Chromasens stands for „color“ and „sensor technology“ – our central objective is developing customized systems for high-quality image capturing in 2D and 3D and the development of line scan camera systems, 3D- and multispectral cameras and high-intensity LED light sources.
Chromasens GmbH was founded in 2004 and produces industrial image processing systems for a wide application field. Color line scan cameras, lighting technology for industrial image processing as well as software for optimized use of our products is just to name a few.
Customers from all sorts of industrial branches – ranging from electronics and semiconductor inspection, food inspection, print inspection up to medical engineering and security technology – make use of Chromasens’ product expertise and solution skills. Our engineers and scientists work closely with the customers in order to implement the best possible industrial image processing system for their specific needs.
The performance of an image capturing system is influenced by the combination of its individual components. Optimum results in industrial image capture can be achieved if the components fit perfectly with customer-specific requirements.
The engineers and scientists at Chromasens have been dealing with the conversion of light into corresponding signals for more than 22 years. Both a diligent design and the selection of suitable CCD or CMOS sensors documented by numerous measurements are fundamental to exceptionally good camera systems. Our current sensors capture the visible spectrum and near infrared from 360 to 960 nm. By using the most suitable sensors we develop highly optimized camera systems for our customers up to complex scanning systems.
Whether fluorescent objects or infrared colors – illumination is an essential component that we develop to suit your specific application. Engineers trained in light technology and mechanical engineering carry out material research for us. They evaluate new technologies and develop special manufacturing processes for optical surfaces. State-of-the-art measurement and analysis facilities, such as the ZEMAX optical development software, are available. Thus, customer-specific high-performance illumination for most varied wavelengths, including the UV, VIS and IR ranges, is created in close cooperation with universities and LED manufacturers.
Chromasens truePIXA technology with its spectral camera system is the ideal basis for the most exigent color measurement technology demands (e.g. in printing technology). It allows complete object color measurements in the Lab color space to be made at lightning speed and at any desired location, thus enabling absolute statements to be made based on ∆E.
Chromasens has also developed a new kind of process for color 3D surface measurement based on our own, trilinear CCD line scan camera technology. The variable system is based on stereoscopic capture and supports accurate height measurement to a resolution of 1 µm.
Image capture solutions developed by Chromasens have been successfully employed in the most diverse industrial segments for decades. The printing industry, postal automation, document archiving, security and safety technology, medical technology or the food industry, are but a few examples among many.
In endeavouring to support its customers with solutions that are optimally attuned to their respective requirements, Chromasens has developed a multifaceted, industry-specific expertise.
Application fields include:
For more than 22 years Chromasens has been developing and supplying customized image capturing and line scan camera systems which are used for consistent metrological color image capturing. Our focus is on the integral treatment of all the components of the camera system, beginning with the light source to lens and sensors up to image processing. The optical, electronic and mechanical elements of high-performance cameras and illumination systems are finely adapted to suit the specific requirements made by each individual customer.
Your specification defines our production. We work closely with you to draw up the concept, putting emphasis on an application-oriented yet cost-efficient overall system.
