Machine vision is used in a variety of industrial processes, like machine inspection, object recognition, pattern recognition, electronic component analysis – even recognition of signatures, optical characters and currency. Video cameras are used with analog-to-digital conversion and digital signal processing. And the image data is sent to the computer or controller.

Besides machine inspection, machine vision systems are also used for other applications like visual stock control and management, with barcode reading and counting, evaluating products in various stages of the process.

Cognex is the world’s leading provider of vision systems, software, sensors and industrial barcode readers used in manufacturing automation. Cotmac Electronics is the Authorised Solution Partner (ASP) for Cognex. Cotmac has been awarded the “Best in Vision” for India. Cotmac has designed and implemented machine vision inspection solutions using world class components from the repertoire of Cognex products. Our highly skilled and dedicated engineers have provided turnkey vision solutions to over 500 customers till date.
