MVTec Releases HALCON 11.0.2

MVTec Software GmbH has launched the new maintenance release 11.0.2 of its machine vision standard software HALCON 11. This release fixes bugs and offers improved features to the machine vision market.

HALCON 11.0.2 offers improved functionality for identification, i.e., for

the reading of data codes and bar codes. The data code reader can now
optionally enforce the existence of a quiet zone of detected symbols and for
ECC 200 codes, it is up to 200% faster and more robust in certain cases.
Furthermore, the error correction for PDF417 codes now runs even more
robust. The bar code reader now supports the verification of an optional
check character without stripping it from the bar code data.

The usability of HALCON has been improved in various ways: HALCON has been
extended with new procedures to make it easier to calculate groups of
features with given properties for classification as well as with procedures
to create 2D plots to visualize data series. One of HALCONs most important
unique selling propositions is HALCONs integrated development environment,
HDevelop. With the new HALCON 11.0.2 maintenance release, HDevelop has been
extended with the option to load the recent program file automatically
during startup and with the ability to copy the referred local procedures
together with the calling program lines between different instances of
HDevelop. Furthermore, the HDevelop example programs that show the usage of
the data code reader have been revised and reorganized.

Registered HALCON customers can download the new release for free. More

New KUKA Robot: KR 3 AGILUS Maximum performance in minimum space

Great advances often start with small steps - in manufacturing cells measuring only 600 × 600 mm. Here, the KR 3 AGILUS is in its element. Particularly in the case of small parts and products which must be produced in a minimum of space. KUKA expertise, concentrated into the smallest of spaces, is setting new standards for the 3-kg class. The lightweight robot masters various tasks with agility, dynamism and maximum precision, leading to high flexibility in production - even when it comes to extremely narrow spaces.
