OmniView allows detailed inspection and verification of unoriented wine and juice bottles, canned goods, pharmaceutical vials and other cylindrical packages right on the production line. Using Windows 7 64-bit PCs, OmniView is designed to inspect products at up to 1,200 parts per minute. It uses four cameras positioned around the conveyor to view all sides of a product. These are mapped into a 3D model using proprietary technology, and then inspected using VisionPro software. New full-color inspection enables plants to inspect color logos, match the cap and label colors, and confirm the color of bottle contents. Ability to use cameras up to 5 megapixels in resolution allows detailed inspections on slower lines. The higher resolution can also be used to image tall bottles in a single field of view, while retaining enough resolution to clearly read small print or Data Matrix codes.
