Smart camera brings robust vision inspection to packaging operations
December 21, 2011
Microscan (www.microscan.com), announces the Vision HAWK smart camera, built for high performance in rugged packaging and production environments. Manufacturers in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and consumer goods packaging industries are turning to machine vision to improve product quality and safety, ensure compliance with labeling regulations, and increase efficiency. The Vision HAWK provides a complete vision toolset in a compact, easy-to- integrate package. With powerful decode tools for reading barcodes and text codes (OCR), manufacturers can meet their traceability requirements while automating inspection tasks such as cap alignment, label positioning, fill level verification and more.
Fully integrated lens and lighting, industrial IP65/67 housing, and Ethernet connectivity make the Vision HAWK easy to incorporate into production operations. It features easy set-up and operation with Microscan’s intuitive AutoVISION™ software interface, and can be scaled to the more advanced Visionscape platform for complex configurations. The Vision HAWK also includes liquid lens autofocus technology, which can help to reduce downtime by eliminating the need to manually adjust the camera during line changeovers.
