Optical Character Recognition of Direct Part Markings - Dot Peen / Dot Marking

Optical Character Recognition of Direct Part Markings – Dot Peen / Dot Marking

The Challenge:

Dot peened Characters - OCR (Optical Character Recognition) project

OCR (Optical Character Recognition) project

The customer wanted to correctly identify 15 alphanumeric characters which had been laser marked onto the surface of an electrical component. The quality of the part marking was poor and the marked surface uneven in nature.

Our Solution:

A self-contained Vision Camera was used to correctly identified the characters and relayed the information to a PLC for verification of correct codes. The powerful in-built OCR algorithims were able to reliably read the codes even under these challenging conditions. Read rate was approximately 100ms.

Since our foundation in 1967, ABCON has supplied automation controls and sensor technology into most types of manufacturing process and industry sectors. We have always moved with the times, supplying the latest sensing technology as it becomes commercially available. Throughout our history we have continually formed alliances with some of the Worlds leading manufacturers of sensor technology.
