Alignment Turning Stations

For high-precision lenses, the method of mounting single lenses in sub-cells and processing them using alignment turning has proven effective. During this process, the edge of the mount and the flange surfaces of mounted lenses are produced in a way so that the axis of symmetry of the mount coincides with the optical axis of the lens and ensuring that all lenses have the correct air gaps between them. The TRIOPTICS (Wedel, Germany) ATS 100, 200, 200 UP, and 300 UP alignment turning stations now enable advanced processing of the lens edge with threads and grooves. The thread or groove is cut directly on the lens mount, thus saving time by integrating this into a single work process along with the other steps of the mount edge machining.

3D Stereo Camera

With 12 megapixel resolution and a frame rate of up to nine images per second, the new 3D stereo camera from Balluff (Florence, KY) enables highly accurate 3D image processing, even with moving objects. The new BVS 3D_RV1 3D provides the high level of detection accuracy required for demanding industrial automation and logistics applications with working distances up to 4 M. It was specifically developed for detecting and handling small and complex parts, even in large detection areas, such as demanding bin picking and machine tending applications. Adjustable lenses and a built-in projector provide optimal image results for most workspaces.
