Machine Vision Systems and Turnkey Inspection Solutions
This is where we'll announce the most recent additions to our web site. If you've visited us before and want to know what's changed, take a look here first.
Phoenix Imaging has adopted a new logo design for the automation products company. The new logo is brighter in color and more compact. The three colors of the new design represent components, systems and service branches of the company. This is a third generation logo for Phoenix Imaging since the company started in 1985.
CTS™ Product from Datalogic (PPT-Vision)
Just released the long awaited Custom Tailored Solutions from Datalogic allow the time proven PPT-Vision software to function on Phoenix Imaging's Industrial Grade Image Processors. This product offers all of the benefits of the PPT-Vision software with Open Architecture of the IVS-80 / PVS-80 Image Processing Systems. Now Phoenix Imaging can provide turnkey machine vision applications to customers that want to continue projects with the VPM / CPM development environment.
Datalogic (PPT-Vision) MX-20 Machine Vision System
This is the most image processing power for the dollar that you can find anywhere! Unlike simple smart camera technology that cost twice as much when adding a second sensor, the MX-20 can add the second sensor for the price of CCD camera and cable. The system has the ability to capture, display and store images all in the same box. No need for a laptop or second computer for the development, running, interaction, storage or display of inspection images and data, it can all be handled by the MX-20 Image Processor!
Since the MX-20 Machine Vision System has more memory and a large central processing unit (CPU) it can analyze images faster! The system offer a considerable image processing library with functionality that most machine vision system can only dream about. Don be fooled by it compact size this is a powerful machine vision system capable of correlation of information between two sensor because that are in the same box! If you plan to use one or two sensors in your machine vision project this system is worthy of investigation. Call or email Phoenix Imaging for details.
Phoenix Imaging has been issued US Patent 7,394,530 B2 for detection of worn and broken tools in CNC Machining Centers. The technology implements a unique illumination technique that reduces the effects of surface texture created by the machining process but enhances the surface abnormalities. This technology is extremely useful in the detection of porosity that is often found on machined aluminum components.
The technology allows the customer to assign multiple inspection zones on a surface and apply a separate inspection criteria to each of them. The inspection zones are aligned to each new component using manufacturing datum. In addition the technology allows the customer to measure the dimensions of key feature and measure the position of the features with respect to the datum. Phoenix Imaging refers to this new technology as VCMM or “Virtual Coordinate Measurement Machine”.
To determine if this new technology is applicable to your process or application contact Phoenix Imaging sales or a local representative. For more information on this unique inspection equipment see "Porosity Inspection".
