Fids-on-the-Fly™ high-speed fiducial capture software is up to 5.5X faster than the traditional stop-and-capture for locating fiducials and can increase UPH as much as 35 percent
In stop-and-capture mode, the camera pauses to locate each fiducial. With Nordson ASYMTEK’s Fids-on-the-Fly software, the camera is always in motion, capturing images on the fly. With high-speed capture the more fiducials required, the greater the time savings. Fids-on-the-Fly software is ideal for applications with over 8 fiducials and up to 2800 (1400 per lane for dual lane applications).
How It Works
Nordson ASYMTEK’s Fluidmove® software calculates a spline travel path based on the programmed fiducial locations in the dispense program. Once the path for all fiducials is calculated, image-capture is performed at maximum acceleration and velocity without stopping. Fids-on-the-Fly software uses a high-speed digital camera that operates at 60 frames per second. High-intensity on-axis LED lighting with adjustable red, green and blue (RGB) light levels enable reliable fiducial capture for even the most difficult applications.
