Lumber Focused Cognex In-Sight Explorer Training

November 6, 2017

Lumber Applications Email imageDecember 4 – 7, 2017

This course is will cover the Cognex In-Sight Explorer software as well as the hardware that is needed to set up a successful machine vision project. The course will begin by covering the basics which gives first time users a broad understanding of In-Sight vision systems and how to set up simple programs. The second portion of the training will go into advanced material that will allow the student to tackle nearly any vision application. During each topic we will explore how it relates to the lumber industry and common applications. Hands on labs will take discussed concepts and implement them in a simulated lumber mill.

Cognex DataMan 262 Ultra High Definition Barcode Reader

June 13, 2017

High performance barcode reader for direct part mark (DPM) microcodes

Daman 262 Ultra High ResThe DataMan 262 Ultra High Definition barcode readers were designed to read DPM microcodes that are marked directly on any surface of components today. The DataMan 262 Ultra High Definition barcode reader is small in size while delivering the best performance on DPM microcodes, running Cognex’s industry best algorithms.

Setup is a snap as the reader, the optics and the lighting are contained in one small package. Additionally, the size of the reader allows for installation into the small spaces on today’s marking and assembly machines. All of this adds up to the best ID reader and easiest to deploy to read the most challenging microcodes.

Cognex In-Sight Laser Profiler

April 11, 2017

In-Sight Laser Profiler and VC200The In-Sight™ laser profiler is a measurement system used to verify that a part’s dimensions meet specifications.  The In-Sight laser profiler is configured using the In-Sight EasyBuilder user interface.  This intuitive, easy-to-use software makes it simple for manufacturing and quality engineers to develop, deploy and support high accuracy measurements on the factory floor.

  1. Accurately acquire profiles
  2. Easily extract features and construct reference points
  3. Perform correct and repeatable measurements

The In-Sight laser profiler generates an accurate 2D profile of an object along a laser line.  The 2D profile provides precise geometric information that can be sued to verify that an object is defect-free and meets specifications.  The In-Sight laser profiler is easy to use and factory calibrated to ensure accurate and repeatable measurement results.
