Omron Microscan Debuts Duo of Best-In-Class Barcode Readers

Industry-leading barcode reading and machine vision manufacturer Omron Microscan introduces two new industrial code readers: the HS-360X, an ultra-rugged DPM handheld fit for automotive and heavy industrial applications, and the MicroHAWK ID-45, a perfect match for DPM applications in electronics and medical device manufacturing.

Renton, WA, February 13, 2018 - Two brand-new, best-in-class barcode readers from Omron Microscan are hitting the market this month. The industry-leading manufacturer of industrial code readers and machine vision technology will host a live webinar on February 22nd to outline the benefits and key features of the HS-360X, an ultra-rugged DPM handheld, and the MicroHAWK ID-45, a new addition to the MicroHAWK family that boasts new and improved lighting configurations.

Both readers are optimized to capture the most challenging Direct Part Marks (DPMs) on all sorts of surfaces. Curved, shiny and irregular substrates pose zero problems for the advanced X-Mode decoding algorithms inside the HS-360X and the MicroHAWK ID-45. Decoding speed is rapid-fire for dot-peened, laser-etched and ink-jetted codes regardless of size, density or contrast.
Perfect for DPM applications in automotive and heavy industry, the HS-360X demonstrates exceptional durability and shock resistance. Waterproof, dust-proof and capable of withstanding multiple drops to concrete, its built to last long in the harshest work environments. A 3100-mAh lithium ion battery coupled with the industrys only on-board battery gauge supports extreme efficiency with 56% more scans per charge vs. competing handhelds. Operators can also enjoy increased flexibility and easy setup through WebLinkPC.
WebLink is also the force behind the ID-45s intuitive plug-and-play setup. The reader integrates seamlessly into production lines for electronics, medical device manufacturing and similar industries, while its extensive array of 24 LEDs makes it brighter than previous generations of MicroHAWK. TRUE Autofocus and X-Mode technology allow it to decode poorly printed and damaged codes with ease in all sorts of settings, including metal cavities.
Manufacturing professionals interested in learning more about these exciting new devices can register for Omron Microscans upcoming webinar on February 22nd here.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
