RENTON, WA, April 23, 2014 - Microscan announces a series of live New Technology Workshops to introduce the latest easy-to-use machine vision and barcode reading solutions. This global training program kicks off on May 1, 2014 at the Microscan Northeast Technology Center in Nashua, NH. Attendance is free and online registration is now available for beginner users and beyond.


A series of 14 events throughout the Americas, Asia, and Europe are now scheduled with additional workshops added weekly. Attendees are invited to meet and collaborate with Microscan experts to learn how new automation technology can benefit their operations with faster production speeds, fewer errors, and less waste - using the simplest barcode and inspection technology on the market. Barcode reading solutions like the HS-51X wireless handheld imager, and the award-winning and user-friendly AutoVISION machine vision suite, including the new CloudLink mobile monitoring interface and Vision MINI Xi miniature industrial smart camera, will be showcased with hands-on product demonstrations and guided technology labs. Machine vision and auto ID technology experts will also be available for one-on-one guidance on attendees' specific applications and automation projects. Attendees are invited to bring their parts and codes to the events to discuss live with the Microscan team. Special discounts and drawings are open to all participants as a part of the training program.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
