Machine Vision Technology

Machine vision uses image capture and analysis to automate tasks such as inspection, gauging, and counting, in addition to reading barcodes and optical characters (OCR). While human inspectors can visually inspect parts to judge the quality of workmanship, machine vision systems use advanced hardware and software components to perform these functions at higher speeds, reliably, and with greater precision.

Microscan holds one of the world’s most robust patent portfolios for machine vision technology, including hardware design, software algorithms and machine vision lighting. This comprehensive product line makes Microscan uniquely positioned to provide complete vision solutions to a broad range of user levels and applications.
