This tool recognises characters printed or stamped on a product. To cope with printing conditions constantly changing on site, KEYENCE has put utmost emphasis on visualising important factors for character recognition such as character extraction, stability and character library.
With grey-scale processing that does not use binary processing, stable inspection is ensured even if ambient light changes. In addition, the character extraction method is used so that the user can understand recognition conditions easily.
"Character extraction", the most important factor for character inspection, is now visualised with waveforms. The user can determine "stability" instantaneously since these waveforms can also be checked during operation.
Reads the 1D/2D codes printed on the target workpieces. Since code reading and inspection using another image processing tool can be done simultaneously, this function leads to space saving and cost reduction compared with conventional cases where 1D/2D code readers and image processor are installed separately.
