SPECTROSCOPIC CAMERA CHECKS COLOUR ON THE LINE

Epson has developed a compact, lightweight spectroscopic camera suitable for integration in manufacturing lines.

Differences in colour can occur between products in different production lots in ordinary manufacturing processes. A spectroscopic camera can be used for colour variation inspections to ensure product quality. It is also suitable for analysing the quality of surface coatings on products.

When RGB cameras are used for these types of inspections, they are unable to capture detailed colour information and are not always able to distinguish between subtle differences in colour. Consequently, most visual inspections have traditionally relied on human colour perception.

However, colour perception varies among individuals, and human error puts manufacturers at risk of shipping defective goods. Time and cost constraints make colour management an issue in many industries. Spectroscopic cameras have traditionally been large and expensive, and those equipped with line sensors may have to composite images after scanning, adding to the time and expense.

Epson has developed an optimal solution for colour management processes with a compact, lightweight spectroscopic camera that can be integrated into manufacturing lines that can automate and quantify inspections, and output images without the time and trouble of compositing. This spectroscopic camera will enable manufacturers to manage colour in their manufacturing processes more easily than ever before.
