Vision Software Surpasses BLOB Tools

Nov. 5, 2010
Machine Vision systems commonly use a series of edge or BLOB (Binary Large OBject) algorithms to locate and inspect parts. 
The functionality and benefits of edge and BLOB tools are surpassed with the PinPoint Pattern Find tool in Impact software, says the vendor. PinPoint Pattern Find is said to deliver the simplicity of applying a single tool with the power to adjust for variable location, rotation and reflectivity. The same Impact software suite is included with all of the vendor’s 21 smart camera models. The Impact software emulator runs on any Windows PC, and is useful for programming and adjusting Impact smart camera inspections off-line, without any camera hardware. The Impact software suite, including its emulator, is available as a free download at the vendor’s Web site.PPT Vision Inc.www.pptvision.com952.996.9500
