Lakeview

Vision

&

Robotics,

of

Chicago,

Illinois,

and

STRobotics

of

Cambridge,

UK

announce

a

new

techn
ology

for

the

inspection

and

measurement

of

bone

screws

using

an

automated

optical

comparator

process.


Using

a

completely

digital

process,

the

technology

compares

images

of

a

screw

in

inspection

to

images

of

a


golden

screw

(first

article

inspection)

thr
ough

an

18

step

rotation

and,

for

each

comparison,

displays

a

difference

result

based

on

a

subtraction

of

the


golden

image.

Mechanical

variations

are

compensated

through

proprietary

algorithms.

Images

are

resolved

at

a

resolution

of
less

than

.002

.

Each

18 image
inspection

takes

approximately

2.5

minutes.


The

Automated

Optical

Comparator

Technology

can

be

also

be

used

to

calculate
screw

holding

power,

major

and

minor

diameters,

flank

angles,

and

other

critical

measures.


STRobotics

and

LVR

have

a

combin
ed

50

years

of

experience

in

robotics

and

machine

vision.
