Microscan Presents New Capabilities of MicroHAWK Barcode Readers and Machine Vision Solutions at ADM Cleveland Expo

Microscan will demonstrate new capabilities of the MicroHAWK family of products – the world's smallest high-performance barcode readers and smart cameras – at the ADM Cleveland Expo March 29th and 30th in Cleveland, Ohio.

RENTON, WA, March 15, 2017Microscan, a global technology leader in barcoding, machine vision, verification, and lighting solutions, will partner with Lakewood Automation, a leading distributor of electronics, controls, automation products and pneumatics, in Ohio, to demonstrate new capabilities of the high-performance MicroHAWK family of barcode readers and machine vision solutions at Booth # 323 at Advanced Design and Manufacturing Expo, taking place March 29th and 30th, 2017, in Cleveland, Ohio.

Microscan experts will host live demonstrations of MicroHAWK imagers – the world’s smallest barcode readers. MicroHAWK, in combination with the browser-based WebLink user interface, allows users to adjust reader settings remotely and to monitor results in real time from any web-enabled device without installing any software. With MicroHAWK and WebLink, production line changeovers can be accommodated easily with just a few clicks from any web browser. Visitors to the exhibition will learn how MicroHAWK readers are able to read any barcode on any part, how they can readjust for new barcodes on the fly, and how their auto-enhance image capture capabilities can read barcodes on PCBs of different colors. MicroHAWK barcode readers perform right out of the box with as little as one minute of setup time for new jobs. The software that powers MicroHAWK is stored on the readers themselves, offering universal job portability so that switching decode parameters, changing devices, and saving and recalling jobs is simpler than ever.

The recently-launched MicroHAWK® ultra-high definition (UHD) imagers will also be on display at booth # 323. The new MicroHAWK UHD imagers and smart cameras can decode very small and difficult-to-read barcodes, including two-dimensional Data Matrix symbols and direct part marks (DPM) used in electronics manufacturing. Microscan’s application experts will demonstrate how MicroHAWK UHD can decode symbols with an x-dimension as small as 2 mil (0.0254 mm) – almost invisible to the naked eye.

Show attendees will discover unprecedented flexibility and advantages in image acquisition, image processing, and communication available with Microscan’s machine vision smart cameras. The MicroHAWK smart cameras that will be demonstrated at the ADM Expo are twice as fast as competitive solutions, and they can be adapted to various optical working distances without any manual adjustment.
