Machine vision

Cognex Corp. offers free seminars for better use of machine vision sensors and systems. Company says it’s the world’s leader in the machine vision industry, having shipped more than 300,000 machine vision systems, representing over $2 billion in cumulative revenue, since the company's founding in 1981.

Free, half-day machine-vision seminars for manufacturing professionals aim to show how machine vision can be applied to improve quality and reduce costs. Cognex Corp. is offering four seminar tracks for various applications and experience levels.

Four tracks are:

  • Machine Vision Seminars provide a general introduction and show how companies use vision sensors, ID readers, and presence sensors to improve quality and boost productivity;

  • Direct Part Mark Identification Seminars examine the most important factors to consider when implementing DPM ID for part traceability;

  • Food and Beverage Package Inspection Seminars focus on the application of machine vision to ensure package integrity, label accuracy, and product traceability; and

  • Automotive Error-Proofing Seminars deal with complex and demanding automotive industry requirements for error proofing, robot guidance, and quality assurance.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a sample to discuss an application with an engineer.

Seminars run from August through December 2006, in major cities in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. Click here to learn more.
