Machine Vision Lasers

Machine Vision Lasers are the laser sources utilized in a machine vision system, which, for example, can be comprised of a laser source, camera, software for data collection and analysis, and feedback for automatic or manual adjustments, or simply throwing a warning light or even stopping the system.

What is Machine Vision?

Machine vision refers to the process of utilizing active imaging technologies to automate inspection and analysis for process control and robot guidance in industrial applications.  Machine vision lasers are used as structured lighting in many image processing systems, offering several exciting opportunities for automation and quality control.  These lasers are used to detect defects as well as to measure diameters, edges, gaps, etc..  This enables automated systems to subsequently measure and align them, including the spatially contorted and oddly shaped objects.  These lasers are typically beam shaped into lines, dots, and other geometric patterns (such as crosses, circles, and grids) and they can come in a wide variety of wavelengths and powers depending on the systems requirements.  On this page, you will find a list of all of the full range of lasers we offer for these applications.

Machine vision is defined as the substitution of the human visual senses and decision-making ability, by image acquisition and computer analysis to perform an inspection task.   This process is most commonly utilized as an active imaging technology to automate inspection and analysis for process control and robot guidance in industrial applications.  As automation has become more and more prevalent in the manufacturing sector, machine vision technology has rapidly grown into one of the largest markets for laser diodes around the world.  Just as with all automation technology, although it started in the factory setting, machine vision has rapidly been making its way into field-deployable technologies as well.
