Stemmer Imaging will be showing its new hyperspectral imaging capabilities at Photonex. This innovative technique utilises the near infrared absorption behaviour of organic objects to reveal chemical composition information. Also on show will be a multi-camera packaging inspection system.
Hyperspectral imaging opens up innovative new inspection possibilities for machine vision users. Based on an intuitive, configurable data processing software platform from Perception Park that makes the scientific methods of hyperspectral analysis readily accessible to everyone, Stemmer Imaging´s hyperspectral systems allow the identification and separation of substances based on chemical information. This is not possible using conventional colour or monochrome imaging. Hyperspectral imaging has applications in industries as diverse as pharmaceutical, medical, food processing, recycling, mining and wood processing and for document inspection.
A multi-camera packaging inspection system will also be shown to determine print quality, read alphanumeric and barcode data and check fill-level as boxes pass underneath. This demonstration will show how cameras with different interfaces (USB3 Vision and GigE Vision) and varying resolutions can be combined to meet different inspection needs.
