Microscan announces that its MicroHAWK Platform has been honored with a Vision Systems Design Innovators Award for innovation and service in the vision and image processing industry.
Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision, verification, and lighting solutions, announced today that its MicroHAWK® Platform was recognized by the judges of the annual Vision Systems Design Innovators Awards program. The judging panel consisted of esteemed experts from system integrator and end-user companies.
"We continue to observe a trend toward the ‘flattening' of the industrial automation architecture, enabling manufacturers to do more with less," Microscan President Scott Summerville states. "Like the evolution of cell phones to smart phones, the evolution of barcode imagers and PC-based machine vision cameras to smart cameras is yielding single solutions with unlimited application potential. The MicroHAWK smart cameras have the ability to offer what were once thought of as independent technologies on a single, all-in-one platform."
Of the Vision Systems Design Innovators Awards, Alan Bergstein, publisher of Vision Systems Design, states, "This prestigious program allows Vision Systems Design to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products and services in the vision and image processing industry. Our 2016 Honorees are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact in the industry."
The Innovators Awards are judged based on the following criteria:
Impact on Designers, Systems Integrators, End Users
Fulfilling a need in the market that hasn't been addressed
