Shining a light on lenses

Stemmer Imaging’s series of technology days included talks from various lens manufacturers. Here, we round up some of what was discussed at the event

Ruggedization of imaging lenses

This article is brought to you by: 

Imaging lenses used in many industrial machine vision applications have special requirements beyond those of standard imaging lenses. The lenses used in factory automation, robotics, and industrial inspection have to work in specific and demanding environments, which could involve vibrations, shocks, temperature changes, and contaminants. Because of these environmental requirements, new classes of ruggedized lenses are being designed specifically to work in a multitude of different scenarios, therefore creating different types of ruggedization. There are three distinct types of ruggedization available: Industrial Ruggedization, Ingress Protection Ruggedization, and Stability Ruggedization.
