Production and quality control of machine vision lighting

Our LED manufacturing facility has implemented a strict process of quality control,  this meticulous process is followed step by step to ensure the reliability and consistency of our products. Upon receiving a new batch of LEDs, the quality department completes a comprehensive check to test whether the wavelength falls within the specified tolerances. Approved LEDs are stored in a climate chamber, ready for use in production. The next stage is automated and involves placing the LEDs on a PCB which is then followed by an inspection and soldering. Moving along the production line, the LED boards are Assembled into a mechanical housing. Post-assembly, the lights undergo testing to ensure that the lighting performs according to its specified function, especially machine vision lighting such as line scan lights. This critical phase ensures that each unit meets our uncompromising quality standards.

The production process of the machine vision lighting also includes the creation of diffusers. The diffusers are cut automatically and every batch of diffuser plates undergoes transparency testing before they are cut into the correct shape. It is standard that all of our bar lights and backlights are equipped with a diffuser. The final step involves a comprehensive quality check, where the intensity, voltage, and current of each light are meticulously measured. This step guarantees that all machine vision lights that leave our facility meet the required specifications. 

During the R&D phase of a new light, the light will be continuously on for 1 week to monitore the temperature. For every new production run of lights, each light will be continuously powered for 12 hours. This ensures that the quality and output of our machine vision lights remain uniform over time.

Applications for machine vision lighting

Machine vision lighting plays a vital role in various applications across diverse industries, enabling accurate and reliable analysis of objects using machine vision systems. It is commonly used for surface inspection, defect detection, high contrast, object recognition, placement and the creation of silhouettes for part alignment. 

In addition to these fundamental applications, machine vision lighting finds extensive use in quality control processes. It ensures the precision and consistency of manufactured products. The technology is employed in assembly lines to detect imperfections, irregularities, or deviations in dimensions, consequently contributing to the production of high-quality goods. Machine vision lighting is often  used in barcode reading and identification tasks, improving the efficiency of logistics and supply chain management. Its versatility provides valuable insight into product quality and facilitates in the operation of automated systems by improving efficiency. As technology keeps evolving, machine vision lighting is on the verge of becoming even more critical when streamlining industrial processes and boosting overall efficiency.

Product life cycle management  of machine vision lighting

Illumination in industrial machine vision applications is crucial. Machine vision lighting is employed for inspecting and controlling products, materials, and processes. Machine vision LED lighting has to meet strict requirements, such as constant light intensity, accurate colour rendering and long lifetime. A precise manufacturing process is needed to ensure these requirements. The lights within this category have a long-life cycle, therefore one can continuously purchase the same light with the exact same specs such as output for many years. Machine vision lights have a great batch reproduction and minimal LED characteristic variations between batches that could cause quality deviations.

Accessories to add to your  machine vision lighting setup

A dedicated power supply offers several advantages over using the mains directly. By incorporating a dedicated power supply into your machine vision lighting setup, you can reap the benefits of consistent illumination, increased reliability, reduced energy consumption, enhanced control, and minimized electromagnetic interference. These advantages contribute to the overall effectiveness and longevity of your machine vision system. We recommend using a power supply like our commonly used 24V Power supply Set. A power supply like our 24V/60W Power Supply/Light Controller is advised when triggering the machine vision lights and controlling the light intensity is required for your application.  

Besides a power supply, we also offer extension cables, LED strobe controllers and mounting brackets to easily mount the machine vision lighting in your application.
