Novel Lighting for Today’s High-Speed Machine Vision Challenges

Presented by: Steve Kinney, Smart Vision Lights

Around the world, businesses of all types must find ways to innovate and keep pace with customer demands. Industrial automation technologies have been a reliable means for businesses in industries including automotive, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and e-commerce to meet those goals, but as needs evolve, these businesses are tasked with finding ways to accelerate their processes.

Speeding up an industrial automation system requires more than just fast cameras; however, it also requires advanced lighting, which is necessary for high-quality image acquisition. This presentation looks at the role that machine vision lighting plays in these systems, while highlighting some of today’s most challenging high-speed machine vision applications and how lighting designs have adapted to help bring these high-speed applications to life.
