Machine Vision Helps Adhesive Trend Stick in Auto Industry
Machine Vision Helps Adhesive Trend Stick in Auto Industry
Business has been getting stickier for Ron Weber, president of USS Vision, a Livonia, Mich., machine vision integration and automated inspection system firm. As automakers race to meet federal regulations that call for higher fuel-efficiency standards — 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025 — his firm is seeing more vehicles with body parts joined with adhesives. In recent years, that trend has translated into 11 percent annual increases in the adhesive bead inspection business offered by USS Vision, whose customers include GM, Ford Motor, Chrysler and Toyota.

Imaging Technique Enhances Face Recognition in Variable Lighting Conditions
Imaging Technique Enhances Face Recognition in Variable Lighting Conditions
A novel technique manages the effect of lighting on photometric-based human face recognition through a fuzzy-based illumination invariant method. The technique, named OptiFuzz, uses an extended reflectance model to adjust the effect of lighting on human faces, thereby improving face detection and recognition results under a variety of illumination conditions.

Laser Additive Manufacturing
Thu, Jan 12, 2017 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST
Join us for a free webinar! Wayne Penn, applied physics consultant and former president of Alabama Laser Systems, will provide an introduction to laser additive manufacturing (LAM) and open source 3D printing. Penn will discuss ways in which 3D printing is being used in additive manufacturing (AM); the challenges of AM, including quality control; and the role of laser welding and cladding technology in AM. He will present examples of industrial applications showing the use of laser welding, cladding and rapid manufacturing techniques in AM, and conclude with a look at future initiatives in the area of LAM. Penn has over 40 years of experience with lasers. For more than two decades he worked in laser business development and applications R&D for NASA. He was president of Alabama Laser Systems from 1997 to 2016. His current focus is on the R&D of metal deposition and bonding with an emphasis on additive manufacturing.
