Once the sensors capture the object’s response to the energy source, image processing takes over to manipulate the raw data to extract and categorize information about specific features.
As the bridge between raw data and our customer who ultimately defines the accept/reject thresholds, image processing is a two way street in which raw data flows from the sensors and good/bad definitions flow from the customer. The art and science of image processing lies in developing computerized routines that improve the effectiveness of the operation while presenting a simple user-interface to the operator.
At Key, our G6 Vision Platform provides a powerful foundation for the most sophisticated image processing in the industry. SmartSorting and SmartCutting introduce object-based recognition that allows for more intelligent accept/reject decisions to be made. And KeyWare® Application Software provide the user with controls and sorting capabilities that each specific application requires.
