Engineers, designers, and product developers have found that industrial-grade 3D printing and plastic injection molding work well together in the life cycle of a product, starting with the design-risk mitigation of 3D printing prototyping and then shifting to the manufacturing method of injection molding to ramp up for higher volumes.
Temporal multiplexing is an alternative approach to hyperspectral imaging that uses a fast LED technology. Instead of broadband illuminating and diffracting the spectrum of light in the camera, a broadband sensitive chip is used, and the illumination spectrum is varied over time via fast triggering.

Designers have been known to “save the lens for last” when creating vision systems with very specific black box dimensions and lighting, resolution, and pixel specifications. One solution to this dilemma is a new and improved design approach called concurrent engineering.
Materials that are transparent or opaque to IR wavelengths present problems in non-contact temperature measurements with an IR camera. This article is Part 4 of a handbook by FLIR that discusses how filters can be used to extend IR camera usefulness.

In the past, a thin-film design software was used to help develop the coating, but the real challenge was in actually replicating the design thickness and the material indexes inside the coating chamber, without any errors.
