ALPHEN A/D RIJN, The Netherlands, 2 October 2013 - Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting, will demonstrate its industrial machine vision and auto ID solutions for electronics manufacturing and automation at the VDMA Machine Vision Pavilion booth # 7A- 720 at the SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, 26 - 28 November.


Industry leaders within electronics and semiconductor manufacturing apply Microscan's barcode and machine vision technology to enable lean manufacturing, assure quality, and optimize efficient use of resources. Microscan's products are commonly used throughout automated electronics assemblies to monitor, track, and trace critical data. Manufacturers can validate or verify the quality of a direct part mark code, or use machine vision to inspect that all components are complete and mounted correctly.

At the show, Microscan will demonstrate its easy-to-use machine vision product suite, including AutoVISION machine vision software, now available with a German user interface, along with support for Profinet I/O industrial networks, together with the compact Vision MINI and Vision HAWK smart cameras. In addition, visitors to Microscan's booth can try out the latest additions to Microscan's auto ID portfolio, for example the new HS-51 and HS-51X barcode scanners.

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.
