There is another important milestone in the now 74-year history of Chromos AG: Chromos AG and FUJIFILM (Switzerland) AG, which have been part of our group of companies for many years, are merging to form Chromos Group AG on 1 July 2020. Technological changes and economic challenges require ever greater flexibility in order to develop efficient and future-proof solutions as a bridge builder in the triangle with customers and suppliers.
We are proud that FUJIFILM can make a contribution to the fight against the corona virus.
FUJIFILM is in the third phase of clinical trials with the drug Avigan. These tests are designed to verify how safe and effective the antiviral drug, also known as favipiravir, really is. The clinical trials are being conducted in Japan on Covid-19 patients.
Nous souhaitons par la présente vous informer de l'état d'avancement de nos mesures visant à réduire la propagation du virus Corona et à assurer la sécurité de nos employés, clients, fournisseurs et partenaires et de leurs familles.
There are many reasons for using a high-speed camera system. In addition to buying a high-speed camera, you may also consider hiring a high-speed specialist. Our experts will be happy to assist you and fulfill your orders for slow motion recordings of your applications.
High-speed cameras are used by many companies to solve problems, optimize production or develop new innovative products.
The human eye cannot see all details in fast processes.
Just think of a bottling plant that fills thousands of bottles per hour. If you want to further increase the speed and thus your productivity, problems may occur during filling. With a high speed camera you can now record the filling process and then play it back at a much slower speed and then analyse it.
What is Deep Learning?
Deep learning is something we encounter more and more often. Almost every industry magazine, online magazine and many newsletters write about it. You too have probably heard or read about it.
Often it is only clear that Deep Learning exists and what successes can be generated with it. Maybe you are wondering whether you can also use Deep Learning and what possibilities there are for you. Who wouldn't want to further improve their productivity and the quality of their products?
New 3D camera: Basler blaze
Basler launches a new time-of-flight camera for real-time 3D shooting, the Basler blaze. The new design and various interfaces make it suitable for a wide range of applications.
Functionality of a 3D Camera
A ToF camera is based on measuring the time it takes for light to travel from the light source to the object and back again. The greater the distance, the longer the light needs for this path. From this data the distance can be calculated. The software of the ToF camera displays the individual measuring points in a 3D point cloud.
Particularly in industrial image processing, harsh conditions often prevail. Camera systems must be able to withstand shocks, vibrations and rapid accelerations in particular, for example in robotics applications. At the same time, however, a high-quality and high-resolution image should also be taken.
Until some time ago, this was a contradiction in terms. It was hardly possible to create high-resolution images under vibrations or shocks. Today, however, this is possible with special lenses and most FUJINON lens series are now available as shock and vibration resistant models.
Basler boost: The camera with CoaXPress 2.0
With the new Basler boost series, Basler sets new standards in industrial image processing.
CoaXPress was previously only available at speeds of up to 6.25 Gbps. With CPX 2.0, throughput speeds of up to 12.5 Gbps are now possible. This opens up completely new possibilities and makes it possible, for example, to use high-resolution sensors. The Basler boost series is now available with this interface. Up to a cable length of 40 meters, the camera delivers high resolutions and high frame rates.
In addition to the camera, Basler also offers the camera with interface card in the Basler boost bundle.
