Machine vision software upgrade
Microscan's AutoVision 2.0 combines a simplified user interface with a powerful toolset for inspection, error proofing, and identification applications.
Microscan's AutoVision 2.0 maintains the same intuitive interface as the initial AutoVision release, but provides additional capabilities, including Verification and OCV (optical character verification) tools to validate print quality, a logic tool for building pass/fail criteria, and support for automated job changeover. AutoVision 2.0 also features Microscan Link for easy connectivity to PLCs and other industrial control systems.
AutoVision 2.0 supports Microscan’s Vision Mini and Vision Hawk Smart Cameras. With compact, fully integrated or C-Mount designs, the hardware line offers a range of solutions for easy integration into systems or existing production lines. The AutoVision suite of products provides an ideal solution for manufacturers who need to read barcodes, but want to add additional inspection capabilities to this process with a single hardware device. For more complex applications, AutoVision can be upgraded to Microscan’s Visionscape platform. The common software architecture across Microscan‘s hardware line enables portability from smart cameras to PC-based systems.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
