Machine vision products are advanced computer systems that are able to perform image processing operations. Machine vision systems allow narrowly defined automated tasks to run at greater speeds and precision than manual operations. The optical component of the machine, such as a digital infrared camera, is able to recognise patterns and convert this information into data. They can be used as a standalone product but often are integrated as a component in an automated process control system.
Applications for machine vision systems vary from the inspection or counting of goods along a processing line to detecting surface features on object. These applications are useful to maintain accuracy and a high level of quality assurance for manufactured products. Due to their limitations, machine vision systems are best used in repetitive operations with low variability in materials.
