In-Sight Explorer 4.5 from Cognex Corp., Natick, MA, works with the company's In-Sight machine vision systems to provide advanced inspection tools. The new Flexible Flaw Detection tool works for both color and grayscale applications and inspects for boundary and surface detects; it can also be used for print inspections. You can also select accuracy vs. speed requirements and ignore defects during system run time. The EasyBuilder Bead Finder and Bead Tracker find positional defects and width-based defects and gaps as well as providing bead data needed for process control. ReadIDMax provides the ability to read up to 128 1-D and 2-D matrix barcodes at one time regardless of the position of the code in the field-of view and lets you simultaneously read multiple codes and inspect parts.
