For barcode reading, label verification, and presence detection, traditional 2D machine vision fits the bill. But for increasingly complex imaging applications — especially where greater resolution is needed or where materials that are difficult to image are inspected — 3D imaging offers advantages.
As we learn in this issue’s cover story, “Laser Triangulation Tackles Imaging Tasks Big and Small,” from SICK’s Mattias Johannesson, the electronics industry is a prime example. The trend toward miniaturization in electronics has meant components are half the size they were only a decade ago, putting greater demands on vision systems. In this case, 3D vision — which often involves multiple cameras…READ MORE
