Vision Systems

Optimation provides systems integration services for vision systems for a wide range of technologies. Vision and imaging systems are being accepted and applied because of their cost, time, and performance benefits. Measurable benefits include yield, productivity, and reduced manpower requirements. Optimation can work with you to decide what your approach should be to Vision System implementation.

An area of particular strength is in teaming with our process and mechanical design team for machine conceptualization, design, fabrication and installation experience to overcome vibration, lighting and mechanical layout challenges. Mechanical engineers and designers with SolidWorks, AutoCAD 3D and Unigraphics expertise can work with your engineering operations and production staff to ensure that the delivered solution improves your manufacturing and quality assurance processes.

Vision Technology Flexibility

We work with a variety of vendors, depending on system and customer requirements. Optimation is experienced in the integration of user configurable, off-the-shelf systems, as well as providing custom needs with VisualBasic, C, C++, and other languages. We know the right technology, including cameras and lighting, is the key to a reliable vision system. We have the staff to support full system integration and program PLC’s, motion control and interfaces to enterprise systems.
