Integrating Liquid Lenses in Imaging Optics

Dr Boris Lange

Edmund Optics


This presentation provides an overview of the two predominantly used technologies when it comes to liquid lenses – from a traditional optics manufacturer´s point of view. An introduction of the technologies used by Varioptic and Optotune is given, completed with a short overview of the associated products. The second part of the presentation illustrates how those products can be integrated in Fixed Focal Length Lenses and Telecentric lenses

Six Key Considerations for Machine Vision Lighting from Gardasoft

Jools Hudson



Lighting and lighting control should be vital considerations in every machine vision implementation because the quality of the captured image is defined by the exact design and implementation of the lighting components. It’s a common mistake for system designers to rely heavily on image correction, thinking that an inadequate image can be corrected before further processing is carried out. But Machine Vision software can only work with information that has been captured, which means that the primary consideration should be to obtain the best possible source image. Obtaining a perfect image requires a good, reliable lighting system. This presentation reviews the six key considerations for machine vision lighting:1. Optimise the image at source2. Get the most from your LEDs3. Build in flexibility4. Maintain stable illumination5. Make setup easy6. Utilise network connectivity

Advances in Telecentric Technology

Luca Bonato

Opto Engineering


In the machine vision industry, a particularly demanding sector is the metrological one where telecentric lenses boast the primacy in terms of performances. On the other hand, telecentric lenses have a major drawback in the unavoidable design-related bulkiness, causing possible difficulties in the integration: considering that the best performance is achieved by matching lens and telecentric illuminator, the issue might be even more significant. Also, the overall accuracy of the system depends critically on fine-tuned mechanical adjustments related to lens-light alignment (when collimated illumination is used) and object plane alignment. Finally, a fast and reliable measurement software, together with high-quality calibration algorithms, are essential for the overall repeatability and accuracy of the system. Recent advances in optical design exploiting new fabrication techniques are showcased in this presentation, together with an insight into innovative calibration algorithms and measurement software to maximize the performance of the vision system.

The Importance of Syncing Camera, Software and Lighting in High-Speed Imaging Applications

Steve Kinney

Smart Vision Lights


High-volume, mass-consumed products, such as packaged food, are subject to both government regulation and stringent quality assurance requirements that, in turn, demand high-speed performance from the components comprising machine vision inspection systems.Camera components must deliver sufficient frame rate or acquisition speed; image processing software requires a computing platform able to execute fast commands; and the LED lighting must trigger and come to full power quickly to freeze inspection images at the precise time.Additionally, all components of the machine vision system (camera, software, and LED lighting) must work in unison to achieve the accuracy, consistency, and performance required for these challenging applications.This presentation will discuss these challenges in detail and showcase advancements that are helping to enhance high-speed automated imaging applications.

Vision System Enclosures for Food and Pharma Environments

Jack McKinley

TPL Vision


Food and Pharmaceutical environments are some of the harshest environments that a vision system will be integrated. Mostly due to intense cleaning cycles with chemicals and strict hygiene standards. This presentation will take you through what is really required from your vision components in food grade machines, such as standards to adhere to and design features to look for on the components you chose to integrate.
