The use of industrial LED lighting in machine vision applications

Machine vision industrial lights are reliable products which provide constant, non-fluctuating power/light output. The GeT Cameras Machine vision lighting is designed to be used 24/7, providing the best light conditions. As well, a variety of customization options are available (colors, sizes and branding).

Different industrial lighting series

Selecting an industrial machine vision light can be difficult. There are many types of lighting such as:

  • Ring light: Ideal to require uniform illumination for round objects or inspection of small parts. 
  • Bar light: Mostly used in pairs to minimize shadows and create uniform lighting. It could be placed in the right angle for your specific object.
  • Coaxial light: Great solution for inspections where a direct, on-axis light source is required for minimal reflections or shadows.
  • Back light: This light creates a silhouette effect and highlights the contours of objects for object detection or shape recognition.
  • Many more lighting (such as Dome light, Line Scan light & Spot light)

The broad Machine Vision Lighting Portfolio that is offered by GeT Cameras makes sure a great lighting solution could be chosen for a variety of applications including robotics and automation, surface inspection and Barcode Reading.

Selection of the right lighting set-up

Do you struggle with choosing the most ideal lighting solution for your vision application? Feel free to check the GeT Cameras website for more information or check this bar light introduction set: Bar Light Set - Machine Vision Lighting (get-cameras.com). The set-up optimizes your industrial camera set-up by adding benefits such as uniform illumination, contrast enhancement and shadows reduction. Furthermore, having two bar lights allows you to choose the desired direction of illumination by placing them at a specific angle.

The GeT Cameras team believes that every application benefits from adding machine vision lights, expect brighter and more accurate images as a result. Two machine vision bar lights can be utilized in addition to these basic machine vision lighting methods to solve complex lighting issues. For instance, they can be utilized to produce a "light tunnel" effect that draws attention to an object's texture. Moreover, they can be used to produce a "strobing" effect, which is useful when freezing motion is required. Depending on type of light, the light angle and the separation between the lights and the object, specific effects can be achieved with two machine vision bar lights.
