Guide to Unlocking Your Automation Potential

Machine vision is an enabling technology in industrial automation that can perceive the environment and help solve real-world problems, transforming the physical world into digital data. It consists of integrating hardware and software products to perform automated visual inspection, guidance or optimization tasks. Typical applications include industrial automation, automated guided vehicles, or even medical imaging. Read more…

2D or 3D Machine Vision?

Manufacturers can choose either 3D or 2D for their machine vision solution. While 2D machine vision is well known for applications like barcode reading, manufacturers have begun to utilize 3D machine vision to deliver accurate dimensional data, taking application capabilities to a new strategic level.
