FEATURED VIDEOS

  • We kicked off our Photonics West 2022 video coverage with Asumi Kobyashi at Canon USA. She first introduced us to a high performance, high reliability piezo motor that features high speed and response. After that, we were shown a servo motor driver that features 4 axis control, and a series of DC brushless motors with features including high efficiency and high-precision positioning capabilities.

  • The Machine Vision RV-Series from Canon is made up of a group of systems that are specifically designed to work as the “eyes” of robotic arm systems. Benefits for using these machine vision systems include one-time measurements of 3D pose, high-speed recognition, improved productivity, and reduced production costs. This series is ideal for use in industrial production applications such as automobile parts manufacturing, car manufacturing, and electronics manufacturing.

  • Sukegawa Takashi from Canon USA, Inc. Optoelectronic Components introduces the new Canon Immersion Grating. With a size that is 1/27th of typical spectroscopy devices and the ability to cover infrared frequencies from 1 to 20 micrometers, this immersion grating is ideal for astronomy, satellites, and large ground-based telescope applications.

  • Naomi Shisaike with Canon kicked off our Photonics West 2018 coverage by giving us a rundown of what they were featuring at their booth. Watch the video to learn more about their new surface reflectance anaylyzer.

  • The new RA-532H Surface Reflectance Analyzer from Canon USA, Inc. Optoelectronic Components is capable of surface measurements at three different angles (20°, 60°, and 85°). Utilized measurement methods include standard compliant gloss, haze, Image Clarity (IC), and 1-D and 2-D BRDF (Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function) measurements. The analyzer can be used for a variety of evaluation and inspection applications with many types of surfaces such as film, paper, and automotive, printed, or painted surfaces.

  • The RV1100 is a 3D machine vision system designed to measure and recognize randomly assembled production line parts with complex shapes and very few distinguishing features for robotic arm systems. It offers the benefits of one-time measurements of 3D pose, high-speed recognition, improved productivity, and reduced production costs. The RV1100 is ideal for use in industrial production applications such as automobile parts manufacturing, car manufacturing, and electronics manufacturing.
