Machine vision uses image capture and analysis to automate tasks such as inspection, gauging, and counting, in addition to reading barcodes and optical characters (OCR). While human inspectors can visually inspect parts to judge the quality of workmanship, machine vision systems use advanced hardware and software components to perform these functions at higher speeds, reliably, and with greater precision.
1D barcodes and 2D codes such as Data Matrix are used to track and identify parts, automating production operations and saving time, money, and manpower for manufacturers throughout industry. Barcode technology facilitates critical production level applications like quality control, work-in-process (WIP) monitoring, sortation, and lot tracking. Fast, accurate data collection is imperative for keeping production lines moving efficiently in today’s manufacturing environments.
