Microscan Presents Webinar on ID and Inspection in Packaging

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 Can to Carton" - an exploration of the role of barcode (or auto ID) and machine vision technology in food and beverage packaging.

RENTON, WA, November 6, 2012 - 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 Can to Carton" - an exploration of the role of barcode (or auto ID) and machine vision technology in food and beverage packaging. The presentation and live question and answer session are free to attend, and will take place during two live web broadcasts: November 14 at 10 A.M. PST (Seattle) / 1 P.M. EST (Boston) and November 15 at 4 P.M. CET (Amsterdam) / 10 A.M. EST (Boston).


Packaging operations are becoming more sophisticated. Today's automated, intelligent processes rely on the transfer of data from the factory floor to centralized systems that help manufacturers achieve a number of objectives, from improving product quality, to ensuring regulatory compliance, to achieving supply chain visibility. In this webinar, follow a can of green beans from seamer to pallet on its journey through an automated packaging process. The webinar tours a food and beverage packaging line, stopping at key inspection points to observe how automation solutions like machine vision and barcode technologies help manufacturers meet important quality requirements while improving overall production efficiency. After the presentation, live audience question and answer sessions with presenter Mike Dietzel will identify applications for auto ID and inspection in real automated packaging processes.

Webinar presenter Mike Dietzel, Solutions Engineer on Microscan's industry-focused packaging team, has over 15 years experience developing solutions for packaging industries ranging from single laser barcode readers to multi-camera machine vision installations requiring unique lighting solutions.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
