Cognex Corporation is the world’s leading provider of vision systems, vision software, vision sensors and industrial ID readers used in manufacturing automation. Cognex vision helps companies improve product quality, eliminate production errors, lower manufacturing costs, and exceed consumer expectations for high quality products at an affordable price.
Cognex ViDi is the first deep learning-based software designed to solve these complicated applications for factory automation. Deep learning technology uses neural networks which mimic human intelligence to distinguish anomalies, parts, and characters while tolerating natural variations in complex patterns. Deep learning offers an advantage over traditional machine vision approaches, which struggle to appreciate variability and deviation between very visually similar parts.
Cognex In-Sight® vision systems are unmatched in their ability to inspect, identify and guide parts. These self-contained, industrial-grade vision systems combine a library of advanced vision tools with high-speed image acquisition and processing.
In-Sight® 2000 series vision sensors combine the power of an In-Sight vision system with the simplicity and affordability of a vision sensor. Ideal for solving error-proofing applications.
The compact size of the Cognex In-Sight 2000 Mini expands the number of potential application for vision sensors and allows users to deploy vision sensors into more areas of their operation. In-Sight 2000 Mini models are 68% smaller by volume than standard In-Sight 2000 vision sensors, so they can fit into tight spaces. In-Sight 2000 Mini models also come standard with a liquid lens autofocus module, enabling faster job changeovers and the ability to change focus when the sensor is mounted in inaccessible places. Key features include:
Cognex DataMan fixed-mount barcode readers offer unmatched 1D and 2D code reading performance. Advanced technology, processing power, modularity, and ease of use make DataMan barcode readers the ideal solution for challenging manufacturing and logistics applications.
DataMan handheld barcode readers provide best-in-class performance for direct part mark (DPM) and 1D and 2D label-based code applications. Designed with the latest patented technology, rugged housing, and modular communication options, Cognex handheld barcode readers are ideal for the harshest manufacturing and logistics environments.
Cognex barcode verification technology ensures the readability and compliance of 1D and 2D barcodes to industry standardization guidelines. Today most companies spot check codes one at a time using an offline, operator-based verifier which can be slow and cumbersome.
Cognex’s 3D-A5000 series is an area scan 3D camera designed to capture high-resolution 3D images. It features 3D LightBurst technology which rapidly acquires images to maximize throughput. High-resolution 3D images combined with industry-leading Cognex 3D vision tools enable reliable and accurate solutions to applications such as assembly verification, in-line measurement, and robotic guidance.
DSMax is the fastest and highest definition laser line 3D displacement sensor on the market for acquiring images and inspecting products in 3D. It is the only sensor that offers:
These features make it the ideal solution for measuring and inspecting very small parts, such as electronic components, which can contain highly reflective or dark features.
Cognex 3D displacement sensors optimize product quality by providing three-dimensional inspection of your products.
