Microscan Presents AutoVISION at Korea Vision Show 2012

Microscan recently presented its diverse product line at the Korea Vision Show, a new, specialized machine vision exhibition that took place this year from April 3rd through 6th in Seoul.

SEOUL, KOREA, April 2012 -Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions, recently presented its diverse product line at the Korea Vision Show, a new, specialized machine vision exhibition that took place this year from April 3rd through 6th in Seoul. Microscan participated alongside Jintech, its distribution partner in South Korea, and showcased its AutoVISION suite of machine vision products. The new technology line was well received by the show attendees, who came from a broad range of industries, representative of Korea's growing machine vision market.


Machine vision is being widely implemented into inspection lines in several industries in Korea, including electronics manufacturing, where the technology continues to receive positive feedback due to the rapid growth of Korea's IT sector. Microscan's suite of intuitive and scalable AutoVISION machine vision products meets the demands of this growing market and answers a need for high performance, flexible vision inspection in Korea's key industries. The AutoVISION product suite includes user-friendly inspection software and two powerful smart cameras - Vision MINI and Vision HAWK - which may be widely applied to applications for 1D/2D barcode reading & verification, as well as vision inspection processes.

"Our AutoVISION solution enables simplified machine vision, making it possible even for users with little to no experience in vision technology to set up and implement machine vision applications," said Jonathan Ludlow, Machine Vision Product Manager at Microscan. "The AutoVISION suite helps manufacturers reduce defects and increase efficiency in a wide range of applications. Thanks to our solution, companies already scanning barcodes for part identification or traceability can now also easily implement verification and quality checks by incorporating optical character recognition (OCR) on human-readable text." In addition, AutoVISION software contains locate, count, measure, and presence/absence tools that support a wide range of assembly verification, dimensional checking, and inspection applications across the packaging sector as well as laboratory automation and electronics markets.

"We believe that AutoVISION is a unique solution in the industry. It is ideal for beginners to machine vision, but also offers job portability across programming environments and scalability across platforms," Ludlow concluded.

Its dynamic capabilities made AutoVISION a high point at this year's Korea Vision Show. Local interest in Microscan's product line was very strong, especially among distributors and systems integrators seeking a single manufacturing company to source a broad range of technologies and products for Auto ID and machine vision.

"Participating in the Korea Vision Show has substantially increased our customer awareness among machine vision users and integrators," stated Moonsoo Kim, Regional Sales Manager for Korea at Microscan. "Microscan manufactures all of these products, plus we have a complete line of Auto ID barcode readers such as laser scanners, 2D imagers, and verifiers. With Microscan, distributors and systems integrators can source all barcode and machine vision products from a single company."

Microscan products exhibited at the Korea Vision Show 2012 include: AutoVISION software, Vision MINI smart camera, Vision HAWK smart camera, Visionscape® machine vision software, Visionscape® VS-1 smart camera, Visionscape® GigE solution, NERLITE® machine vision lighting, QX Hawk liquid lens imager, and MINI Hawk 2D barcode imager.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
