Find gaps and defects in straight, circular, and irregularly-shaped edges
- Track edge contours for minimum and maximum positions and width
- Inspect edges and edge pairs for defects, gaps, and extreme points
- Get line and circle fits to located edge points
- Identify irregular paths
The InspectEdge tool finds defects around the edges of parts where normal defect detection tools cannot operate. It does all this by defining a region of interest, laying down calipers throughout the search region, and returning edge candidates for every caliper based on contrast and edge width. It also compensates for normal process variation and light intensity variation.
