Machine vision technology is key to efficiently manufacturing a wide range of products today, from semiconductors to appliances to beverage containers. A crucial first step in any good machine vision application is developing the right optics and lighting for the application. With proper imaging and light arrangements the features to be inspected will be clear and easy to find. With the wrong optics and lighting these features can be obscured, difficult to analyze or completely invisible. This webinar will address the basic principles and methods of machine vision optics and lighting and review some of the many advances in methods and components that have made machine vision easier to implement in recent years.
