Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions, announces that it will host an educational webinar titled "ID and Inspection from Can to Carton" - an exploration of the role of barcode (or auto ID) and machine vision technology in food and beverage packaging.

RENTON, WA, November 6, 2012 - Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions, announces that it will host an educational webinar titled "ID and Inspection from Can to Carton" - an exploration of the role of barcode (or auto ID) and machine vision technology in food and beverage packaging. The presentation and live question and answer session are free to attend, and will take place during two live web broadcasts: November 14 at 10 A.M. PST (Seattle) / 1 P.M. EST (Boston) and November 15 at 4 P.M. CET (Amsterdam) / 10 A.M. EST (Boston).


Packaging operations are becoming more sophisticated. Today's automated, intelligent processes rely on the transfer of data from the factory floor to centralized systems that help manufacturers achieve a number of objectives, from improving product quality, to ensuring regulatory compliance, to achieving supply chain visibility. In this webinar, follow a can of green beans from seamer to pallet on its journey through an automated packaging process. The webinar tours a food and beverage packaging line, stopping at key inspection points to observe how automation solutions like machine vision and barcode technologies help manufacturers meet important quality requirements while improving overall production efficiency. After the presentation, live audience question and answer sessions with presenter Mike Dietzel will identify applications for auto ID and inspection in real automated packaging processes.

Webinar presenter Mike Dietzel, Solutions Engineer on Microscan's industry-focused packaging team, has over 15 years experience developing solutions for packaging industries ranging from single laser barcode readers to multi-camera machine vision installations requiring unique lighting solutions.

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.
