ROBOTIC ASSEMBLY & INSPECTION SYSTEM
MidOpt has more than 30 years of experience in industrial optics and is a worldwide leader in manufacturing filters specially designed for machine vision applications. MidOpt sets the industry standard for filter performance, and our recent addition is no exception to our history of innovation. We’re excited to introduce an industry first, incorporating cutting-edge robotic technology into our assembly system to ensure quality and repeatability by limiting the possibility of human error in the manufacturing and inspection processes. See how it works in the video below.
CONSISTENT QUALITY INSPECTION
The new MidOpt Robotic Assembly and Inspection Station guarantees consistency and uniformity when inspecting scratches, digs and other cosmetic defects. A greater variety of inspection lighting is utilized, increased magnification and additional inspection steps are employed, and the variability of individual perception is removed from the inspection equation. This results in pristine optical surfaces and unmatched image quality. Ensure that industrial imaging applications are performing optimally with superior optical filters produced with new generation robotic technology.
When assembling optically flat, precision polished filters into tightly screwed down filter mounts, interferometric measurements reveal drastic deformations caused by the stress of assembly. The resulting optical distortion can significantly impact image quality, as seen in the examples to the left. The new MidOpt Robotic Assembly Station allows each filter to be gently and securely held in the filter mount by the retaining ring. After ideal torque is applied, controlled amounts of thread-locking compound are dispensed to prevent the retaining ring from shifting.
