The UKIVA Machine Vision Conference 2021

Under normal circumstances (pre-Covid-19), as a founder member of the UKIVA Machine Vision Conference, Scorpion Vision would be taking part at the physical event which has taken place in Milton Keynes each spring. The event was cancelled in 2020 and replaced with a technology presentation hub where each participating company…

The Rise of the Robots - Factory Automation and COVID-19

It’s no secret that the operation to develop a COVID-19 vaccine has been a challenging task. With the rapidly increasing rate in which the virus spread, it was a real race against time for researchers, scientists and manufacturers alike. Under normal circumstances, a vaccine can take between 10 and 15…

Emulating humans who cut vegetables

Cutting leeks accurately with good repeatability (the name of the game) using automation is difficult because of the sheer variation and randomness of leeks - or any vegetable, for that matter. Using 3D and AI we try to emulate what a human would do.We started out by just looking at…

Application Note - HIK Robot SC2000 Series Vision Sensor

The Hikrobot SC2000 series cameras have built in software that allows for rudimentary machine vision solutions, whilst being easy to use and set up.Unlike many Hikrobot cameras, the camera is not intended to be used as a camera in the MVS software. Instead, the camera should be accessed via a…

New Q2 2021 Newsletter

In this newsletter we discussed a recent case study where we worked with  a company in the composites carbon fibre industry to improve their production process with quality control monitoring, more can be found on this case study here. As well as this, we have MBJ Imaging in the spotlight, a…

A Potted History of Imaging in Space

If, like most of us, you’ve been keeping a close eye on the developments of NASA’s latest space mission, you may have been intrigued by the ground-breaking technology developed especially for this project. At this very moment in March of 2021, NASA’s little rover, Perseverance, is using an agglomeration of cameras…

Trend Monitoring in Specialist Composite Material Production

An automated vision system designed by Scorpion Vision provides real-time, high accuracy non-contact measurements of the fibre width from the entire length of the material as it is wound onto the spool.The system consists of a box containing a high resolution camera to allow measurements to the micron level, if…

Q1 2021 Newsletter

You've probably seen in the news recently about how much food waste there is in the UK - see how we are combatting this using machine vision automation!Along side this, there is news regarding components and this quarter we have Arducam in the spotlight - a manufacturer of low cost…

Trimming Vegetables with Waterjets

A waterjet can be paired with a vision system to allow for accurate precision, thus eliminating the need for touching or guiding the product. Scorpion Vision’s system uses a 3D camera to locate the cutting point with millimetric precision. This is achieved firstly by using a camera to create a 3D…

A Review of Imaging Devices - Part 2, Standard Machine Vision Cameras

A 'standard machine vision camera' could be defined as follows; A medium resolution sensor in a small housing, with a C-mount for accommodating a lens and with an external trigger function. A longer description would define a standard machine vision camera for factory automation (for example) as a device built to…
