Reduce waste and increase customer satisfaction by combing 2D and 3D imaging
The power and flexibility to solve challenging machine vision applications in a PC environment
When it comes to shoe inspections, manufacturers have multiple challenges. First, the manufacturer needs to verify both the product and the package. And solving this unique challenge requires both 2D and 3D vision capabilities. The inspection system must be able to detect:
- Intact, readable labels
- Match between shoe size and the box label
- Presence of both shoes
The Power of Dimensional Inspection
The In-Sight 3D-L4000 was recently deployed in the inspection process for a high-end shoe designer. The In-Sight 3D-L4000 smart camera with embedded In-Sight software offered 2D and 3D tools with quick setup and easy integration for accurate, repeatable results.
2D images, using traditional blob location algorithms, ensured that labels were readable and matched the product, while 3D edge, blob, and volume tools verified both box and shoes sizes.
Additionally, with its precise volume data, the In-Sight 3D-L4000 determined whether both shoes were in a box, as well as verifying shoe size. By ensuring that the “right” shoes found their proper packages, the manufacturer was able to reduce waste and improve customer satisfaction. This 3D solution is expanding the limits of what is possible to accomplish in short turnaround times in advanced 2D and 3D consumer product applications. With advanced smart camera solutions, such as the In-Sight 3D-L4000 which combines new approaches to 3D imaging while also delivering 2D image trails, manufacturers have a powerful new tool for solving complex applications in consumer-packaged goods technology.
