New vision inspection software uses images from four cameras to create one seamless 360° image of the surface of printed or labeled bottles, cans, vials, or cosmetic containers without the need for orientation or accurate positioning.

New vision inspection software uses images from four cameras to create one seamless 360° image of the surface of printed or labeled bottles, cans, vials, or cosmetic containers without the need for orientation or accurate positioning. OmniView from Cognex Corp., Natick, Mass., can read barcodes, verify text, inspect graphics, and measure features at line speeds up to 1200 parts/min. Obtaining such an image with conventional systems requires stopping and rotating each cylindrical object in front of a line-scan camera—a process that is both complex and too slow for high-speed production lines.
