Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions will demonstrate its suite of products for track, trace and control at its booth # A84 in Hall 11 at the IPACK-IMA trade show in Milan, 28 February - 3 March 2012.


For manufacturers in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and consumer goods packaging industries, safety and packaged product verification can be an essential requirement. Microscan's barcode and machine vision technology is used to monitor, track, and trace critical data. On packaging lines, Microscan products track production data, guide the movement of goods, ensure label print quality, guarantee correct label application, and enable final lot tracking. Microscan's readers presented at the show offer both linear and 2D Data Matrix code reading and high read rates and their imagers can provide symbol quality reporting and verification.

At the booth, visitors can also view live demonstrations of Microscan's machine vision technology, such as the AutoVISION™ suite, which consists of Microscan's AutoVISION machine vision software, and the Vision MINI and Vision HAWK smart cameras. This solution enables simplified machine vision, and allows users with little to no experience in vision technology to set up and implement machine vision applications. The company's latest I-PAK packaging inspection system is an all-in-one vision solution designed specifically to meet the stringent requirements of the pharmaceutical industry.

The company will also present the new C-Mount lens configuration for the popular QX HAWK imager and the Vision HAWK smart camera. With industrial IP65/67 housing (with lens cover), compact size, flexible configurations and built-in Ethernet connectivity, the QX HAWK and Vision HAWK are easy to incorporate into any production environment. The Vision HAWK vision system features easy set-up and operation with Microscan's intuitive AutoVISION software interface, including powerful decode tools for reading barcodes and text (OCR), and inspection tools for cap alignment, label positioning, fill level verification, and more.

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.
