Since 1994, VCA is an engineering company specialized in machine vision applications.
■ Vision study and feasibility
■ Challenging vision equipment
■ Vision specification in order to meet industrial requirements
■ Image processing software and algorithms
■ Process control validation ( FDA protocol )
■ Maintenance and troubleshooting
■ Opto-electronic device development
■ Smart Camera
■ Visual C and Visual Basic Programming
■ Multi-task programming
OCR for optical character recognition and OCV for optical character verification. Through an extensive set of vision tools, VCA has been selected to study critical marking verification. In 1992, VCA was the first to solve inkjet inspection for Schneider Electric. Ten years later, VCA was again the first to provide an industrial solution for embossed markings.
■ Control of markings
■ Inspection of automotive glass
■ Pharmaceutical bags
Targets and References
Supported industries: Cosmetics, Automotive glass, Pharmaceutics, Molding, Food, etc.
Low contrast edge detection
The second field of application is based on edge detection on low contrast borders. Typical applications are found in plastic and glass industries where accurate measurements are requested. In 1992, VCA was the first to inspect pharmaceutical bags where material reflexion was a serious challenge. Today, the same vision tools are used in the automotive glass industry.
