Learn how to create automated programs using the Program Toolbox.

Overview

An overview of how to use the Program Toolbox to create automated inspection programs in VisionGauge® OnLine.

Image Capture

Capture live images or read-in previously captured images on which to perform further operations.

Image Overlay

Load DXF overlays and control Auto-Pass/Fail settings and results in automated programs.

Settings Toolbox Recall and Setting Illumination

The Settings Toolbox stores various pre-configured settings, including calibrations, multi-mag selection, illumination, and more.

Save to Disk

Automatically save images from your program to the hard drive or network during program operation.

Pattern Matching

Pattern matching locates a previously-defined pattern within the current image to sub-pixel accuracy and produces a Pass / Fail result based on the match criteria that you supply.

Wait & Display Message & Pause Program

The Wait, Display Message, and Pause Program steps allow moments in your automated program for operator input, waiting for certain conditions before continuing operation, and pausing the entire program in the middle of operation.

Measurements

Perform automated measurements during  program operation.

Counting and Sizing

VisionGauge® OnLine’s Counting & Sizing tool carries out automated “blob analysis” calculations, perfect for quickly, reliably and accurately identifying, measuring and characterizing objects with arbitrary shapes.

Statistics and Data Groups

The Statistics and Data Groups tool is used in a program to test a value in a data group against tolerances and perform certain operations based on the result of this test.

Conditional Operations with Jump

The Jump operation controls the flow of a program based certain conditions having been met.

Motion Control

The Program Toolbox’s Motion Control tool allows you to include automated stage motion in programs in VisionGauge OnLine’s motorized stage versions. This step covers all automated motion, including Auto-Focus, setting and moving to stage positions, position offsets, and more…

Use VisionGauge® OnLine to compare a part to its CAD DXF file with our Auto-Align™ and Auto-Pass/Fail™ features.

Overlay Toolbox

The Overlay Toolbox allows you to load and manage CAD/DXF overlay files.

Overlay Translation/Rotation Window

Manually control overlay positions, translation, rotation, and Auto-Align in the Overlay Translation/Rotation window.

Auto-Pass/Fail Settings

VisionGauge® OnLine allows you to automatically test how well your part fits to a CAD overlay and can give a single Pass or Fail result based on multiple tests of the part to the CAD file.

Control Sections

Control sections are point locations on the CAD file where the software will test to see if the part currently lies within a tolerance, giving either a Pass or a Fail value.

Entities

Entity-based Auto Pass/Fail uses multiple points on a single CAD file entity (Arc, line, spline, etc.) where the software will test at these points to see if the part currently lies within the entity tolerance, giving either a Pass or a Fail value.

Learn how to collect and manage inspection result in Data Groups, as well as how to output data to external programs for reporting and databasing.

Data Groups

VisionGauge® OnLine’s Data Groups allows you to collect results and data in the form of Numerical and Pass/Fail values, Character Strings and Pass/Fail values, or Pass/Fail values only, and compute statistics as programs are running.

Working with Excel™

Program results and data can be automatically sent to Excel™ during operation for customized reporting.

The following videos demonstrate how to perform various types of measurements with the VisionGauge® OnLine software. The videos show how to perform manual measurements, but the same principals for each measurement can also be used to setup automated measurements in the Program Toolbox.

Measurement Toolbox

The Measurement toolbox allows users to pre-define and then store different measurement tools by clicking the appropriate button in the toolbox.

General Measurements

General measurements are basic measurement types (e.g. simple point-to-point, horizontal, vertical, radius/diameter, angle measurements).

Calipers Measurements

Calipers measurements report the distance between opposite sides of an object.

Marker-to-Marker Measurements

The marker-to-marker measurement tools are designed to carry out measurements between two “markers”. This allows mixing various types of measurement markers to perform complex measurements.

Circle & Threshold Object Measurements

These types of Circle measurements return the radius or diameter of a circle defined as a thresholded object.

Trace Width Measurements

The Trace Width measurement tool can measure the vertical or horizontal trace width by defining a Region of Interest (ROI).

Laser Profiling Measurements

Laser Profiling involves projecting one or multiple laser lines at a specified angle relative to the optical centerline. You can then carry out height / depth measurements (i.e. 3D measurements) by measuring the offset of the projections on a 2D image. Z-axis measurements can typically be carried out with the same speed as X and Y-axis measurements.
