ViewFlex can be used for stand-alone vision operations, or integrated in CIMflex systems for vision-based quality control application, or coupled with SCORBOT robots for vision-guided robotic tasks and QC processes.
The advanced features of ViewFlex allow users to implement scientific and industrial applications. ViewFlex software offers an extensive set of optimized functions for image processing and enhancement, blob analysis, gauging and measurement, and pattern matching. The system supports applications such as precision measurement, flaw detection and assembly inspection to enable compliance with exacting quality requirements.
ViewFlex enables students to design and develop their own vision applications using the software’s Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) compatible scripting environment. The software can also interact with other Windows applications using OLE/Automation.
Whatever the configuration or application, ViewFlex is designed to ensure students’ success in learning and applying machine vision technology.
