Learning Labs Looks at Vision Systems

Get ready for some cutting-edge education programs covering visions systems at next week's Pacific Design & Manufacturing Show in Anaheim, Calif. These two-hour programs are available to all attendees of the Pacific Design and Manufacturing Show, as well as its co-located events: MD&M West, ATX West, Plastec West, AeroCon, Electronics West, and WestPack.

On the vision front, you'll find Package Tracking & Visions Systems at 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 11. This session will review the successes and failures of alternative approaches to achieving packaging traceability. It will look at how to ensure real-time visibility and continuity to reduce supply disruptions and eliminate information latency, and it will also explore implementing systems for efficient data collection and analysis to improve integrity and safety of products and supply.

The program will be chaired by Jim Warner, founder and principal industrial designer at JimWarner3D. David Dechow, staff engineer for intelligent robotics/machine vision at Fanuc America Corp., will also be on the program.

On February 13 from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m., you'll be able to attend Technological Advances in Vision Precision. This session will explore developments in vision precision and detail the complexity involved, including dimensional measurement, end gripping, and grasping.

Presenters will include Steve Kinney, technical director at JAI Inc., Fanuc's Dechow, and Jonathan Ludlow, machine vision promoter at Microscan Systems Inc.

You can download the Learning Labs e-book prior to the show, and you can register for any of these Learning Labs, or others on the schedule, here.
