Handheld barcode scanners are essential whenever specific products, clinical samples or work-in-progress (WIP) parts need to be reliably tracked without the luxury of a fully automated system.
Depending on how long a part or product needs to remain traceable, the relative permanence of various marking methods could be a game-changer. In the aerospace industry, for instance, parts could be in use for as long as 30 years.
As the plant floor has become more digitally connected, the relationship between robots and machine vision has merged into a single, seamless platform, setting the stage for a new generation of more responsive vision-driven robotic systems.
"The startups that have made it to the final competition are indicative of the levels of innovation in the machine vision and imaging industries," according to Jeff Burnstein, President, AIA. "I don't envy the job in front of our judges having to select only one winner."

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is one of the most reliable methods for parts sensing in factory automation today. SICK has made this technology affordable and easy to use! Click on the video link below to learn about the TiM1xx LiDAR sensor and how it provides: - Area scanning LiDAR technology in a standard sensor package - 200-degree field of view and 3 meter sensing range allows for 169 square feet of area scanning - Compact size and light weight enables ease of deployment in "non-standard" type applications, like end-of-arm robotic tooling - Wide area scanning without having to mount a transmitter and receiver makes installation much easier - IO Link for easy configuration
