This video demonstrates the Verification Monitoring Interface (VMI) software plug-in for Microscan's AutoVISION Machine Vision Software. This custom monitoring tool displays data and images specific to barcode quality verification, including grading to ISO parameters and graphing barcode quality trends over time. Manufacturers can use this live data to set alarms or trigger actions based on low barcode quality, which may indicate degradation of the printing or marking system.
Old DPMs never die, nor do they fade away. At least they’re not supposed to meet their demise before the part carrying them goes out of service. One of the major challenges of using DPMs (short for “direct part marks”) to trace products and parts lies in the need for permanence. If a part is to be incorporated into a brand-new Boeing 737 and the aircraft is expected to stay in service for several decades, then the DPM on that part needs to last several decades as well. This is known as “cradle-to-grave traceability” – a fundamental requirement for the sake of quality control and public safety.
In the highly competitive market of manufacturing, increasing pressures to shrink margins, reduce costs and improve product quality has manufacturers looking for solutions. This presentation will discuss 3 practical ways how IIoT can create value for your company and the technology solutions available to support your IIoT projects.
Many are unaware of the extent to which the theoretical field of computer vision has produced tangible benefits for manufacturing.
The ability to automatically extract information from digital images opens many doors for manufacturers striving to cut costs, improve quality and streamline their processes overall. The primary uses of machine vision are inspection, gauging, and robot guidance. This white paper by Omron Microscan explores machine vision’s fundamental functions, benefits for industrial automation and real-world applications.
