2000 Vision Systems
Buyers Guide

by Jesse Jones and Laurel Thoennes

 

Vision systems technology and availability is soaring to new heights as more industries are finding vision systems useful in practical applications. Each year, a growing number of manufacturers introduce new products and services to meet the growing demand for video inspection and noncontact measuring in product manufacturing.

 Various vision systems use an array of technologies, including measuring and detecting microscopes, miniature cameras, high-

resolution cameras mounted on coordinate measuring machines, lasers, and X-rays. Among the most common components of these systems are cameras, frame grabbers, PCs and software.

 The range of uses for vision systems is equally varied. Online gaging and measurement, orientation, presence/absence, parts sorting, foreign material detection, and high-volume part inspection and installation verification represent just a few of the ways in which this important manufacturing technology can be put to work.

 Quality Digest's 2000 Vision Systems Buyers Guide is more inclusive than ever, featuring more than 115 vision systems products from more than 60 manufacturers that responded to our information requests. The guide presents an alphabetical listing of these companies, including the company's contact information (address, phone number, fax and Web address) and descriptions of specific products and services they provide.

 As with all of our guides, the Vision Systems Buyers Guide is in no way meant to endorse or exclude any particular organization. It's instead intended to assist readers in the search for the products and services they desire. To ensure the guide's accuracy, we only list information that the vendors directly provide to us.

 If you find this guide helpful or have any observations or

questions you'd like to share, please contact us by phone or fax, or e-mail us at vision@qualitydigest.com .
