Product tracking links image storage to production and order data

Smart manufacturing depends more and more on vision systems, artificial intelligence (AI) and using metrics collected from a variety of inputs from the floor. However simple IOT solutions can be applied to solve old problems. How can you prove to a customer that when you shipped the product that it was perfect.

Avoid buying a vision system that will become obsolete

Too often does a well organized project engineer specify exactly what is required, purchases the equipment, and finds out after two years that they cannot get upgrades or spares. The key to a solid net return on your asset and to avoid obsolete equipment in the future is to plan your vision system purchase as if you are building a vision network. 

  • Discover 38 questions to guarantee your product life cycle when purchasing a vision solution.
  • Understand the technologies used in how to build vision systems.
  • Follow best practice to make sure your investment is " IOT and Industry 4.0"  ready.

Perpetual versus annual subscription

A perpetual license is one that you pay for once and you can use as long as you wish. Often software services are delivered as an annual subscription. This is common for cloud based services. So why would anyone choose a software service if you have to pay annually? Lets look at the advantages. A software service is much like a rental. In this case you should not have to pay such a large amount up front, reducing CapEx. The software can be upgraded at no cost so no more old out of date solutions. The user can often avail of additional services such as remote support, and features that can be metered such as cloud storage.

Reduce the cost of machine vision systems

Machine vision systems are in essence industrial IT solutions. Often when purchasing this equipment, the project engineer is used to buying a machine, such as a coater or an extruder and categorizes the inspection system as a machine also. 100% inspection solutions are completely solid state. There are no moving parts or consumables. Let's look at the anatomy of a vision system. What are the key components?
