Microscan’s Vision HAWK reads text and barcodes, and performs inspections such as cap alignment and fill level verification.

Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions, will present the new Vision HAWK machine vision system to the packaging industry at Pack Expo 2011, which takes place September 26-28, 2011 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. The fully-integrated smart camera, built for high performance in rugged production environments, will be demonstrated at the company’s booth, #6144.

With a complete vision toolset that includes powerful decode tools for reading barcodes and text codes (OCR), the Vision HAWK enables manufacturers to meet their traceability requirements and automate inspection tasks such as cap alignment, label positioning, fill level verification, and more.

The Vision HAWK features easy set-up and operation with Microscan’s intuitive AutoVISION software interface, and can be scaled to the more advanced Visionscape interface for complex configurations. Liquid lens autofocus technology reduces downtime by eliminating the need to manually adjust the camera during line changeovers. With fully integrated lens and lighting, industrial IP65/67 housing, and Ethernet connectivity, the Vision HAWK is easily integrated into production operations.
