Machine Vision Laser Modules for process and quality control
Published: 2 January 2016 - Lisa Peake
LASER COMPONENTS’ Flexpoint Machine Vision laser modules are continually being adopted by engineering companies to produce 3D images and models of their components for quality control purposes such as process improvement and automatic defect analysis
Used in conjunction with a camera system, the Flexpoint Machine Vision laser series can increase production throughput as well as decrease repair times and quality defects by providing the user on-the-fly metrology data which can also be saved for future reference and use.
Our wide variety of modules is expanding, with the newest addition being microcontrollers; providing the user complete operating flexibility when specifying parameters such as optical power and modulation frequency. This handy feature also provides parameters such as module power consumption and temperature data.
The Flexpoint MV series is available from 405-905nm, including 450nm, 520nm, 532nm, and 785nm, and with optical powers up to 100mW (wavelength dependant). Multiple options can be included such as analogue or digital modulation, manual potentiometer power control, and custom housing sizes.
