From the floor of Automate 2015 in Chicago, Microscan Machine Vision Promoter Dr. Jonathan Ludlow presents a demo from Microscan and our partner Cross Company utilizing a UR5 robotic arm integrated with a Microscan Vision HAWK Smart Camera. This demo illustrates flexible in-line inspection, where parts and assembly can be quality checked from multiple angles during production with the help of robotics. The Vision HAWK reads barcodes on multiple parts to ensure the correct components are installed and checks for the presence and quality of a gas cap on this small motor.

Gigabit Ethernet allows for high-speed data transfers at one gigabit per second. Microscan's Visionscape® GigE Camera is ideal for machine vision inspection and barcode reading applications requiring image processing and communication at rates to match the speeds of production. In this video, the GigE Camera and a NERLITE® Smart Series DOAL® 100 light are used to read CIJ (Continuous Ink Jet) printed Data Matrix symbols from the bottom of vegetable cans at 800 cans per minute, tracking each item for final packaging.

I-PAK® Multi-Camera Machine Vision Software has the capability of setting up, monitoring, and controlling inspection tasks on up to four different smart cameras from a single user interface. In this demo, I-PAK uses a Vision HAWK Smart Camera with color inspection capability to detect the color of pills within a blister pack. If an incorrect color is detected (green), the software returns a failed result and the pack of pills can be rejected.

I-PAK® Multi-Camera Machine Vision Software has the capability of setting up, monitoring, and controlling inspection tasks on up to four different smart cameras from a single user interface. In this demo, I-PAK uses a Vision HAWK C-Mount Smart Camera mounted to a NERLITE® Smart Series Pharmalite to clearly read the codes printed to the bottom of a box. If these lot and date codes do not match expected values programmed in the I-PAK interface, the software returns a failed result and the package can be rejected.

Part of the AutoVISION family of machine vision products, the Vision MINI Xi Smart Camera is the smallest vision system in the world featuring embedded industrial Ethernet. In this demonstration, the Vision MINI Xi, together with AutoVISION Machine Vision Software, decode a barcode and read text on the end of a package. This identifying data is then sent to a PLC system over EtherNet/IP for high-speed data transfer.

Logging and tracking product data is an important step for both recording production history and enabling automated processes further down the supply chain. In this video, a Microscan Vision HAWK Smart Camera uses AutoVISION Machine Vision Software to read the text on the top of lipstick tubes, while an MS-3 Laser Barcode Scanner decodes barcodes from the sides of the tubes as they pass by at high speeds. Incorrect or unexpected codes could be rejected during this process, and the data that is acquired from the codes can tell systems down the line where products should be sent for batching and distribution. Plus, knowing exactly which product was scanned where can help the manufacturer pinpoint errors to specific areas of production by tracing a single code through historic scan logs.

Legible, accurate barcodes and text have never been more important than they are today, where automated supply chains depend on data accuracy to ensure the reliable performance of global operations. Microscan offers several complete solutions for barcode verification to global standards such as those proposed by ISO and AIM organizations. In this video, the Large Linear Verification Kit, featuring smart camera, lighting, and Microscan's VMI (Verification Monitoring Interface) Software, grade 1D (linear) barcodes on cardboard to ISO 15416 quality parameters to ensure consistent readability throughout the supply chain.
