Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision, and lighting solutions, announces that it will showcase its latest identification and inspection solutions for product traceability and quality compliance in Booth #S-7455 at Pack Expo 2013.

RENTON, WA, August 28, 2013 - Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision, and lighting solutions, announces that it will showcase its latest identification and inspection solutions for product traceability and quality compliance in Booth #S-7455 at Pack Expo 2013, taking place in the Las Vegas Convention Center, September 23-25. The company will demonstrate how its barcode readers and smart cameras can be incorporated into packaging lines and machinery to monitor, track, and record critical data on products, labels, and secondary packaging.


Manufacturers need to detect mislabeled products, mismatched packaging containers, poorly printed text, and unreadable barcodes early in the process, allowing for corrective action before products make it into the supply chain. Microscan's AutoVISION™ machine vision will highlighted during in-booth product demonstrations. The product line, which includes the Vision MINI and Vision HAWK smart cameras along with the AutoVISION™ machine vision software interface, was developed to simplify the setup and deployment of machine vision applications. The intuitive software incorporates high-performance features such as barcode quality verification; decode tools for 1D and 2D barcodes; OCR and OCV; automated job changeover; and Microscan Link for one-click connectivity to PLCs and other control systems.

Also on display at Pack Expo will be Microscan's broad range of advanced data collection products including laser barcode scanners, 2D imagers, 1D/2D scan engines, handheld readers, and vision smart cameras excelling in applications from basic barcode reading to complex machine vision inspection, identification and measurement. With more than 30 years of proven performance, Microscan remains committed to continuous innovation and development to help manufacturers ensure the quality of packaging while at the same time maximizing production flow.

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.
