Matrox Imaging to Demonstrate New Machine Vision Hardware and Software at Automate 2013

Montreal, Canada - At Automate 2013 (January 21-24, Chicago, IL), Matrox Imaging will demonstrate new hardware and software for industrial imaging and machine vision, including Matrox Design Assistant 3.0, the latest release of its flowchart-based integrated development environment (IDE) for the Matrox Iris GT smart camera line.


Visit the Matrox Imaging booth (McCormick Place North, #933) and see:

*Multiple Matrox Iris GT smart cameras being monitored and controlled remotely from a single HMI application, which is included with Matrox Design Assistant smart camera software. Design Assistant 3.0 makes it even faster and easier for users to create their application's flowchart and HMI.

*High-speed surface inspection using a 16k-pixel, 100 kHz line rate, 4 links, CoaXPress line-scan camera interfaced to a Matrox Radient eV-CXP frame grabber board in a Matrox Supersight imaging computer. The Supersight supports multiple multi-core CPU / GPU-based compute nodes running the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL).

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.
