Omron Microscan to Showcase Wide-Ranging Solutions Portfolio at the Vision Show

Omron Microscan, your trusted partner in automation and machine vision solutions, will demonstrate the breadth and customizability of its machine vision portfolio with applications ranging from miniature, embedded cameras for the life sciences to rugged and powerful technology ideal for the automotive industry.

RENTON, WA, March 20, 2018 - The quest for a complete vision portfolio is never-ending, so it's perfect for people who enjoy a good challenge. Known for its ever-expanding and highly customizable vision solutions, industry-leading barcode reading and vision supplier Omron Microscan takes this challenge seriously. Omron's recent acquisition of Microscan Systems, Inc., brought a wealth of new expertise into an already remarkable portfolio, and the resulting products and solutions will be on display at this year's Vision Show in Boston.

Organized by the Association for Advancing Automation (A3), this three-day event is a destination for vision experts, suppliers and other professionals interested in keeping up with the industry's latest innovations. Omron Microscan offers advanced machine vision solutions that are tailored to the needs of a wide variety of industrial applications.
An impressive lineup of products, including the HAWK MV-4000 smart camera, MicroHAWK readers and the PanelScan traceability system, will be included in a single demo to highlight the interaction of vision technologies on the production line. The HAWK MV-4000 is a high-performance smart camera that boasts four times the processing power and six times the frame rate of the previous generation, making it a powerful option for all automation needs. PanelScan is optimized specifically for capturing barcode data on multi-array printed circuit boards (PCBs). For embedded applications, the MicroHAWK family offers both code reading and machine vision capability in tiny packages.
Manufacturers seeking to incorporate machine vision into their automation solutions should be sure to check out Omron Microscan's product demonstrations at the Hynes Convention Center, Booth #1127, from April 10-12. To schedule a meeting or individual demonstration, please click here.
Steve King, the product manager for the company's machine vision products, will be presenting twice during the event, first to discuss illumination techniques and subsequently to offer tips on achieving 100% product traceability using machine vision code reading.

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.
