Software is a fundamental tool to design, build and operate a vision system. During the initial design process, software can support mechanical modeling and simulate the expected behavior of optics and lighting, allowing to identify potential flaws in the system at an early development stage. In the installation phase, software verifies that all imaging components work smoothly together, also enabling perfect sync with other parts of the system such as conveyers, robotic arms and motion devices. Lastly, software is essential to correct, process and analyze images, ensuring that the output of the vision system satisfies the inspection requirements. Opto Engineering® products are the foundational elements of any vision systems and software is the final piece of the puzzle,making all parts of the system work together cohesively, reliably and efficiently.
