Cognex Corporation leader specialist in industrial machine vision, introduces the In-Sight D900 Color. Featuring Cognex’s deep learning software inside an In-Sight industrial-grade smart camera, the D900C solves a broad range of complex in-line inspection applications where color imaging is an essential component. Whether in consumer-packaged goods or in the food and beverage industry, there’s a chance at some point manufacturers will have to inspect a liquid product that is the same color as the bottle it is contained in. Without the use of a color image an inspection system might not realize the liquid is spilled out because it blends into the container (photo 1).
“Color is an important distinguishing feature for many assembly verification and defect detection applications,” said Carl Gerst, Senior Vice President of Vision and ID Products at Cognex. “The In-Sight D900C furthers Cognex’s mission to expand the range and breadth of inline inspections that can now be automated quickly, easily, and more cost-effectively.”
In-Sight D900 Color is ideal for packaging, food and beverage, medical and consumer products
Combining the self-learning ability of a human inspector with the robustness and consistency of a vision system, the In-Sight D900C expands the limits of what can be inspected in factory automation. The system, which can be setup using a small number of image samples, leverages Cognex’s familiar and easy-to-use spreadsheet platform and does not require a PC or deep learning expertise to deploy.
The In-Sight D900C is ideal for automating color dependent inspection applications across a range of industries including packaging, food and beverage, medical devices, automotive, consumer electronics, consumer products and logistics.
