SICK has unveiled its first vision camera with a pre-installed Deep Learning app onboard, simplifying custom quality inspections of complex or irregular-shaped goods, packaging and assemblies.
The Intelligent Inspection Deep Learning App runs on SICK’s new Inspector P621 2D programmable vision camera. The all-in-one package enables machine builders and end-users to set up vision classifications using AI in a fraction of the time and cost it would take to program challenging inspections based on recognising the pre-set rules and patterns of traditional vision systems.
Where it has previously been challenging to achieve consistently robust and repeatable quality inspections, it can now be mastered with ultimate reliability and availability. Automation is therefore now practical and affordable for complex imaging tasks such as sorting fresh fruit and vegetables.
Sick’s Neil Sandhu said: “By embedding the Intelligent Inspection App onto SICK’s Inspector P621 deep learning camera, SICK has made it possible for users to purchase a ready-made package that uses artificial intelligence to run complex vision inspections with ease.”
