Image Processing: Color Extraction
This is the First in a New Series of Technical Guides that Explain Image Processing Techniques and Methods.
A New Guide for Measuring Instruments!
Selection Guide for Workpiece Measurement—Large Workpiece Edition
This is the guide that you have been waiting for! Following up on our beginner's guide, which received rave reviews, we have compiled this guide, which contains ways to select measuring instruments depending on the target workpiece. We hope that users looking to select new measuring instruments will download this guide.
Automatic Counting of Foreign Substances and Contaminants with Particle Analysis
By using the particle analysis function of KEYENCE's latest digital microscope, it is possible to automatically count the foreign substances and contaminants within the field of view. Use this digital microscope to automate inspections done by human operators such as counting, area, and perimeter.
NEW Powerful Autofocus Code Reader Sets New Standard for Code Reading
With just the push of a button, the SR-1000 Series of 1D and 2D code readers can easily read most barcodes - even the conventionally difficult DPM codes.
NEW Ultra-compact 1D and 2D Code Reader with Improved Reading Capabilities
With its advanced processing abilities in a compact body, the SR-700 can accurately read codes that are dirty, tilted, or moving at high speeds.
A Optical Comparator That Can Measure Virtual Lines without Needing to Perform Calculations
The IM Series image dimension measurement system can perform measurements of virtual lines—which have conventionally required calculations—in just 3 seconds. We hope that you will read this collection of measurement examples of virtual lines. This is a must-read document for anyone who is using optical comparators and measuring microscopes.
Cut Your Sensor Stock in Half
With increased repeatability and durable (stainless steel) housing, the LR-Z series is the replacement for most detection sensors in major manufacturing facilities.
Detections That Were Difficult with Reflective Sensors Can Be Done Easily with This Vision Sensor!
Because it captures the whole surface of the target, the Vision Sensor IV Series solves the following problems that are common with reflective sensors.

Unstable detections due to position misalignment
Unstable detections due to uncertain workpiece orientation
Inability to perform simultaneous detections of multiple locations
Bothersome sensor adjustments during retooling

For details on how to solve these problems, see the catalog.
