EngaTech Integrates Cognex VisionPro with Adept Quattro Robot
EngaTech developed a proof of concept system for an ink cartridge sorting center that identifies
40 unique products, and with an Adept Quattro robot, picks and places the parts into various sorting
The system has recently been upgraded to run in a 64-bit environment and MS Parallel Processing Library
so that in the future the system will have the capability of identifying a total of 120 unique
The Cognex vision system communicates directly with the Adept ACE environment and together provides
calibration and part tracking.
Cognex has released VisionPro 7 with full 64-bit support.
32-bit applications are limited to 2 GB of working memory; some applications easily
exhaust the 2 gigabyte memory limit allowed on 32-bit operating systems. For applications that
require more than 2 gigabytes of runtime memory, using a 64-bit operating system is
Line scan cameras can easy acquire very large images. For example, 8K wide by 20K high images are
not uncommon. This is 160 MB for grayscale images and 3 times that size for a true color
RGB line scan image!
This feature will also increase the ceiling for the number of pattern matching PatMax classifiers
that the system can utilize. This is great for pick and place robotic systems where a Cognex Vision Pro
system identifies a large number of unique products for sorting.
5 Megapixel Self-Contained Vision System
The In-Sight 5605 is a high-resolution (5 megapixel), self-contained vision system offering
unprecedented power and flexibility for applications that require visualization of very small
defects, even in a large field of view.
The In-Sight 5605 offers the widest range of features and advantages available in a high-resolution
vision system, including full 5.0 megapixel resolution, support for Gigabit Ethernet communication,
IP67 rating to withstand dust and wash down, plus a full library of high-performance Cognex vision
tools for easily application setup and reliable performance.
EngaTech Inc. serves medical device, pharmaceutical, automation integrators, machine builders, manufacturing
and packaging companies resolve or prevent production and quality control issues with automated inspection systems.
We enjoy working with clients that believe a job worth doing, is worth doing right, but have the
sensibility that the rest of the world doesn't work that way. EngaTech is here
to help such clients achieve those high standards with a price that is cost effective to all stake
holders in the project.
EngaTech has been implementing Cognex-based machine vision solutions for over 10 years and continues to
maintain the prestige status of Cognex Partner System Integrators (PSI).
We can provide machine vision systems integration, consulting, or full turnkey automation solutions with
