Software Adds Bead Inspection Tool

As the latest release of the vendor’s integrated development environment (IDE) for the Iris GT smart camera, Design Assistant 2.3 offers new features including a bead inspection tool and simplified fixturing, as well as support for Microsoft Windows 7.

Design Assistant 2.3’s bead tool inspects material applied as a continuous sinuous bead, such as adhesives and sealants, and identifies discrepancies in application length, placement and width, as well as discontinuities. For applications where mechanical fixturing of parts is impractical, Design Assistant 2.3’s simplified fixturing automatically positions the region of interest (ROI) for a measurement or reading tool using the results from a locating tool. This latest version of Design Assistant offers improved project switching capabilities, support for Modbus master mode for controlling automation devices, and simplified flowchart branching using the switch-case element.
