ACS Becomes a Cognex Certified Training Facility

Ensuring comprehensive in-depth machine vision training

ACS is proud to announce that we have become one of the first Cognex Certified Training Providers (CTP) in the country.  Our instructors, Jessie Toland and John Sprinkle have successfully completed over 11 hours of training to become Certified Trainers while our training facility has been updated to meet the CTP program requirements.
The purpose of the CTP program is to assure our customer receive the same quality and depth of training as if conducted by Cognex trainers.   Students will use the most recent version of Cognex software, hardware, firmware and training materials.
We invite our customers to participate in one of our Cognex Machine Vision and Industrial ID  Training classes

SurfaceFX Feature Extract Technology

SurfaceFX (Surface Feature Extract)
 is a product that utilizes an algorithm which highlights surface features regardless of whether they are engraved, etched, embossed, dented, punctured, stamped, or raised. Once contrast is created in the image, Cognex's industry leading vision tools (OCRMax, PatMax RedLine, Blobs, InspectEdge, etc.) can easily inspect the part.

SurfaceFX utilizes a 4-segment quadrant controlled light and a Cognex IS8000 or IS5705 Series camera.  It uses reflections and shadows from the different angled lights to determine the surface structure.  The Cognex algorithm combines images from different light sources to create the resulting image.
