Omron Automation Americas released its new FHV7-series smart camera with an all-new multi-color light and high-resolution image sensor for advanced vision inspections on high-mix production lines. This technology is designed to achieve the industry’s highest standards of precision in vision inspections on high-mix production lines, according to the company
Consumers’ quality and safety expectations are becoming increasingly strict, and corporate social responsibility is growing in importance. Manufacturers face the need for stricter quality control checks in order to maintain and improve product quality and safety while promptly identifying the causes of defects. The need to produce different products on a single production line is also increasing, and this in particular requires quality inspections of products in different colors, shapes and sizes. The FHV7 smart camera is designed to help manufacturers meet these inspection needs while minimizing downtime for product changeover.
High-performance smart cameras like the FHV7 make it possible to easily adopt vision inspection into flexible manufacturing processes. Equipped with a multi-color light and an autofocus lens, the FHV7 can respond flexibly to changes in the color and size of objects to be inspected. This eliminates the need for multiple cameras or manual lens adjustments and ensures compatibility with wide-ranging inspection criteria on lines producing many different types of products in varying quantities.
