Vision Systems (Quality Control)

Vision systems are used to inspect products for defects, measure dimensions and identify objects. They can be used in a variety of industries including manufacturing, food processing, and healthcare. At Scotia, we’re proud to use Keyence Vision Systems and Sensors in everything we do.

Vision systems can be used to improve quality control by:

  • Colour/product type inspection to check for differences
  • Quantity inspection, verify the presence and number of components
  • Positioning and alignment, check the final product is assembled correctly
  • Dimension measurement, verify products
  • Robotic vision guiding, report coordinates to robots to allow for pick and place of items.

How They Work

Machine vision systems designed for quality inspection monitor the visual appearance of the observed material. Using various sensors, the system automatically identifies potential defects in the material’s surface and classifies the defects into groups based on similarity in contrast, texture and/or geometry.

The Benefits

Some of the benefits of using vision systems for quality control:

  • Increased speed: Vision systems can inspect products much faster than manual inspection.
  • Increased accuracy: Vision systems can detect defects that would be missed by manual inspection.
  • Reduced costs: Vision systems can help to reduce the cost of quality control by reducing the number of defects and the need for manual inspection.
  • Improved consistency: Vision systems can help to ensure that products are consistently produced to the required standards.
