Richard Cheng, China Country Manager, accepted the award for Microscan during a ceremony at the 2013 Food Ingredients, Health Ingredients, and Natural Ingredients Asia-China Show (Fi Asia-China Hi Ni China 2013) held at the Shanghai New International Expo Center on June 26, 2013. The award acknowledges the contributions of companies who further the development of China’s food & beverage industry.

The awards aim to encourage, acknowledge, and reward companies that provide significant contributions in technological leadership, develop creative ways of meeting industry needs, and raise the standard of innovation in the industry.

Microscan’s AutoVISION is the easiest machine vision software available for basic to mid-range vision applications. AutoVISION 2.0 pairs flexible smart cameras with powerful inspection capabilities, including three new tools (Logic, OCV, and Symbol Quality Verification), support for automated job changeover, and easy connectivity to industrial controls with the new Microscan Link connectivity wizard. AutoVISION is scalable to the more advanced Visionscape® platform should application requirements expand over time, protecting users’ time, effort, and investment.

New features of Microscan’s new AutoVISION™ 2.0 machine vision software are especially beneficial to food and beverage packaging applications, where conformance to quality standards, accurate labeling, and process efficiency are top objectives. Included in AutoVISION’s intuitive drag-and-drop toolset are inspection tools such as Symbol Quality Verification and OCV, which enable inline verification of barcodes and text to meet both global quality standards and process-specific quality control requirements. AutoVISION’s OCR and OCV tools ensure that all packages are marked with accurate, legible batch/lot codes, date codes, and serial numbers to meet end customer specifications. Also, match string functionality through OCR and barcode reading ensure mix-up detection to prevent errors when matching labels to product, cups to lids, and similar operations.
