Contour Inspection. Machine vision systems for contour inspection examine the profile of an object using high-resolution cameras and 3D sensors to ensure it is free from deviations (e.g. chips), which affect the shape and thus the function of the product. They also check measurements such as length, width, and radius to ensure they are within set parameters.
A common application for 3D vision systems is the production of crankshaft castings in the automotive industry, where they instruct robots to position castings ready for the next stage of assembly.

Another most important use of the cameras and sensors is to decide the position of the components and separately assembled as they move forward in the manufacturing line. Generally the vision system is not very complicated and complex the system can be used in manufacturing with very short training and education of personnel. ,
Technology has drastically increased from the time of hand rolling. Thanks to the use of automated cigarette manufacturing machines, cigarettes are made in huge quantities in a fast and efficient manner. First the tobacco is transferred from it’s holding areas, this is normally called a silo. In the silo, the tobacco is processed to insure the fullest flavor of your cigarette. Then it is transferred to a machine that will cut the tobacco and divide it. The machine will divide the tobacco and roll it into cylindrical shapes. Then it is transferred on to another machine.
Injection needles’ size makes them almost impossible to inspect with a naked eye. Machine vision systems can inspect 40 needles per minute with 100% accuracy, speeding up production and reducing costs. Other contour inspection applications include concentricity checks of spark plugs for petrol engines, the measurement of coating structures on capacitor foils, and tooth inspection of saw blades.
