Training: Hyperspectral Imaging – innovative inspection in machine vision
Hyperspectral imaging opens up new inspection possibilities for machine vision users. The absorption behaviour in the near infrared range (NIR) allows conclusions to be drawn as to the chemical structure of organic objects for identification and separation. Thanks to the „Perception Studio“ software, specialist know-how in spectroscopy and time-consuming programming are no longer required.
Hyperspectral imaging is especially suited for the pharmaceutical and medical industry, for food processing, recycling, mining, wood processing and for document inspection, wherever ingredients and substances, which cannot be detected by conventional colour or monochrome images, need to be identified and separated reliably. Based on practical application examples and live demonstrations, experienced trainers explain the technical background and all necessary hardware and software components.
You will get to know the specific hardware components needed for hyperspectral imaging, such as spectrographs, SWIR cameras with different interfaces, special IR lenses and optimised illumination for the relevant range of wavelengths. You will learn what really matters when putting together the components for the perfect vision solution.
An essential part of the training focuses on the processing of hyperspectral image data by using the graphical user interface of the „Perception Studio“ software. The software allows easy classification of complex hyperspectral object information via teach-in. This enables the distinction of various characteristics (such as proportions of water and fat, types of plastic and chemical agents or other organic substances).
You will also learn how to transfer the classified image data to other platforms via GigE Vision for further processing in a familiar software environment.
