3 Benefits of Machine Vision You Probably Never Thought About

Machine vision systems consist of optics that capture an image, and software that makes sense of what is being seen. In many ways, a vision system operates the same way you do…. your eye is like a camera, sending images to your brain, which makes sense of what you are seeing. Manufacturers generally use industrial machine vision to improve quality, reduce production costs and optimize processes. Here are three benefits of machine vision you may not have considered:
1. Removing physical contact between a vision system and the parts being inspected prevents part damage and eliminates the maintenance time and costs associated with wear and tear on mechanical components
2. Machine vision brings additional safety and operational benefits by reducing human involvement in a manufacturing process
3. Machine vision prevents human contamination of clean rooms and protects human workers from hazardous environments
