computer Vision different from Machine Vision.

Good morning, I am carrying out experiments on fish behaviour and for that I need to be filming the trials. In the past I have used CCTV cameras (one at each side of the tank where the fish are) and even though the quality is good, I require a single camera with a wide range to capture the whole tank from above. I have also tried a GoPro 3 hero, and the range is good, yet the image quality is not the best under the low light conditions of the room and I can't spot the fish when watching the videos. The room is illuminated mainly with red lamps. I would like your opinion on this - which type of camera I should be looking for and preferably with a software that allows controlling the camera through a computer/tablet. The tank is 7 metres in length and the ceiling above it around 3 metres high. Thank you!

Hi, i have an application where I need to carry out colour inspection. How to handle such task? What kind of cameras and machine vision algorithms do you recommend? So far I have found out that comparing RGB values is not a good way.

We are a manufacturer that prints on continuous web whether it be opaque but mostly clear. The prints can consist of hundreds of designs and unlimited ink colors since we are a custom made to order company. These production runs could last for short period of time ~10min or anywhere to multiple hours. From my experience with vision and the challenges we produce we are trying to find a print inspection solution where the software could easily learn the print with minimal operator involvement and inspect the material for print defects such as print voids. Some challenges to know is that we do not having any registration marks on our product so it is a continuous web print could be within 54-62" wide. If anyone has any solutions or ideas please let me know, thanks in advance!
