Itasca, IL: KEYENCE Corporation of America, a leading supplier of sensors, measuring systems, laser markers, microscopes, and machine vision systems worldwide has released the IX Series, a new Image-Based Laser Sensor. By combining a camera with a laser, users can now determine part position prior to performing laser assessment, reducing hardware and installation costs. The IX Program will retain the quick-setup simplicity for which Keyence products have become known.


On the impact of KEYENCE's IX Series, Technical Marketing Manager Phil Jarzombeck mentioned, "The IX Series will greatly simplify pass/fail investigations of components by not only helping for target position variance but also allowing for many inspections to be done at once. Upon demonstration, potential users will quickly recognize how over-engineered their current inspection processes are."


The IX Series was created to tackle 4 kinds of inspection situations: Unrepeatable target locations, reference height checks, low-contrast targets and inspections of multiple areas at once:


•              By identifying the target part's position and adjusting inspection accordingly, users are saved from creating mechanical solutions to orientate parts prior to inspection.

•              Performing reference height checks with a single sensor greatly simplifies inspections that previously required multiple sensors and complex calculations.

•              Because the IX Series is laser-based, low-contrast inspections such as height of a black component on a black background are easily determined.

•              The IX Series is capable of inspecting multiple locations at once, saving hardware and installation costs.
