HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL., April 16, 2018 - Omron Automation, a trusted partner and globally recognized leader in providing innovative technological solutions for todays manufacturing challenges, recently received an award for its groundbreaking machine vision technology. Vision Systems Design, a news source favored by professionals in machine vision and image processing, has named Omron as one of its 2018 Innovators Award honorees.

The pioneer in sensing and control equipment recently upgraded its machine vision portfolio to include several cutting-edge technologies that expand its ability to address challenges in automation. These innovations combine unprecedented power, speed and precision with elegant and intuitive hardware, making it easier than ever to drive automation forward with all-encompassing solutions.
Omrons machine vision product portfolio addresses specific challenges for the factory of the future. The MicroHAWK MV family puts advanced machine vision capability into extremely compact and embedded devices that help manufacturers make the best possible use of space. Taking vision power to a whole new level, the one-of-a-kind HAWK MV-4000 puts near-PC processing speeds into a single smart camera.
These technologies complement Omrons existing machine vision systems which include the popular FH Series. This best-in-class vision system is known for its unique combination of high-speed inspection, high-precision measurement and minimal programming requirements.
The MicroHAWK readers and the HAWK MV-4000 are innovations that build upon Omron Microscan technologies.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
