NEXCOM's new ROKA series allows for clear vision in machine automation systems, enabling production to pick up the pace and raising the standards in quality inspection procedures. Aimed at machine vision for industrial applications, the ROKA machine vision series encompasses a selection of cameras, lenses, and lights to capture quality images for use in robot guidance, object recognition, and defect inspection applications.

To fulfill different speed and precision requirements of machine automation processes, NEXCOM ROKA cameras offer three combinations of image capture resolutions and frame rates. The ROKA 30 is a 0.3-megapixel camera which can generate one hundred images per second. The high-speed camera can accelerate machining processes by providing workpiece alignments and giving visual guidance with reduced cycle time; and help with tasks such as time-consuming 100% inspection, mundane pallet stacking, and dangerous heavy lifting.

The ROKA 130 has a higher resolution of 1.3 megapixel and 60 fps. The ROKA 130 can perform profile inspection on metal parts and components and collaborate with pick-and-place robots on material sorting and product packaging. Meanwhile, the ROKA 500 featuring 5-megapixel capability and 15 fps support is intended for high precision inspection. With manufactured parts shrinking in size and demand for precision growing stringent, the ROKA 500 can find defects with tolerance measured in hundredths of a millimeter, capturing subtle nuances that are hardly visible to the human eye.

To provide optimum angle of coverage for machine vision, the ROKA series offers RK-C1614, RK-C2514 and RK-C3518 lenses with field-of-view of 37.2, 24.7, and 18 degrees, respectively, to adapt to the dimensions of an inspection area. Also, the ROKA series is available with an LED bar array light, backlight, and ring light which are designed to create multi-angle illumination, even and low-density lighting, and area lighting to enhance image capture quality.

NEXCOM ROKA machine vision series belongs to NEXCOM NexMotion machine automation solution family which consists of motion control platform, machine vision, SoftMotion programming tool, servo motors and I/O modules to build industrial robots, distributed control systems, general motion control systems, and CNC machines.
