Microscan Wins Ringier Technology Innovation Awards 2011 - Packaging Industry

POSTED 07/29/2011

Microscan announces that it has been awarded Ringier Technology Innovation Awards 2011 in the Packaging Industry category for its two machine vision products: Vision MINI and Vision HAWK. The awards were presented to Mr. Chen Yiwu, General Manager of Microscan China, during a July 14, 2011 ceremony that took place at ProPack China. Hosted by one of the leading companies in industrial information, Ringier Industrial Media Co., Ltd., Ringier Technology Innovation Awards recognize those who have made the most significant contributions to the advancement of different industries through innovative products and technology, and are the most international and professional industrial technology innovation awards in China.

The Vision MINI smart camera is the world's smallest fully integrated vision system. It is designed specifically for reliable vision performance in embedded identification and inspection applications. With the Vision MINI, OEM design engineers can quickly implement robust inspection, color matching, symbol decoding, OCR and more in a single compact vision solution. The Vision MINI delivers both high performance and reliability, as well as the assurance of long-term availability and support. This is essential for OEMs, who require uninterrupted availability throughout the lifecycle of their products, and enables them to focus on new development instead of shutdown.

The Vision HAWK is a flexible industrial smart camera that delivers powerful vision capabilities in a compact, easy-to-use package. Developed for vision users of all experience levels in a broad range of applications, the Vision HAWK features an intuitive vision interface, integrated lighting, high-resolution optical zoom and plug-and-play connectivity. With the Vision HAWK, both integrators and end-users have a scalable, fully integrated vision solution to confidently solve any inspection, verification or auto ID application.

Mr. Chen Yiwu said in his speech during the ceremony: "Microscan is technology leading company that focuses on product innovation and perfection. We revolutionized the auto ID industry in the early 1980s with the invention of the first laser-diode barcode scanner and the 2D Data Matrix. What makes our employees most proud is that we have been playing a leading role in the innovation of new technology and products, and have been followed but never surpassed by other competitors. Microscan launched Vision MINI and Vision HAWK this year with a view to providing powerful and reliable instruments with high performance in inspection and identification while simultaneously simplifying the application of machine vision in design and configuration."
