Defect detection tools increase your inspection options
John Stamos, 08-28-2012
Defect detection tools in the Cognex vision tool library include InspectEdge, Flexible Flaw Detection and the Bead Inspection Tools.
Here's what InspectEdge does to improve vision performance:
InspectEdge finds edge based defects that include cracks along the edges, deviations in edge position and gaps. It can also find defects associated to the widths of a part by finding the minimum and maximum widths.
InspectEdge provides robust, repeatable inspection results despite changes in part orientation and allow you to easily classify defects by size, area and distance or width.
This tool is effective on straight or circular parts.
Next time, I will discuss the Flexible Flaw Detection tool.
