Mechnical Machine Vision Interface

AutoVimation has introduced the Mechnical Machine Vision Interface (MMVI), whereby all required components are fitted with a defined mechanical adapter. Equipped with such a standardised mechanical MMVI interface, all components can be easily assembled with few tools. Mounting brackets from the mechanical construction kit allow users to adjust the units at any angle. This reduces the need for costly and time-consuming design and manufacturing of camera and light holders.

Only eight different quick lock holders are required, for instance, to install virtually any compact camera in a Salamander-type protective housing or mounting block from AutoVimation. Four different light holder adapter plates are sufficient to mount ring or spot lights of various sizes and make them compatible with the MMVI system. Once fitted with an adapter, all components can be easily combined into a complete image processing system by means of the machine vision construction kit.
