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.
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.
We were fortunate enough to meet with Taiki Iida at Canon to hear about two brand new releases.
Ron Travis with Canon gives us an overview of what they were displaying at the show, most notably their optical rotary and linear encoders, their laser Doppler velocity sensors, and their digital Galvano laser scanners for laser drilling, laser welding, laser etching, and rapid prototyping applications.
Ronald Travis, sales manager with Canon USA, introduces us to his company’s line of miniature optical encoders, galvano scanners, laser Doppler velocity sensors, and rotary encoders at Photonics West 2013.
Ron Travis, sales manager at Canon U.S.A., tells us about their SR Series of ultra-miniature optical encoders, laser rotary encoders, laser doppler velocity sensors, and galvano scanners. These products are used in a wide variety of applications such as motion and speed control, robotics, manufacturing equipment, and more.
This video contains information on Canon’s Laser Rotary Encoders, or rotation angle sensors, and describes their benefit over conventional rotary encoders.
This video provides information on Canon’s high speed, high precision laser system and how it’s used to detect angle positions and to control galvano mirrors.
Application-specific design in actuators ensures unparalleled motion control, reliability, and longevity in both the component and the device it serves.
Canon's family of laser rotary encoders provide highly accurate angle sensing for applications involving industrial and medical robotic engineering, stage position control, direct motor control, high-precision measurement instruments, and more. The available datasheet contains information on electrical, mechanical, and environmental specifications for each laser rotary encoder in the product line, as well as additional information on Canon's light-diffraction interference method.
The RA-532H is the first portable Surface Reflectance Analyzer in the industry that allows for the instant analyzation of almost any material surface and visualizes the results for the main four surface conditions. This analyzer’s comprehensive and reliable analysis can help to improve and maintain high-quality product appearance anywhere and anytime.
What do "quality" and "precision" actually mean describing a manufacturer’s reputation? Is it the design or manufacturing process that ensures quality? Is it having products that seldom fail? Or, is it just peppering the spoken and written word with the terms, with little meaning behind them?
An overview of BLDC motors, their basic components, how they operate, how they differ and where they are used.
If surface appearance quality is critical to your product, learn about a new manufacturing-friendly tool that allows you to establish numerical standards for and measure four conditions of surface quality: gloss, haze, image clarity, and BRDF including Canon’s new parameter “Scattering C20, C60.”
Canon Inc. announced today that the Company has committed to a proposed new imaging solutions business that will leverage the optical and sensor technologies the Company has cultivated over many years. As the first step in establishing this business, Canon is developing a compact multipurpose module camera that the business will employ: the MM100-WS. Canon plans to display the camera as a reference exhibit at the Canon booth at various future events.
The new inner rotor type BN16 brushless motor is designed to support a wide range of medical applications such as infusion pumps, miniature pumps, respiratory/ventilation devices, etc. The motor features high output in a compact design while offering high efficiency and cooler operation. The BN16 inner rotor type brushless motor is able to generate a very low noise and quick response. Integrated circuit options and a built-in driver are made available for this product. A wide range of gearbox and encoder options are available.
The recent introduction of 5-axis laser micro drill system expands the limits of micrometer range drilling. Canon’s unique technology creates flexible hole shapes and wider angles at significantly higher processing speeds. Stent production, injector hole drilling and micromachining will benefit.
The new inner rotor type BN08 brushless motor is designed to support a wide range of medical applications such as infusion pumps, portable medical devices, miniature pumps, etc. The motor features high output in a compact design while offering high efficiency and cooler operation.
