Vision inspection system for testing and inspection solutions
ST Robotics’ STVS-X is an advanced vision inspection system designed for automated and accurate handling, testing and inspection solutions of critical parts. The STVS-X is developed to address the need for tighter fault detection and quality assurance in the manufacturing of high precision components. An ST robot arm picks up the part to be inspected and rotates the part in front of an Epix SV5M10 high resolution camera. Measurements can be made down to 0.001 mm resolution. Two basic modes of operation accurately measure defects at a high rate of inspection validity. The golden image comparison in which the part is compared to a known good part whose image is stored in the computer. Defects are seen in the comparison images and the robot separates the reject parts. The other mode of operation uses critical measurements in which the robot positions the part from many different angles while the inspection system takes measurements of critical dimensions and compares them at a precise level.
