Natick, MA, July 6, 2004-Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ - CGNX), the world's leading supplier of machine vision systems and vision sensors, today announced that the company will host a new series of free machine vision seminars. The popular Understanding and Applying Machine Vision Sensors half-day 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, each seminar combines a machine vision basics tutorial with live demonstrations of the new industrial grade In-Sight 5000 Series vision sensors and ID readers. 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. In addition to walking away with an understanding of the fundamentals of implementing a successful vision solution, participants will receive free In-Sight Explorer trial software on a CD, which provides hands-on experience developing vision applications from start to finish. The CD also includes application examples, preliminary design considerations, a multi-media tutorial on building vision applications, lighting and optics videos, and a utility package that helps determine the field of view and resolution requirements of vision applications. The seminars will run from August through December in major cities across the U.S, Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. Readers can register for a seminar online at or by calling 1-800-677-2646.
