Image processing is regarded as a key technology in various branches of industry and is used, for example, in the automotive industry, scientific research, modern medical technology or quality control. Image processing is based on special camera systems whose images are automatically evaluated by software. The generated data is used by image processing systems to check and optimize production processes, identify components, read codes or guide machines.
In addition to the pure determination of position, presence control and measurement, image processing systems detect non-contact and very reliably even defective products in early production stages. The defective elements identified in this way effectively prevent further manufacturing errors or expensive returns.
