Cognex Corporation announces its "next generation" OmniView® 360° inspection system, now equipped with color functionality and high-resolution 5 megapixel cameras. OmniView enables detailed inspection and verification of wine and juice bottles, cans, pharmaceutical vials and other non-oriented cylindrical packaging, directly on the production line. Running on Windows® 7 - 64-bit, OmniView technology inspects products at speeds of up to 1,200 parts per minute, without interrupting the bottling and packaging lines.
OmniView uses four cameras positioned around the conveyor to capture views of all sides of a product. A fifth camera can be added to confirm that the lid or cap matches the label on the package.
Extensive color capabilities : Now featuring color inspection, OmniView 5.0 enables manufacturing units to inspect color logos, check that lid and label colors match, and confirm the color of bottle contents. It also offers operators an attractive color screen.
High-resolution inspection Thanks to its 5-megapixel cameras, OmniView can carry out detailed inspections on slower lines. High resolution can also be used to "image" large bottles in a single field of view, while retaining sufficient resolution to clearly read Data Matrix or small print codes.
OmniView version 5.0 also offers support for the GigE standard at the best price/performance ratio."

- OmniView application software with turnkey user interface;
- Cognex VisionPro vision tools for product identification and inspection ;
- A set of calibration plates for 3D modeling;
