A machine vision system should 1 designed in the context of providing the tools for process improvement. Obvious benefits of a vision system, such as the reduction in labor costs, and the potential for 100% part inspection are important, but providing process control and improving the manufacturing process can often provide the greatest long-term economical savings. Process improvements can be achieved by the operator adaptively tuning the manufacturing operation, in response to on-line process statistics (provided through a menu-driven user interface) and color graphic images on a video monitor. This paper discusses the design, development, and integration of a specific turnkey vision inspection system into an existing production facility.
