Smart Vision Lights has received patent number US 11,328,380 B2 for its latest machine vision light innovation and standout at the recent Automate 2022 conference and exhibit: the DoAll light.
It’s an all-in-one solution unprecedented in its flexibility for machine vision lighting applications.
Multiple inspections, one light
A dome light, two angles of dark field illumination, and a four-quadrant multispectral ring light are all combined in a single unit. The DoAll Light is particularly useful for robotic and other flexible automation systems.
The ring light has red, green, blue, white and 850 nm NIR channels which can be mixed for any color or VIS + NIR inspections.
The dome light provides diffuse illumination for electronics inspection and other final feature inspection where hot spots and shadows pose a challenge.
Dark field ring lights
The two angles of dark field ring lights provide versatility and can illuminate a wide range of scenes, ranging from fine surface textures to larger features such as screws.
Four-quadrant ring light
The four-quadrant ring light enables 3D photometric inspections.
One light to do it all
The new DoAll light gives you all of these functions and features in a single light enclosure. Initially designed to be mounted at the end of a robotic arm, the DoAll includes multiple ports for connecting auxiliary lights such as spots or linear lights. It is part of an advanced illumination system that includes the light, a sequencing controller, a 4ZMD (four zone) LED driver, and cables. The DoAll Light comes with many options including LED colors and optics.
On display at Automate
The innovative new light was on display at Automate in Detroit. Mounted at the end of a robotic arm attached to the front end of a 1965 Mustang, the DoAll ran multiple inspections on the car:
- Dome light checks alignment of the Ford lettering on the car
- Bright field ring light inspects paint color
- Bright field ring light inspects lettering on the wheel
- Multispectral ring light identifies wire colors
- Photometric stereo dark field ring light inspects the paint for scratches
- Color mixing ring light inspects the grille for defects
The DoAll Light is now available in limited release for key customers in robotics and automotive manufacturing. It is expected to be commercially available by the end of the year.
