JMP Engineering becomes Cognex Vision integrator

LONDON, ON, June 23, 2006 – JMP Engineering announced today that it has achieved recognition as an authorized Cognex Vision Integrator (CVI).

JMP engineers are using machine vision as a reliable tool to solve a wide array of challenges facing manufacturers today. In its simplest form, a vision system can be used to positively identify a product or differentiate between two or more similar products. In more advanced applications, vision systems can be the basis of flexible and re-programmable Poke Yoke systems that check the presence and/or dimensions of components, features, and holes in products. Finally, machine vision can be employed in conjunction with robotic systems to solve even more advance manufacturing challenges such as picking parts out of a jumbled bin or retrieving components from a non-fixtured conveyance system.

“With higher demands for fewer defects, increased traceability and total flexibility, machine vision is a powerful tool to help solve many challenging problems in today’s manufacturing environment,” said Scott Shawyer, JMP President and Chief Executive Officer. “JMP is a leader in automation and information systems so it was important to us that we partner with Cognex, the world leader in vision technology.”
