Hyperspectral cameras extend the range of traditional imaging applications
Hyperspectral imaging extends the application range of commonly used grayscale and color cameras.
Hyperspectral cameras record over 100 different wavelengths, covering a much broader color spectrum from UV to infrared light. The ability to visualize the infrared spectrum enables the precise identification of specific material signatures or "material fingerprinting". As a result, materials can be clearly identified and classified based on their chemical composition.
New technologies also assist in complying with new or changing industrial regulations: They significantly speed up analyses, enable repeatable measurements and use durable components that withstand even harsh industrial conditions.
While conventional camera technology is used to optimize and shorten automated production and maintenance processes and increase the quality, productivity and safety of production-related manual and visual inspection and measurement tasks, there are certain industries where grayscale or color cameras are simply unable to achieve the desired results, for example, when it comes to visually differentiating substances with seemingly identical colors or textures.
Wherever conventional image processing systems are unable to provide detailed material analyses, hyperspectral imaging offers an entire range of new possibilities.
The examples listed above are only a few industries that benefit from hyperspectral imaging. PSI Technics specializes in offering individual solutions for complex problems. Contact us today to learn more about our hyperspectral imaging portfolio.
Organic substances, particularly water, lipids or proteins, can be easily distinguished using Chemical Color Imaging (CCI). The composition of meat products, for example, can be measured using hyperspectral imaging without touching or destroying meat samples. The same method can be applied to identify unripe, overripe or spoiled food in the food industry.
Hyperspectral imaging helps to precisely identify changes in material structure and enable the unmistakable identification of coating damages or contaminations. Different plastics such as PVC, PETE, PP and PS can reliably be inspected with this method.
Pharmaceutical agents that seem almost identical to the human eye can have distinctly different properties. Hyperspectral analysis enables a clear distinction of those agents based on their chemical composition.
The efficiency and productivity of recycling processes can be increased by automatically sorting or filtering out materials using hyperspectral imaging methods.
Humidity can have a significant impact on the quality of wood. Hyperspectral imaging is used to measure the moisture content and to increase product quality.
Raw materials / Commodities industry:
Camera technology has proven especially beneficial for process tasks in demanding work environments. Hyperspectral imaging can also be used in the raw materials or mining industry to differentiate between and identify different minerals and types of rock.

The ARATEC's FLP6000AOC software reduces mast oscillations – even of highly dynamic stacker cranes – to a minimum. The test setup shows that the ARATEC Positioning Solution System with enabled FLP6000AOC compensates for mast oscillations in near-real time, even when the oscillations are caused by external disturbances.
