Microscan to Showcase Advanced Auto ID and Machine Vision Technologies at IAS 2012

Microscan, a global leader in barcode, vision, and lighting technologies, will demonstrate its track, trace and control solutions for the automation industry in Booth W1C018 in Hall 1 at the Industrial Automation Show 2012 (IAS 2012) trade show November 6-10, 2012.

BEIJING, CHINA, October 25, 2012 - Microscan, a global leader in barcode, vision, and lighting technologies, will demonstrate its track, trace and control solutions for the automation industry in Booth W1C018 in Hall 1 at the Industrial Automation Show 2012 (IAS 2012) trade show to be held at Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) from November 6 to 10, 2012.


Microscan will be showcasing the latest AutoVISION™ machine vision product suite. The AutoVISION™ line, which includes the Vision MINI and Vision HAWK smart cameras along with an intuitive software interface, provides simplified setup and deployment of machine vision applications, along with a powerful tool set for reliable, high performance inspection and identification. Recent enhancements to the line include the addition of a two megapixel Vision HAWK C-Mount camera and expanded capabilities in the AutoVISION™ operating software.

Microscan will also demonstrate high speed industrial barcode reading solutions such as the QX-870 and MS-9; and the QX HAWK, MINI HAWK, and other 2D code and direct part mark (DPM) decoding solutions. Microscan's wide range of advanced vision, barcode reading, and lighting technology helps manufactures meet traceability requirements, reduce costs, and ensure accuracy in their process.

Microscan prides itself on bringing ground-breaking solutions to market since its start in 1982, when founder Mike Mertel integrated a laser diode into a barcode scanner, producing a smaller, faster, and safer barcode reading solution. Today, Microscan represents the convergence of multiple separate, equally innovative histories. With the 2008 acquisition of Siemens Machine Vision business, Microscan's genealogy not only includes Mertel's pioneering auto ID line, but a history in machine vision that spans more than three decades and milestones such as the invention of the popular 2D code, Data Matrix.

Zaber's Fastest, Longest Travel Stage

Zaber's Fastest, Longest Travel Stage

Zaber's new and improved stage (X-BLQ-E) is a closed-loop, belt-driven motorized linear stage with built-in motor encoder and controller. With travel lengths up to 3 m, 10 µm repeatability, and a maximum speed of 2.0 m/s, X-BLQ-E stages are perfect for rapid positioning over large distances. A built-in motor encoder allows closed-loop operation and slip/stall recovery, and an optional indexed knob provides manual control for operation without a computer. Like all Zaber products, the X-BLQ-E Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
