Machine vision passes inspection on the production line

March 27, 2009
Vision sensors, in contrast to traditional photoelectric sensors, help machines inspect, analyze, and reject faulty parts.

Sensors are a critical part of industrial manufacturing processes, optimizing productivity and quality by detecting faulty parts before they leave the production line. While traditional photoelectric sensors analyze and interpret data from just a single point, vision sensors can provide a comprehensive alternative solution for more demanding applications.
