Injecting Mold Protection Method Based on Machine Vision
Aimed at solving the problem of mold damage caused by a foreign body in the mold before mold clamping, this paper proposes a solution, which applies image processing technology such as background updating and the difference image algorithm to solve it. Not only can it judge whether there is a foreign body in the mold but it can also detect whether the product is perfect by comparing the foreground image with the background image at the appropriate time (before mold clamping or after mold opening) and by calculating the qualified rate of pixel in all ROIs (Region of Interest). To eliminate the influence of vibration and of changes in brightness in the surrounding environment on the detecting results, this paper utilizes near infrared illumination technology and the background updating algorithm. In addition, the ROI is set to improve the detecting speed and accuracy.
