Fully standardized machine vision systems won't require task specific hard- or software development. This allows short project realization times at minimized cost. This paper describes two very different applications which were realized only by menu-guided configuration of the QueCheck standard machine vision system. The first is an in-line survey of oilpump castings necessary to protect the following working machine from being damaged by castings not according to the specified geometrical measures. The second application shows the replacement of time consuming manual particle size analysis of fertilizer pellets, by a continuous analysis with a vision system. At the same time the data of the vision system can be used to optimize particle size during production.
