3D machine vision is a necessity in the world of Industrial inspection due to the requirement for efficiency improvement in manufacturing. There is a clear emphasis towards automation and quality control, which are both critical in order to compete.  

The basic principle of 3D structured lighting is the process of projecting a reference illumination pattern onto an object whereby the displacement of the illumination is used to determine dimensional information via triangulation. This data is then processed for different machine vision related inspection tasks.

One of the most important elements of a highly effective 3D Machine Vision system is the illumination source. The quality of the light distribution is a key factor in determining scan speed, resolution and precision limitations of a vision system. With our customizable platforms, optical solutions and expertise, Osela is the perfect partner to maximize the performance of your 3D system.
