Another way the manufacturer accomplishes this goal is by helping customers master the latest application techniques.

A valuable tool
There are many companies interested in automating their production line’s visual inspection process using vision sensors, but don’t know where to start. Keyence’s Machine Vision Academy can help. This section of the company’s website features free, downloadable guides that provide professional image processing solutions for factory automation. From basic to advanced, there’s a technical guide to satisfy any level of application knowledge.
Basic: This level includes three guides that cover CCD (pixel) and image processing basics, lens selection basics and its impact on image processing, and logical steps for illumination selection.
Intermediate: This level includes three guides that cover effects of a colour camera and various pre-processing functions, principles and optimal settings for visual/stain inspection, and principles of dimension measurement and edge detection.
Advanced: This level includes three guides that cover understanding the position adjustment system to accurately inspect moving targets, and how to get optimal results from image processing pretreatment filters.
A leading expert
Keyence can provide this knowledge because it has been a leader in sensing technology since 1974. Its Machine Vision Academy is aimed at helping customers correctly apply vision technologies; however, the company’s sales engineers have the capability to provide comprehensive support, as well. This help comes at every level of business, from the design and research stage, to model selection, line operation with onsite instructions, and after product adoption.
