October 10, 2016 – Microscan announces that it will showcase a number of machine vision innovations as well as vision-guided robotics and new products from booth #1705 at The ASSEMBLY SHOW at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois from October 25-27. Microscan, in collaboration with its distribution partner Axis New England, will demonstrate vision-guided robotics using the Universal Robots collaborative UR3 robotic arm and Microscan’s MicroHAWK imaging platform, an Ethernet smart camera, released this summer 2016.

The UR3 robot demo is set up to read a Data Matrix 2D code and inspect the presence and position of several components on a small engine, such as a choke lever and a fuel cap, to demonstrate how a single, flexible camera-based system can address applications from barcode reading to complex vision inspection. This demonstration will use machine vision tools such as Locate, Presence/Absence, Optical Character Recognition (OCR), and Count to inspect a small engine for the presence of critical components.

With the release of AutoVISION 4.0, Microscan’s high-performance MicroHAWK imaging platform is now configurable for machine vision applications, with a new line of MicroHAWK MV Smart Cameras released and available for order. In three models (MicroHAWK MV-20, MV-30, and MV-40), each MicroHAWK camera features selectable options for sensor (WVGA, SXGA, or QSXGA), lens (standard and high-density), and integrated lighting (red or white internal and add-on LEDs). AutoVISION 4.0 also supports the integrated liquid lens autofocus capability of the new MicroHAWK MV-30 and MV-40 models for inspecting parts at various positions, distances, and sizes. Industrial, high-speed EtherNet/IP and PROFINET communications protocols are supported in applications using the MV-40 model, and the communication capabilities of AutoVISION 4.0 allow MicroHAWK cameras to exchange data across different subnets, enabling users to connect to MicroHAWK cameras from anywhere in a factory or to connect a camera from a local factory to a satellite facility. AutoVISION 4.0 is supported on Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit) and Windows®10 operating systems.

Microscan’s LVS-7510 Print Quality Inspection System, which will also be on display, offers a label inspection solution that is custom-integrated with thermal printers. The LVS-7510 performs real-time label inspection for thermal labels including 1D/2D barcode verification, OCR, OCV, data serialization validation, blemish detection, and more.
