RENTON, WA, November 25, 2013 - 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 Circuit to Smart Phone" - an exploration of the role of auto ID (barcode) and machine vision technology in consumer electronics manufacturing. The presentation and audience question-and-answer session are free to attend and will take place during two live web sessions: December 4 at 10 A.M. PST (Seattle) / 1 P.M. EST (Boston) and December 5 at 9 A.M. EST (Boston) / 3 P.M. CET (Amsterdam).


In the highly competitive consumer electronics market, exceptional product quality and high production speeds are critical to a manufacturer's success. Characteristically small and densely complex parts pose daunting challenges for electronics manufacturers aiming to meet these goals and avoid costly consequences like scrap, rework, or even recalls. Today's automation solutions, however, are more capable than ever of achieving accuracy through high-performance identification and inspection technology that is increasingly intuitive, compact, and cost-effective. In this webinar, take a close look at the manufacturing process of a smart phone and see how barcode readers and machine vision equipment are helping some of today's electronics companies achieve component traceability, detect defects, and ensure accurate assembly. Join Microscan Senior Solutions Engineer, Steve King, as he presents the common uses and benefits of automation technology in consumer electronics manufacturing.

Webinar presenter Steve King, Senior Solutions Engineer on Microscan's industry-focused Electronics team, has been creating automation solutions for the semiconductor, electronics, automotive, and pharmaceutical industries for over 27 years. He is an AIA Certified Vision Professional (Advanced) and holds a BSME and MS in Engineering Design from Tufts University.

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.
