HAWK-MV4000Omron Microscan, your trusted partner in automation and machine vision solutions, will demonstrate the breadth and customizability of its machine vision portfolio with applications ranging from miniature, embedded cameras for the life sciences to rugged and powerful technology ideal for the automotive industry.

RENTON, WA – The quest for a complete vision portfolio is never-ending, so it’s perfect for people who enjoy a good challenge. Known for its ever-expanding and highly customizable vision solutions, industry-leading barcode reading and vision supplier Omron Microscan takes this challenge seriously. Omron’s recent acquisition of Microscan Systems, Inc., brought a wealth of new expertise into an already remarkable portfolio, and the resulting products and solutions will be on display at this year’s Vision Show in Boston.

Organized by the Association for Advancing Automation (A3), this three-day event is a destination for vision experts, suppliers and other professionals interested in keeping up with the industry’s latest innovations. Omron Microscan offers advanced machine vision solutions that are tailored to the needs of a wide variety of industrial applications.

An impressive lineup of products, including the HAWK MV-4000 smart camera, MicroHAWK readers and the PanelScan traceability system, will be included in a single demo to highlight the interaction of vision technologies on the production line. The HAWK MV-4000 is a high-performance smart camera that boasts four times the processing power and six times the frame rate of the previous generation, making it a powerful option for all automation needs. PanelScan is optimized specifically for capturing barcode data on multi-array printed circuit boards (PCBs). For embedded applications, the MicroHAWK family offers both code reading and machine vision capability in tiny packages.

Manufacturers seeking to incorporate machine vision into their automation solutions should be sure to check out Omron Microscan’s product demonstrations at the Hynes Convention Center, Booth #1127, from April 10-12. To schedule a meeting or individual demonstration, please click here.
