Manufacturers within life sciences and medical industries require 100% data integrity and extremely reliable components that are small enough fit into their instruments. From reading labels on specimen tubes or directly marked surgical instruments, to automated presence/absence detection of microtiter plates, manufacturers depend on the highest levels of performance and flexibility, with minimal integration effort.

DIRECT PART MARKING

DIRECT PART MARKING

Old DPMs never die, nor do they fade away. At least they’re not supposed to meet their demise before the part carrying them goes out of service. One of the major challenges of using DPMs (short for “direct part marks”) to trace products and parts lies in the need for permanence. If a part is to be incorporated into a brand-new Boeing 737 and the aircraft is expected to stay in service for several decades, then the DPM on that part needs to last several decades as well. This is known as “cradle-to-grave traceability” – a fundamental requirement for the sake of quality control and public safety.

Machine Vision Can Do More Than You Think

Machine Vision Can Do More Than You Think

Many are unaware of the extent to which the theoretical field of computer vision has produced tangible benefits for manufacturing.

The ability to automatically extract information from digital images opens many doors for manufacturers striving to cut costs, improve quality and streamline their processes overall. The primary uses of machine vision are inspection, gauging, and robot guidance. This white paper by Omron Microscan explores machine vision’s fundamental functions, benefits for industrial automation and real-world applications.
