CCD Lens Assembly

Have you ever considered CCD and CMOS lens assemblies for machine vision? Machine vision refers to the process of installing imaging devices that can automatically inspect products that have been put together either through automation or through manual assembly. It is easy to see why machine vision might be a good idea for businesses that deal heavily with the assembly of items.

CCD technology, also known as a charge coupled device, is a popular option for many machine vision operations. CCD technology allows for quick imaging, sometimes up to ten times as fast other types of lens assemblies. CCD technology is ideal for machine vision because it allows you to accurately read the image. CCD technology is the most common types of lens assemblies used for machine vision and for this reason; it is an excellent choice for small businesses of many types. CCD technology is mostly used in scientific and medical applications, but is still an ideal choice for machine vision as well because of its quick rendering ability. CCD was first discovered in 1969 by AT&T Bell Labs and since that time has become one of the most used technologies in many different imaging applications.

CMOS lens assemblies are also popular and are defined as complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor technology. It is made of integrating circuits and used with many microprocessors in many different types of applications, making them another popular choice for machine vision. CMOS technology is excellent for machine vision because it gives very accurate readings and is a reliable technology that is used in many different similar applications. CMOS applications may sometimes be ideal because they consume far less power than CCD lens assemblies. This can help a company to keep its costs down if it is going to be using a lot of imaging technology on a day to day basis.

It is easy to see why machine vision would be beneficial for many small businesses and particularly those that do a lot of manufacturing. The ability to offer high quality readings and inspections of equipment will allow you to speed up your production process. Both CCD and CMOS technologies have their own benefits in machine vision applications. Our engineers can help you design the assembly that best suits your needs.
