What is industrial image processing?


Basics of industrial image processing

Digital image processing is a fast working, contactless key technology with high dynamics. It provides objective results and assessments with high reliability and availability. Industrial image processing is used for quality assurance and increasingly for process regulation and control.

New applications for »integrated image processing« are constantly being developed in a wide variety of fields.
In this context the term »industrial image processing« is used.
The performance and spectral range are becoming increasingly larger and the combination of different sensor types as well as application areas more diverse.
