Specialvideo wishes you the Season’s Greetings and a Happy New Year ❄ Our company will be closed from 23/12/23 to 07/01/2024.
We will regularly resume the activities on Monday 8 January 2024.
Our passion for the most innovative technologies is expressed since the first years of our activity.
Already in the early nineties, Specialvideo realized, in addition to 2D systems:
Just one year after its foundation, in 1994, Specialvideo implemented the first robot guidance with conveyor tracking, and expanded the range of technologies with the introduction of linear cameras and color cameras.
In the same years Specialvideo adopted LED lights, which were not yet a standard and therefore required a special card for adjustment and synchronization with the cameras, which were analogue at the time. In the late nineties, the first digital cameras arrived on the market, which Specialvideo adopted for a rapid evolution of its vision systems.
A rapid succession of new technologies, integrated into our systems year after year, has led us to celebrate 30 years of activity with cutting-edge vision systems.
We thank our team of colleagues, customers, suppliers and partners who make all this possible.
The mass-produced “smart camera” vision systems can sometimes not have the solutions to specific automation needs that industries face to distinguish themselves in their sector. Then you can choose a vision system designed ad hoc by Specialvideo, made with equipment commensurate with its production lines and equipped with software developed in accordance with its production processes.
The project starts from a preliminary study in the laboratory carried out on the samples supplied by the customer, with attention to the specific performance needs, integration into the production line, and possible incorporation into Industry 4.0 projects.
In the creation of an ad hoc designed vision system, the cameras, the optics, and the light sources are specially selected to integrate into the customer’s production line, respecting the spaces of the pre-existing mechanical parts and acquiring images with specially designed lighting. The artificial vision software is developed to achieve the required performance and optimized to process within the normal production process times.
Specialvideo presents a 2D and 3D quality control for biscuits, crackers, breadsticks and leavened products. It can be integrated into robot lines, at a rate of over 1000 pieces/min.
The vision system for the quality control of biscuits verifies the integrity of the shape of the products and checks the fillings such as jam, cream and chocolate by quantity and position.
The application made for biscuits is suitable for other non-regular-shaped products such as crackers, chocolates, breadsticks and other baked goods.
For products as leavened products, in which height is a critical characteristic, we offer three-dimensional controls.
The system visually checks the cooking level. It detects the presence of any foreign bodies and pollutants that cause color anomalies.
Specialvideo presents a quality control of Brilliant Uncirculated coins based on learning the model coin, thanks to which it determines the differences that cause discards, tolerating the variability due to the production process.
The concept of compliant currency is learned by the system by memorizing a series of coins free from gross defects or in any case having defects at different points of the coin. From that series, the system elaborates the model coin, therefore it takes into account the acceptable variability, due to the production process.
