8 Solutions to 8 Problems

e-News@KEYENCE
Static Keeps Coming Back
Problems: adhesion of foreign matter or film sticking together, maintenance is troublesome too.
Solutions: select a durable static eliminator from different types (bar, spot or blower) to fit the worksite.
Oh no, Quality Expectations are Increasing
Problems: during analysis, surface is reflective, irregular or fractured, taking a long time for analysis.
Solutions: large depth of field, free-angle observation system & real-time depth composition.
Detection is Just Not Stable
Problems: vision sensor is hard to set up, and results always vary from one person to another.
Solutions: reduce setup time to 1 minute, automatic brightness and focus adjustment for stable detection.
Measurement Errors Every Time
Problems: minute uneveness on the target surface causes scanning resolution, leading to measurement errors.
Solutions: use a wide spot type sensor or a displacement sensor capable of high-speed sampling.
100 Image Processing Tricks Learned from Actual Stable Detection Examples [Preprocessing Edition vol. 1]
·Canceling diffuse reflections/uneven lighting
·Canceling differences between workpieces

Check out this guide to learn about these and other tricks. It contains information on the types and uses of "image enhancement filters," which are vital to perform stable inspections.
Taking Way Too Long!
Problems: using at least 5 minutes to measure the coordinates of different measurement points one by one.
Solutions: change to automatic measurement regardless of the position and orientation of your parts.
Engraved Parts Looking Bad
Problems: using the wrong type of marking equipment results in low quality and contrast marking.
Solutions: select appropriate marking machine and fine tune pulse frequency or parameters.
Safety Sensor Can't Survive
Problems: breaks down easily in rough and harsh environment, recovery time is also slow.
Solutions: find design that is robust and highly heavy-duty.
