Already friends for many years, SVS-VISTEK and BlueVision joined forces in September 2018 to market their products. BlueVision offers a wide range of area and line scan cameras for SWIR and the normal optical wavelength range. SVS-Vistek is now marketing these products in the German-speaking region.
Japanese camera maker BlueVision works in two key areas:
These two technologies are combined to enable a single camera to deliver images simultaneously in the normal optical range as well as in the SWIR range. This is made possible by special prism-spectroscopic technologies that break down the spectrum from visible light to SWIR (short wave infrared) into differing wave lengths.
Using BlueVision cameras, it is possible to detect differentiators for various types of non-destructive testing effectively, e.g. for inspecting electronic components, fruit, food, tablets and other packed goods. These cameras also offer technically and economically interesting scope for recycling and for separating plastics.
The highlights of the BlueVision range include a prism-based area scan camera with three sensors for RGB and SXGA resolution, prism-based line scan cameras for two selectable SWIR ranges or the combination of SWIR and visible light as well as line scan cameras with InGaAs sensors with or without cooling – covering a wavelength range from 900 to 2,600 nm.
“BlueVision’s innovative prism-based cameras perfectly complement our own range of cameras,” explains Andreas Schaarschmidt, CMO of SVS-Vistek. “With our new partner’s cameras, we are able to provide optimum support for users who want to differentiate materials destruction-free in the SWIR range or on the basis of their spectroscopic characteristics in the development of high-performance solutions for these markets.”
