MVTec Releases HALCON 11.0.2

MVTec Software GmbH has launched the new maintenance release 11.0.2 of its machine vision standard software HALCON 11. This release fixes bugs and offers improved features to the machine vision market.

HALCON 11.0.2 offers improved functionality for identification, i.e., for

the reading of data codes and bar codes. The data code reader can now
optionally enforce the existence of a quiet zone of detected symbols and for
ECC 200 codes, it is up to 200% faster and more robust in certain cases.
Furthermore, the error correction for PDF417 codes now runs even more
robust. The bar code reader now supports the verification of an optional
check character without stripping it from the bar code data.

The usability of HALCON has been improved in various ways: HALCON has been
extended with new procedures to make it easier to calculate groups of
features with given properties for classification as well as with procedures
to create 2D plots to visualize data series. One of HALCONs most important
unique selling propositions is HALCONs integrated development environment,
HDevelop. With the new HALCON 11.0.2 maintenance release, HDevelop has been
extended with the option to load the recent program file automatically
during startup and with the ability to copy the referred local procedures
together with the calling program lines between different instances of
HDevelop. Furthermore, the HDevelop example programs that show the usage of
the data code reader have been revised and reorganized.

Registered HALCON customers can download the new release for free. More

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
