Manufacturing and quality assurance of machine vision lighting
Strict quality control procedures have been implemented at our LED manufacturing facility; these careful procedures are followed step-by-step to guarantee the dependability, reliability, and consistency of our products. The quality department performs a thorough inspection on each batch of LEDs it receives to ensure that the wavelength is within the allowed tolerances. In a climate chamber, approved LEDs are kept until they are needed for production. The next automated step entails soldering and inspecting the LEDs after they have been placed on a PCB. As the production line progresses, the LED boards are put together into a mechanical housing. Testing is done on the lights after they are assembled to make sure they function as intended, especially machine vision lights like line scan lights. This crucial stage guarantees that every unit satisfies our inflexible quality requirements.
Diffusers are made as part of the machine vision lighting production process. Before being cut into the proper shape, each batch of diffuser plates is tested for transparency. The diffusers are cut automatically. Diffusers are included as standard equipment with all of our bar lights and backlights. The last stage is a thorough quality check, during which each light's voltage, current, and intensity are measured precisely. This process ensures that every machine vision light that leaves our building satisfies the necessary requirements.
We have set aside a room for light-source edge testing in order to further guarantee the stability of our machine vision lights over the long run. Here, a particular lighting element is used for our particular purpose along with controllers made specifically for that particular testing. To guarantee that our machine vision lights' quality and output are consistent over time, we also use a standard light for edge testing.
