A software library featuring camera-guided wafer positioning has been released by Vision Components GmbH for its Smart Camera family. The software enables camera-supported production monitoring and quality control in solar wafer production, provides optimized positioning functions and offers a comprehensive robot guidance solution. It features measuring accuracy below 2 μm, providing precise, tried and tested hand-eye coordination. Processing times below 1 s are ensured for several regions and objects. Measuring accuracy and repeatability are not affected by difficult conditions, and object edges can be sorted by thickness and perpendicularity. The software library is suitable for various camera models.
