Finally: Vision Sensing in Tight Spaces
Cognex Machine Vision
The compact size of the Cognex In-Sight 2000 Mini expands the number of potential application for vision sensors and allows users to deploy vision sensors into more areas of their operation. In-Sight 2000 Mini models are 68% smaller by volume than standard In-Sight 2000 vision sensors, so they can fit into tight spaces. They also come standard with a liquid lens autofocus module, enabling faster job changeovers and the ability to change focus when the sensor is mounted in inaccessible places. Key features include:

  • Integrated light optimizes image formation: Ideal for close-range applications and extremely space-restricted machines. Removes the need for costly external lighting. Lenses and lighting are field-interchangeable to adjust to different application requirements.
  • Autofocus technology adjusts to varying part heights: An autofocus module powered by liquid lens technology automatically focuses to preset positions, eliminating the need to manually refocus the lens or physically move the camera sensor during changeovers or job set up.
  • Powerful vision tools solve a wide range of applications: Proven In-Sight vision tools including pattern, pixel count, brightness, contrast, and edge tools, solve simple location, presence/absence, measurement, and counting applications.
  • Modular design adapts to changing application requirements: Maximum flexibility to mount in tight spaces, simplifies wiring and optical paths, and minimizes the need to design new mechanical fixtures
New: Electric Linear Actuators
ACS is excited to bring on a new line of electric linear actuators: Tolomatic. This new addition expands our capabilities to bring our customers precision motion, press, and food grade offerings.
Check out the video below for an overview of products offered, and reach out to us for additional information.
Bringing Powerful Part Feeding to
Award-Winning Epson Robots
Powered by Epson robots, IntelliFlex Software, and Vision Guide, the IntelliFlex is a simple feeding solution to accommodate a wide variety of parts.
  1. Vision Guide: Identifies part sizes, shapes, and positions to automatically optimize picking order. Vision development time is drastically reduced using a point-and-click interface
  2. Flexible Feeder: Supports part sizes ranging from 5 to 150 mm. Compatible with a wide range of parts, simple to complex as well as delicate materials
  3. Robot: Seamlessly integrated with the vision system, flexible feeder and Epson RC+ software, an Epson 6-Axis or SCARA robot efficiently picks the singulated parts

  • Reduce installation & configuration time
  • Easily tackle high-mix low-volume applications
  • Quick parts changeover
  • Easily optimize for complete parts control: smart auto-tuning automatically adjusts the feeder parameters for new parts setup using built-in artificial intelligence
  • Unique directional vibration capabilities: multi-axis vibration technology for optimized parts control and singulation

ACS possesses this pairing in-office, so you can send us your prove-outs!
Dog Spotlight- Meet Bleu
If you've visited our Marietta office before, then you already know that we are a pup-friendly workplace. We feature one of the ACS dogs every other month to let you "meet" them too.
