Smart camera inspects labels at high speed

January 2005
Vision Systems Design;Jan2005, Vol. 10 Issue 1, p16
Focuses on the smart camera from Analogic Computers installed by Jakob Müller GmbH in one of its label-cutting machine to identify faults and trigger the system to reject faulty labels on its fabric items. Remarks from Robert Fakete, sales and marketing manager with Analogic, on the obstacles needed to be overcome in the design of a machine-vision system; Ways used in the detection of defects on labels; Actions taken by Analogic to develop the image-processing algorithms.
