Top 10 Machine Vision Technology Solution Providers 2016

Machine vision systems continue to shrink in size and cost, while growing in power, functionality, and ease-of-use. The changing requirements in the manufacturing arena are creating demand for machine vision systems to assist a growing variety of manufacturers to keep the costs down. These systems replace the traditional, discrete sensor tracking and sensing systems with their ability to redefine the production process.

The state-of-the-art machine vision systems provide a noncontact means of inspecting and identifying parts, accurately measuring dimensions, or guiding robots or other machines in operations. They use a combination of infrared 3D scanners and 2D machine vision cameras to capture the size of boxes, irregular shaped containers, pallets, and even full truckloads. When combined with images of the container for verification purposes, the 3D dimensional data can then be used to audit shipping costs, optimize trucking shipments, or to insure that customers pay their fair share of shipping costs. In a nutshell, high-resolution machine vision systems can enable material handling operations while conducting important quality checks at the same time.

There are a multitude of vendors who help enterprises with in-depth expertise in embracing efficient machine vision solutions for added benefits. In the last few months, we have looked at scores of machine vision technology solution providers and have shortlisted the ones that are at the forefront of tackling challenges in the arena.
