Bright Field vs. Dark Field Lighting Techniques

Determining whether to apply lights in a bright field versus dark field geometry is one of the more difficult decisions facing Machine Vision engineers. Both techniques have advantages and disadvantages: whereas bright field (BF) lighting is a more common application for most inspections, dark field (DF) lighting has a more specific and limited set of requirements for its successful application. We will concentrate on a comparison between the two using common vision applications.

The Image is Everything

Machine vision lighting includes both industrial and non-industrial applications where a combination of hardware and software provide operational guidance to devices in the execution of their functions based on the capture and processing of images. Lighting is critical to render visibility to the object to be imaged; other necessary elements are optics to focus the […]
