Decipher Hard-to-Read Codes with Cognex ViDi
The Cognex VisionPro ViDi Blue- Read tool is a dedicated solution that deciphers badly deformed, skewed, and poorly etched codes using optical character recognition (OCR) out of the box. The pre-trained font library identifies most text without additional programming or font training, for fast, easy implementation. With the ability to retain on application-specific fonts and an easy-to-use interface, ViDi Blue-Read dramatically reduces development times, and it can also be retrained to adjust to specific OCR application requirements—no vision expertise required. This tool provides robust, reliable results for your difficult OCR applications.
Vacuum Grippers Created for
Collaborative Robots
Robotiq Vacuum Grippers are built specifically for Universal Robots. They can handle a wide range of applications and are ideal for picking up uneven and even workpieces made of different materials, such as cardboard, glass, sheet metal (dry) and plastic. 
  • Plug + Play
  • Easy Programming
  • Fast installation
  • Full Customization
  • Low Noise
  • Efficient & Easy Automation
  • Quick Response Time
The EPick gripper is connected to the cobot wrist, needs no air supply, and is easy to handle.
The AirPick has a powerful vacuum flow, a compact design for cobots, and has low noise.
A Partner for Your MiR1000: ROEQ TR1000
The ROEQ TR1000 Top Roller was developed to support heavy internal logistics in industrial facilities. The basic functionality of the TR1000 is to perform automated load and unload operations. Its design enables safe and reliable transportation of goods, with varying footprints. With a TR1000, the MiR1000 is able to carry out scheduled pick-up and delivery tasks, with many different types of heavy and oversized goods.

High-Precision 3D Scanning of Glass &
Other Specular Materials
Gocator 2512 delivers high-precision 3D scanning of glass and other specular materials including polished metals and plastics. The sensor also provides exceptional performance in measurement of component assemblies with various challenging surface finishes (e.g., transparent, anti-glare, coated/uncoated, low/high contrast, UV, and glossy).
  • Optimized optical design for high-precision 3D data on specular targets
  • Specialized laser projection technology for low-sensitivity to target angle & greater performance
  • Unique 3D scanning capability for scanning specular & diffuse targets simultaneously
  • Wide specular field of view for scanning more of the target with fewer sensors
