Product description

PC-based control specialist Beckhoff has expanded its established, highly successful TwinCAT product range to include TwinCAT Vision, an integrated image processing solution. This addition underscores the increasing importance of image processing as a quality factor across mechanical engineering, particularly in applications like Industrie 4.0, quality optimisation, and track-and-trace.
PC-based control offers an ideal solution here: TwinCAT Vision adds image processing to a universal control platform that incorporates PLC, motion control, robotics, high-end measurement technology, IoT and HMI. This simplifies engineering significantly in that it allows camera configuration and programming tasks to be carried out in the familiar PLC environment. In addition, all control functions related to image processing can be synchronised in the runtime system precisely, in real time. Latency is eliminated, and the image processing algorithms execute in real time. This marks a major quality advance over conventional machine vision solutions. With TwinCAT Vision, machine builders can fully integrate image processing Tasks into the central control system, paving the way for more advanced machine designs that are capable of satisfying tomorrow's marketplace demands, and offer enhanced competitiveness and investment security.
