Welcome to Vision ICS

Guidance, Identification, Gauging, and InspectionIn today's competitive market, manufacturers are constantly required to lower costs, reduce scrap, and achieve higher quality from their production lines. Machine Vision is an enabling technology that allows manufacturers to meet production requirements, lower costs, and better utilize their personnel. However, despite vision systems getting more and more user friendly and affordable, Machine Vision is not yet "Easy to Use" and often requires a significant amount of time to master. Between the lighting and optics selection and implementation, programming the actual vision system, and communicating results with other devices, Machine Vision is truly a multidisciplinary expert ice. Typically it takes six months or longer to become proficient with machine vision and years to truly master it. All too often, manufacturers' production requirements just don't allow the time for their internal engineers to come "up to speed" on this dynamic technology. That's where we come in.

Our mission is to help Manufacturers, Machine Builders, Systems Integrators, and OEM's to rapidly incorporate Machine Vision into their process, develop successful applications, and positively impact their bottom line. We offer system programming contracting, consulting, system set-up & commissioning, and training services to help you realize the maximum benefit from your Machine Vision system. Call on us to help you implement your most difficult applications: Robotic and Mechanical Guidance applications, Identifying parts using vision characteristics, 1D or 2D Barcodes, or human readable characters, Gauging critical part dimensions, or inspecting parts for contamination, debris, scratches, short shots, etc. Whatever keeps you from completing your goals.

If your company is working to become more environmentally friendly, there is no technology that is Greener than Machine Vision. Rather than manufacturing products that are out of specification and scrapping huge batches of material or worse facing costly recalls, you can use Machine Vision to catch the defects as they occur and if necessary stop the line to correct the problem reducing scrap and cost. Better yet, monitor your system performance over time and correct issues before they cause scrap or even use Machine Vision for closed loop feedback to continuously keep your production optimized.
