What is a Vision System?

Vision systems are now considered to be an essential part of many industrial processes because they can offer fast, accurate and reproducible inspection capabilities at a highly competitive cost.

For instance, in the food industry where vision technology plays a crucial role for processes where speed and accuracy are extremely important and helps to secure a competitive advantage for manufacturers. The food product itself is inspected to aid portion control and quality as well as the packaging and labelling of each product. Also, the pharmaceutical market requires the most demanding vision systems that not only inspect products, but also audit the systems use and configuration, ensuring the correct drug and dose are delivered with full traceability.

There are basically three main types of vision systems: smart cameras; compact vision systems and PC-based systems.
