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.
Also in research and development you have to solve many small and big problems to achieve a breakthrough. Many R&D departments therefore want to invest in high speed camera systems. After all, new discoveries and significant resource savings are possible.
What are the benefits of using a high-speed camera system?
With a high-speed camera system, many different applications and problems can be analyzed in detail.
One of the most famous analyses of the last years was carried out with the fastest high-speed camera in the world. This was necessary because it was about the analysis of light. The Slow Mo Guys made a video about this topic:
Also very interesting is this recording of a process that many people experience every day. How does the ink get onto the paper in the printer?
Watch Drop Test
In the development of a very good watch, it is important how the watch reacts to external influences and shocks. Many watch manufacturers in Switzerland rely on our cameras and use them regularly.
High-speed camera in the packaging industry
The packaging industry depends on the smooth functioning of the filling lines.
Especially when productivity increases due to filling close to the capacity limit, problems with the filling lines can occur. An analysis of slow motion recordings shows possible problems which can then be quickly solved.
For very fast high-speed cameras, however, the investment is high and the system is usually not flexible. Therefore, every application is only possible with prior planning and an increased expenditure of time. For this reason these systems are rather not suitable for fast analyses. High End Highspeed cameras are profitable for more complex problems and applications.
However, there is a solution for this problem: A mobile high speed camera system. Such systems are highly flexible and can be set up and ready for use within a very short time.
What are mobile high-speed cameras?
A major factor for the lack of flexibility is usually the need for a computer with the necessary software. This means that in such a case you need to set up a computer or laptop, the software and the high speed camera. For big problems or a stationary use such systems are very well suited.
Mostly, however, there are various problems in development that you want to analyze. Mobile high speed systems therefore make a lot of sense. They are quickly ready for use, small and light and can record a process even for a longer time.
Promon Scope G3
An example for a mobile high speed camera system is the AOS Promon Scope G3. It consists of a portable screen in the form of a tablet, including a touch screen. Everything is perfectly adjusted to the high speed camera and even includes a lithium ion battery. When using two cameras simultaneously, a battery life of 1.5 hours is possible. In total you can record up to 40 minutes at a time, optionally even up to 80 minutes. In addition, the system can be operated with one battery. This makes you completely independent of power connections.
Thanks to these features you can record and analyse a production line, filling plant or a process in research and development in great detail. For an accurate recording you can set event markers and have movements recorded automatically. After recording, you can even perform analysis directly on the tablet.
Due to the possibility of battery operation, it is even possible to carry out operations that were previously difficult to carry out due to a lack of power supply.
With the important high-speed recordings you can continue your research and solve recurring problems very easily.
A mobile high-speed camera system brings you a clear added value in the form of a better and faster analysis. Even with relatively low investments you can increase your productivity and avoid long downtimes of machines and plants. In research and development you are able to improve your products even further and make your customers even more satisfied.
So that you can convince yourself, there is the possibility to rent a system from us. Previous knowledge is also not necessary, because one of our experts is always on site and takes the recordings. These are then made available to you.
