Natick, MA, June 23, 2003—Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ - CGNX), the world's leading supplier of machine vision systems, today announced that the company will add 100 cities to its schedule of popular machine vision seminars, extending them through November. These half-day Understanding and Applying Machine Vision Sensors events show how vision sensors can perform automated inspection tasks in the automotive, medical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, consumer products, and electronics industries. Designed as an introduction for factory automation professionals responsible for production efficiency and product quality, the seminars combine a machine vision basics tutorial with live vision sensor demonstrations. The tutorial covers how vision sensors work in manufacturing applications to accurately gauge, guide, identify and inspect products in order to reduce scrap costs, inventory problems, and achieve a high level of product quality. The demonstrations are designed to show engineers and mangers how quick and easy it is to build applications.
