BBULL IMAGE
Quality Management with Multifunctional Image Processing
GENERAL INTRODUCTION
BBULL IMAGE is a flexible all-purpose im-
age processing system for integrated quality
assurance in any automated production line.
The system consists of a central operation
and processing unit BBULL PC-5000 and, de-
pending on the application, at least one in-
spection bridge for installation on the conveyor or in the machine. Because of the modular design, BBULL IMAGE can be easily adapted and extended to many requirements. Even for individual solutions technique and cost efforts are always in a reasonable balance.
MECHANICAL CONFIGURATION
Depending on the application different mechan-
ical constructions of the camera / illumination
units will be projected. This ensures always
ideal conditions for the inspection of the speci-
fied criteria on the product.
Basically the optical inspection bridge in-
cludes one or, application depending, several
high-resolution CCD- cameras with low-
wearing LED-illumination units, installed in a
high-quality waterproof stainless steal housing.
For the acquisition of the object in the inspec-
tion area and the following subsequent track-
ing to a rejection system, only two external
signals will be necessary. Also in this respect,
just a few improvements can be done in ad-
vance, e.g. if for installation inside a labeler, the available signals of the labeler can be
used. This reduces the composition of redun-
dant signal sources which results in an optimal use of present resources. The
operation of these
signals and the precise
release of the control-
signals for camera and
flash-illumination is
done in a independent
working real-time proc-
essing module, which is in permanent communication with the image proc-
essing system. Operation and visualization of BBULL IMAGE is done in one central operation unit with 15” graphic touch display.

SOFTWARE
BBULL IMAGE takes one image of every
single test object. The image will be process-
ed and inspected in the processing board by windows-based inspection software. A continu-
ously growing multiplicity of different proc-
essing-algorithms, result in an almost hundred
-percent precision of the inspection.
With the completely computer-based operation
of the high-resolution digital images no contact
to the object is applicable. This ensures, along
with the high speed, also a changeover-han-
dling as easy as possible. After adjustment of
the inspection functions the complete configu-ration of the applied inspection tools, including the camera set-up, camera adjustment and further parameter can be memorized in a type-related configuration file. Thus, after a first set-up phase a fast manual changeover is possible.
The number of the stored assortment is only limited by the hard-disc memory.
The service-mode allows a verification and adaptation of the exact inspection function and the collaboration of the inspection tools.
All menu-structures are clearly arranged and designed for intuitive operation, which allows a fast arrangement and recall of the required data.
For the definition of the inspection features the software presents a number of different inspec-
tion tools, like the measurement of absolute and relative positions of the features, text, logo or barcode inspections as well as grey-value analyses.
