Pattern Recognition and Quality Control
Our Micro Production Systems include video cameras and a Server PC with a vision software for pattern recognition. With this software the position and orientation of an object can be detected and many procedures for quality control are included. The vision PC can read any kind of video signals, also from an Electron Microscope when it offers such a signal.
The vision software is able to recognize objects in a 2-dimensional field of view. Pattern recognition algorithms find the contours of objects in the image and quickly identify each objects position and orientation. Klocke Nanotechnik included this vision system into a server software that communicates with the process control software on a client PC by Ethernet:
The position of the found object is transferred by
Ethernet to the client PC responsible for the process control. In the
process control software the complete vision system can be remote-controlled
easily. Within a sequence of commands the vision system is activated by
opening the following window:
The camera can be selected by name, as well as the
taught object that shall be found.
