There are a number of areas in which machine vision systems are being used to great effect. What are these?
In this post our AIS experts take a look at some of the machine vision uses across various different industries along with a brief explanation on the type of machine vision that is being used.
Before we list these, it is important to explain what machine vision companies are. The companies that provide machine vision solutions can be divided into hardware and software providers. There are also companies like ourselves that provide full solutions and more information on this can be found by visiting our machine vision page on our website.
What Industries Can Machine Vision Work Well In?
All Industries: Production, quality control, and predictive maintenance is something that machine vision can be used for across all industries.
Healthcare: In the healthcare industry there are a number of different machine visions system applications that are being used. Ultrasound scanning, keyhole surgery, and skin cancer detection are just some of the examples of where you will find machine vision systems being used.
Logistics: When it comes to logistics, two important areas are Automated Data Capture (ADC) and Automated Inspection (AI). These help with verification and the control of products. With machine vision systems you can automatically identity objects, collect data about them, and have it automatically inputted directly into your computer system. QR codes, barcodes, and RFIDs are examples of Automated Data Capture systems.
Auto Industry: Machine visions systems can be used in the manufacturing of cars. Dimensional gauging is a method used in the production process and machine vision systems help by calculating the distances between points or different positions on an object to determine whether the measurements are correct and meet the specifications required. Machine vision also allows for robotic guidance which is often used to place parts onto a vehicle during the assembly process. Another area in which machine vision systems are working in the automotive industry is in presence-absence checking.
These are just some of the areas and the applications that machine vision systems can help with and for more information on any of the processes or uses of machine vision in your business you can get in touch with one of our AIS experts. We are always happy to answer your questions and guide you to the right product for your business.
