Microscan Hosts 3-Day Advanced Machine Vision Training Course

Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision, and lighting solutions, announces a three-day training course on advanced machine vision tools taught through hands-on exercises using Microscan’s advanced Visionscape® Machine Vision Software platform.

Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision, and lighting solutions, announces a three-day training course on advanced machine vision tools taught through hands-on exercises using Microscan's advanced Visionscape® Machine Vision Software platform. The course will be held in Microscan's Northeast Technology Center in Nashua, New Hampshire, from December 6-8, 2016 at 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM daily. Attendance is free and online registration is available for all users; recommended for those with intermediate to advanced experience with machine vision or programming.

While human inspectors on assembly lines visually inspect parts to judge the quality of workmanship, machine vision systems use cameras and image processing software to perform the same evaluations tirelessly and with greater precision. Machine vision inspection plays and important role in achieving 100% quality control in manufacturing, reducing costs, and ensuring a high level of customer satisfaction. Machine vision systems not only provide product tracking by way of barcodes and text to create traceable production histories, but can also guide products through automated operations, match products with labels and packaging, and compare product features to expected shapes, colors, fill levels, and sizes.
Part of Microscan's Certified Training program, this three-day machine vision training course offers an in-depth study of Microscan's complete machine vision tool library available in its advanced Visionscape® Machine Vision Software. Training will provide an overview of common machine vision applications with hands-on exercises setting up machine vision inspection tools and programming jobs to solve a range of tasks from basic barcode reading and text recognition to complex measurements, defect detection, and guidance. Attendees will learn to use tools like Decode, OCR, Count, Measure, OCV, Symbol Quality Verification, and more, as well as monitor results. Microscan machine vision technology experts will be available to offer one-on-one guidance on attendees' specific applications and automation projects and attendees are invited to bring their parts or barcodes to the event to discuss with the Microscan team.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
