MidOpt Product Solutions

midopt filters

MidOpt's machine vision filters increase the contrast of the subject under inspection, improving the ability of the system to distinguish desired characteristics. Increased contrast allows for increased accuracy and speed. Because lighting will change over time and ambient light is everywhere, MidOpt's filters create the contrast you need and continue to work to control your lighting in the long run.

swatch kit

The Swatch Kit is designed to assist imaging specialists, machine vision integrators and end users in evaluating and improving image quality. Each kit provides a selection of filters useful in observing the effects of different colors, wavelengths, light intensity and polarization on images obtained with various types of commonly used industrial cameras and lighting. The options provided by each kit allow you to select a filter or filter combination that might best solve your application problems.

Our Vision Lab Process

Gibson Engineering combines a legacy of experience with our cutting-edge vision lab to accurately prove your machine vision project specifications, mitigate risk and increase your return on investment (ROI).

vision lab

Our vision lab evaluation is a four-step process:

  1. Define requirements: In this initial stage, our team learns about your vision applications and reviews your cycle time, inspection criteria, field of view and physical constraints.
  2. Send us parts: At this stage, you send your components to us, so our engineering team can evaluate the sample parts, inspection requirements and the variable considerations that will drive successful deployment.
  3. Proof of concept: The project team tests your parts using various real-world conditions like camera resolutions, lighting and lensing styles. We then analyze our findings against your specific parameters to evaluate project success and create an evaluation report and inspection time analysis to display our findings.
  4. Review the results: Finally, our engineers provide a proof of concept with an in-depth quotation for the proposed hardware for your project. We will provide sample images, job files from our testing and application feedback for your reference.
