hispec2_l

The HiSpec 2 features a built-in battery, expandable memory from a standard 4GB up to 8GB and can be configured to withstand 100 Hi-G accelerations for 20 ms and vibration to 10g's. Its built-in battery ensures fail-safe operation in the event of a power loss and allows untethered operation for up to an hour. There is also an image retention mode that stores images up to 24 hours. The choice of Hi-G format, IRIG B timing and increased memory combined with its small size make the HiSpec 2 ideal for on-board automotive impact testing, military ordinance testing and other harsh environments. With its ISO rating of 3,200 monochrome, the HiSpec 2 records images in superb detail up to 506 fps at 1280 x 1024 pixel resolution and up to 112,000 fps at reduced resolutions.

Food manufacturing consists of dozens of segments including animal foods, dog and cat foods, breakfast cereals, sugar and confectionary products, fruit and vegetable, frozen foods, dairy foods, meat, seafoods, bakery and snack foods. Food processing and production machines in many industries represent significant financial investments, are very complex and operate at high speeds. Quality, traceability and regulatory compliance are becoming more challenging and high-speed cameras are an indispensible aid to engineers and quality personnel in the operation of these machines.

Cartoning and case erecting, coding and marking, forming/ filling/sealing, labeling, adhesive applying, bagging/filling/sealing, blister filling/sealing, blow molding, capping, conveying, feeding/inserting, flow wrapping, pouching and shrink wrapping machines all operate at high speeds and need continual monitoring, adjustments and maintenance to operate at peak throughput.

Use Cases

cereal

Cereal Manufacturer

A leading breakfast cereal manufacturer was experiencing a high number of rejected cereal bags. A filler/sealer machine’s PLC timing was off by 30 milliseconds so that the bag heat sealing commenced before the filling had stopped. As a result cereal was caught in the seal. At 500 frames per second, 2 milliseconds per picture, the engineers were able to get more than 15 images at the end of the process. They were able to adjust the PLC timing so that dwell time was at a minimum and thus ensure that the maximum throughput of 200 bags per minute production was met without the sealing problem.
