Wavelength Conversion SheetMaking possible inspections with back lights in locations where it was difficult to install back lights

Wavelength conversion mechanism

Combining the wavelength conversion sheet, blue LED light, and blue cut filter create an absolutely new lighting technique that can be used to realise back light images with reflected light.

With only the ambient light

This is the image obtained when a white workpiece is placed on top of both the wavelength conversion sheet and a white sheet.

Install a blue bar light.

This is the image obtained when the blue light is emitted. The white background and the white sheet are imaged in blue. The waveform conversion sheet converts the blue light to an orange colour tinged with red and reflects this colour.

In addition, install a blue cut filter on the lens.

The blue cut filter cuts out the reflected light in the blue range, and only the light from the wavelength conversion sheet enters the lens. In this way, an image like that captured of the white workpiece with a back light is obtained.



It’s difficult to route cables when embedding light in a moving stage, but there are times when the contrast with just reflected light is insufficient. By using the wavelength conversion sheet, it’s possible to realise back light images without any wiring, which makes stable detections possible.

Using only blue reflected light

The contrast for the alignment mark is insufficient, so stable detection is not possible.

Using the wavelength conversion sheet

The contrast obtained is equivalent to that of images captured with back lights, which improves the alignment precision.

Liquid surface inspection

Assume that there is no space to install a back light when performing liquid surface inspections at a filling machine, so a front light has to be used instead. Even if the light is installed in a narrow space, back light images can be realised by wrapping the wavelength conversion sheet around the rotating object.

Using only blue reflected light

Due to the effect of the reflection from the workpiece surface, it is not possible to obtain a stable view of the liquid surface.

Using the wavelength conversion sheet

Only the liquid surface is clearly imaged as a back light image, which makes it possible to perform stable liquid surface inspections.

There may be foreign substances on the surface of the wavelength conversion sheet. However, even if such substances are present, the product is still within the inspection standards, and these substances do not indicate that the product is defective.
