Microscan to Host Webinar on Ensur ing Barcode Readability with Machine Vision Verification

Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions, will host a webinar on Barcode Verification with Machine Vision at 10 A.M PDT / 1 P.M. EDT on April 25, 2013, with another session held earlier at 11 A.M. CEST (Amsterdam).

RENTON, WA, April 22, 2013 - Microscan, a global technology leaderin barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions, will host a webinar on Barcode Verification with Machine Vision at 10 A.M PDT / 1 P.M. EDT on April 25, 2013, with another session held earlier at 11 A.M. CEST (Amsterdam). The presentation and live question and answer session are free to attend.


Webinar presenter Nico Hooiveld, Microscan's Machine Vision Product Manager, explains: "Unreadable barcodes can cause disruptions to an automated process, and may require re-labeling, re-scanning, or even manual entry of critical information by a human operator. Once outside of the factory, illegible barcodes can lead to traceability problems in the supply chain, causing rejected product shipments and unhappy customers. Verification ensures that no product will leave the factory without a readable code."

During the webinar, Hooiveld will cover the impact that quality barcodes have on a company's automated processes and demonstrate how machine vision systems can be employed to ensure reliable code legibility. He will also discuss requirements for setting up a barcode verification system and tools that can be used to evaluate a barcode's quality against published standards such as ISO 15415, ISO 15416, and AIM DPM.

Microscan recently added several new tools to its AutoVISION™ machine vision software, including a 1D and 2D barcode verification tool to ensure consistent code quality in automated processes and throughout the supply chain. The company's AutoVISION™ product line, which also includes compact smart cameras in a variety of models, was developed to make machine vision accessible to more users, enabling quick and easy implementation of machine vision inspection and identification with minimal time, effort, and training.
