2002 Vision Systems Directory Directory
Welcome to Quality Digest’s
2002 Vision Systems Directory. The range of uses for vision
systems is both great and 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.
Vision systems technology and its availability are as
great today as ever before, as new industries find vision
systems to be 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 a variety of technologies,
including measuring and detecting microscopes, miniature
cameras, high-resolution cameras mounted on CMMs, lasers,
and X-rays. Among the most common components of these systems
are cameras, frame grabbers, PCs and software.
Quality Digest’s 2002 Vision Systems Directory is
more inclusive than ever, featuring vision system products
from more than 120 manufacturers that responded to our requests
for information. The directory presents an alphabetical
listing of these companies, including the company’s
contact information (address, phone number, fax number and
Web address) and detailed descriptions of offerings, if
Many of the listed companies have also provided detailed
descriptions of specific vision products, which can be found
at www.qualitydigest.com/directories. We strongly urge you
to visit these companies’ Web sites or contact them
personally to learn exactly what products they offer.
As with all of our guides, the 2002 Vision Systems Directory

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.
We appreciate any feedback you might have on our directories.
