Cognex Corp. has rolled out In-Sight Explorer 4.4, a new software release for its In-Sight vision systems. In-Sight Explorer 4.4 adds new color tools, improved calibration and expanded data access within its EasyBuilder configuration software, and expands support for larger line scan images, the company says.
The new software also introduces InspectEdge, a new family of tools for detecting edge defects and inspecting edge pairs. InspectEdge finds gaps and defects in both straight and circular-shaped edges, and can inspect the width of features for gaps and defects by tracking multiple edge pairs.
Support for irregular shapes in InspectEdge enables better performance on challenging width inspections, such as automotive glue beads, Cognex says. The tool's graphical user interface makes it simple to set up an edge inspection, and also gives users more flexibility to define defect criteria such as size, area and distance, and the ability specify outliers in order to eliminate noise, Cognex adds.
