Designed to help pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers achieve unit-level product traceability, the In-Sight® Track-and-Trace add-on software package for Cognex In-Sight vision systems delivers a ready-to-deploy data capture and verification solution.
Cognex offers its DataMan 7500V handheld verifier, which is the first handheld verification unit that accurately verifies the quality of direct-marked and printed 2D codes for manufacturers implementing traceability programs in the automotive, aerospace, electronics, healthcare, and defense industries, company says.
Cognex offers its affordable, capable, and easy-to-use entry-level DVT® 515 and DVT 535 vision sensors. Sensors handle a broad range of applications and make it easy for users to combine vision tools to inspect, measure, count, find features, and compare patterns in order to automate inspection and ensure quality.
Cognex has announced the availability of free Checker™ trial software that can be downloaded with the latest Checker version 1.3 release. The simple-to-use and inexpensive sensor detects the presence of parts and parts features, and recognizes patterns.
The Cognex VisionPro PC vision software now supports the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET programming environment. VisionPro users can easily integrate third-party .NET objects into their vision applications and readily integrate vision applications with their automation systems.
The LPVS label print/verification system from Nutec integrates the Wolke m600 printing system—equipped with Hewlett-Packard’s digital thermal ink-jet printing technology—to print reduced-space symbology (RSS) and 2D datamatrix bar codes onto a label transport system.
The In-Sight 5110 fixed-mount reader from Cognex provides highly reliable levels of real-time 1D and 2D code reading performance. In addition, the 5110 reader supports ISO mark quality metrics for real-time 1D and 2D code verification at mark and read stations.
Cognex has expanded its family of In-Sight vision sensors to include the 5100 and 5400 models. Said to provide 4 times the processing power of comparably priced vision sensors, these models feature a rugged industrial design and meet IEC specifications for shock and vibration.
IDMax, from Cognex, is designed for Direct Part Mark Identification (DPMI), said to be a fast-emerging segment of the industrial ID market that involves directly marking parts with permanent 2D data-matrix codes, then reliably reading those codes throughout the production process.
Cognex introduces the In-Sight® Explorer™, a software package designed to complement the company’s family of In-Sight vision sensors. In addition to the established parts identification, assembly verification, and guidance functions common to the In-Sight family, Explorer includes tools for handling integration, monitoring and management of vision sensors on the line.
Cognex offers the MVS-8501 frame grabber for high-speed analog cameras. Machine is designed for the next generation of high-speed analog cameras that use the latest progressive scan CCD sensor technology.
Cognex introduces PatFlex™ geometric pattern-finding technology. The software tool enables a vision system to locate an object, feature, or pattern that has perspective that changes or a surface that is curved, warped, wrinkled, or stretched.
