A Phantom camera was at the center of research being performed on a section of carpeting. The goal of this study was to find if there was a way to improve the quality of non-woven fabric.  The Miro 4 was able to capture the image while meeting the requirements of portability and being able to operate the camera without a monitor.

The Phantom VEO340 has a 4 Mpx sensor. The large sensor is perfect for detailed subjects and full HD video delivery.

image of combustion

Combustion research in an industrial setting is vital to ensuring employee and consumer safety. Understanding how a combustion engine works and how to improve it increases customer satisfaction and helps to avoid untimely accidents. Researching combustion can be difficult but Phantom cameras have features that enhance those results.

Digital Image Correlation benefits the Industrial market through stress and material testing. By understand the effects of shock and vibration on machine parts and products efficiency in production and products can be expanded. Phantom cameras work well in multi-camera situations like DIC due to easy synchronization.

Microfluidic research in industrial settings can greatly improve machine efficiency. By studying how lubricants work and how fluids move through cooling system machine maintenance becomes more straightforward and easier to troubleshoot. Phantom cameras have the resolutions and sensitivity necessary to study microscopic fluid movement and gather detailed measurements.

image of workflow

Understanding the workflow requirements of high-speed imaging in the industrial situations can reduce machine downtime and product development. Phantom cameras have a variety of options and features that enhance the workflow process whether memory, environment, or data management are a concern. 


Industrial high-speed needs are very specific. Material testing, machine troubleshooting, and stress testing are critical to maintaining top of the line production results. In situations where time is money the proper tool can make all the difference.

The easiest way to decide which camera you will need is to answer four key questions about your facility and its needs.

• Speed - How fast is it going?
• Size & Resolution - How large is the event and what resolution is required?
• Illumination - How much light is required to clearly see the experiment?
• Proximity - How close does the camera need to be to the event?

Regardless of what you are recording, the above will always be important. Please do not hesitate to contact us so that a trained Phantom camera expert can assist you in deciding which camera you will need.

Using cameras to monitor welding processes is nothing new. They help operators control the quality, speed and positioning accuracy of automated welding equipment in dangerous or hard-to-reach areas. That’s where Davi Ribeiro and his colleagues come in. Ribeiro is a member of the Welding Research and Technology Laboratory (LPTS), a Brazil-based research group that falls under the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at the Federal University of Ceará (UFC). The lab focuses on developing new arc welding processes (see sidebar) and utilizes a range of both manual and automated welding equipment—from grinders and cutting blades, to robotic positioning systems and specialized computer software. For the last few years, the lab has also utilized a Phantom v711 high-speed camera from Vision Research, enabling Ribeiro and his colleagues to effectively image welding joints less than 1 mm in diameter.

Thanks to Vision Research’s Phantom v2511, Olson Technologies was able to see what their Plasma Blaster does in an oil well 30 feet underground—notably, the blast reaction and liquid retraction. Whenever a detonation or blast of some kind occurs under a liquid (in this case, oil), the fluid is briefly displaced. As the oil quickly moves to refill the unoccupied space, a powerful vacuum is created, which sucks the loosened debris into the bottom of the Plasma Blaster. By utilizing the vacuum in this way, Olson Technologies removes the original source of the clog and lessens the chances that another issue will happen in the future. Keep Reading

Whether in a lab, outside, or on a TV/Movie production site there are important considerations when preparing to utilize a high-speed camera. Lighting, power sources, cable reach, and portability are all parts of establishing a workflow process. The whitepaper, "Optimizing Workflow for High-Speed Imaging Applications," discusses these considerations and the corresponding data management necessary to get the shot. Learn about how to prepare your sessions so that the most effective methods and accessories are used. Keep Reading
