Machine Vision Application Evaluation Process

Machine vision is an essential aspect of the manufacturing process that allows you to automate many of your quality operations and create a more efficient and cost-effective way to produce defect-free parts. Gibson Engineering combines decades of vision experience with our state-of-the-art machine vision technology from leading manufacturers to ensure the accuracy of our machine feasibility studies.

We use a simple, four-step process to evaluate machine vision.

1. Define Requirements

First, identify the requirements of your vision applications and the components, samples, or products to be tested. Knowing the application requirements allows the Gibson Engineering vision team to recreate your process with as many real-world variables included as possible - building confidence that the evaluation's hardware recommendation will be the correct solution. Necessary application requirements include:

  • Cycle time requirements
  • Inspection criteria, with tolerances
  • Field of view
  • Physical constraints

2. Send Us Parts

Send in all of your sample parts to Gibson Engineering for examination, submitting both bad and good parts in all sizes for the most accurate results. Be sure to include necessary tools and fixtures for assembly, along with pictures or videos of the process. All of these things will help the engineers get a thorough understanding of how your machine/process operates and what variables need to be considered for a successful vision deployment.

3. Proof of Concept

At this stage, the experts at Gibson Engineering will test your parts under various resolution cameras, lighting, styles, and lensing options to achieve optimal imaging & inspection results. We will generate an inspection time analysis and evaluation report to help us determine the success of your machine vision application against your specific parameters.

4. Review the Results

In this final step, Gibson Engineering will give you feedback and samples to illustrate the progress on your components/samples. Through an online or in-person review of the results with our team you'll gain access to valuable sample images, job files, and application feedback from the experts who worked on your project.

At this stage, Gibson Engineering also offers a formal quotation of the solution with pricing & lead time details.
