The vision of industrial image processing
Industrial image processing has become an important impetus for increasing the level of automation in production processes and is widely regarded as one of the key technologies for Industry 4.0. Image processing makes many other processes more effective and efficient, increases product and process quality and reduces manufacturing costs.
In the future, there will hardly be a machine or production line that uses non-imaging sensors, as intelligent image processing systems are unbeatably precise, fast and extremely reliable in many applications. Many complex measurement and inspection tasks can be solved surprisingly easily using 2D and 3D image processing.
In quality control and product identification, it has become just as indispensable as in process control and monitoring. With the help of modern image processing systems, you can meet today's demands on quality, cycle time, safety and traceability (track & trace) in an economical way.
Errors or deviations in individual production steps can be recognized directly in the processing cycle by means of image processing. This opens up completely new possibilities for correcting process parameters on-the-fly and, thus, coming one step closer to zero-defect production.
This is also shown by the following example of hose processing: At a drilling station, an automatic fine adjustment of the drills is achieved by means of image processing.
