Vision System Example

The image to the left shows a mastic (adhesive bead) inspection on a sunroof frame installed at a local manufacturer.  The red areas on the part are the programmed vision sensors in the camera that are used to count the bright mastic pixels. If there is not enough or too much mastic, the HMI visually notifies the operator and displays the pass or fail images and results as shown below.
