Machine vision guide demystifies the future of automation

Machine vision is the new must-have technology for improving automated handling and processing but there are many misconceptions about what it can do, and how it is most effectively used. Now SICK has published an essential 'Introduction to Machine Vision' to provide engineers with insight into best practice applications.

"Machine vision is undoubtedly the future across all sectors of industry from automated packaging and food processing to warehouse and storage," says David Hannaby, SICK's machine vision specialist. "Yet some plant engineers are worried about committing to it, and others have unsubstantiated ideas about its capabilities and how far it can be integrated with a plant-wide Distributed Control System.

"There are many different types and capabilities of machine vision, from 3D laser imaging to simple photo-electric sensing," he continues. "It's important to be able to work out what you actually need before committing to spend. Additionally, there are lots of concepts with complicated initials being tossed about, and finding out what these really mean in terms of plant and processing requirements could save you a lot of misunderstandings."

In addition to the guide, SICK is offering free hands-on workshop sessions in its new Machine Vision test studio at its St Albans headquarters. The next workshop is scheduled for Wednesday 1 July.
