CEVILOG thanks you for trust and
wish you all the best for the year 2020.
The transition period for the In-Sight 1000, 5000 and 7000 Gen1 ranges, which began in April 2018, will come to an end at the end of December 2019. From this date, the marketing of the relevant references will no longer be ensured.
We invite our customers affected by the Gen1 references listed below to get closer to us. Together we will define the best strategy to adopt, in order to avoid being confronted with a break in supply.
Many accessories are available to facilitate integration in place of these models. This transition is also an opportunity to upgrade the performance of your vision system with new tools and features provided by Generation 2.
For your information, the following In-Sight 5000 references will in turn be included in a transition period starting in April 2020.
We remain at your disposal for further information.
New 3D Technology Solves Challenging High-Speed Assembly Verification and In-Line Measurement Applications
Cognex’s diversifies its 3D product offering, releasing new area scan system, laser displacement sensor, and 3D part location tool
Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX), the leader in machine vision and industrial barcode reading, today announced the release of two high-performance 3D vision systems, the 3D-A5000 area scan 3D system and DSMax32T laser displacement 3D system, and a new method of 3D part location, PatMax 3D. These three new offerings position Cognex to meet customers’ diverse 3D vision needs for 3D inspection applications, bringing superior 3D inspection to factories and manufacturers.
The 3D-A5000 acquires detailed area scan 3D images in a fraction of the time of current methods, thanks to the patent-pending 3D LightBurst™ technology. This technology casts a unique blue light pattern onto the part, capturing a full field-of-view 3D point cloud image in under 200 milliseconds from over 1.5 million 3D data points. It enables higher throughput and shorter cycle times for time-critical in-line applications.
The DSMax32T uses telecentric optics and unique high-speed laser scanning technology to acquire full frame, high-quality images. Combining data from 2,000 profile points, a full resolution, full frame 18 kHz acquisition rate, and advanced optics significantly increases throughput compared to traditional laser displacement sensors.
In addition to the industry leading 3D toolset, the 3D-A5000 also takes advantage of the new PatMax 3D™ part location tool that finds objects within a 3D point cloud image. PatMax 3D is a fast and accurate solution for locating and identifying objects which are tilted, stacked, or not properly seated with a fixture. The toolset is natively accessed through VisionPro® software and the Cognex Designer™ graphical user interface, making 3D vision applications easy to configure and deploy
“Traditional area scan 3D systems have good image quality in a lab but are too slow for production lines and not built for industrial environments. Displacement sensors force customers to decide between speed or accuracy. Cognex had solved both challenges,” observes Joerg Kuechen, Cognex Senior Vice President, Vision Products. “The 3D-A5000 is not only faster than current area scan 3D cameras, its rugged design provides reliable results under tough factory conditions that often distort outcomes on competitive systems. Paired with the speed and robustness of PatMax 3D, it enables customers to solve applications they could not solve before. Similarly, DSMax is fast and accurate, delivering full resolution images at speeds more than 10 times faster than traditional displacement sensors.”
Both the 3D-A5000 and DSMax32T feature IP65-rated housings that are built to last in tough operating environments. The industrial designs ensure consistent measurement results, even under varying temperatures. The systems ship fully calibrated and are ready to use right out of the box delivering accurate, repeatable measurement results in real-world units.
Cognex Releases Deep Learning-Based Image Analysis Software Worldwide
VisionPro ViDi software combines the power of artificial intelligence with machine vision to solve the most complex manufacturing applications
Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX), the leader in machine vision and industrial barcode reading, today announced the worldwide availability of VisionPro® ViDi™, deep learning-based image analysis software optimized for factory automation. VisionPro ViDi combines artificial intelligence with Cognex’s industry-leading VisionPro machine vision software to solve manufacturing’s most challenging applications.
Manufacturers often perform complex inspections manually due to unpredictable defects and deviations that are too difficult to program and maintain using traditional machine vision. VisionPro ViDi combines human visual inspection capabilities with the reliability, repeatability, and speed of an automated system to solve applications that have previously been difficult to automate.
ViDi expands VisionPro’s core library of location, inspection, and classification tools with a new deep learning-based optical character recognition capability. The new ViDi OCR tool reads standard text without complex font training. For the first time, many challenging date and lot codes and embossed or etched text can be read reliably in an industrial environment.
“VisionPro users around the world can now use advanced artificial intelligence in their factories,” said Joerg Kuechen, Senior Vice President of Vision Products at Cognex Corporation. “If humans can learn to inspect products, VisionPro ViDi can too. Plus, VisionPro ViDi can be trained in just minutes with as few as 50 images.”
Cognex VisionPro ViDi is available now. For more information, visit cognex.com/ViDi or call 1-(855) 4-COGNEX.

Cognex Introduces the In-Sight Laser Profiler for Highly Accurate Part Dimension Verification
New laser profiler is the easiest to use and most accurate measurement sensor on the market
Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX), the world’s leader in machine vision, today introduced the In-Sight® Laser Profiler, an easy-to-use measurement system that verifies part dimensions. Cognex vision tools, accurate object detection and the EasyBuilder® interface make the new profiler an intuitive and highly reliable tool for obtaining height, gap, position, and angle measurements and detecting defects on the factory floor.
Part profile verifications are used across a wide range of industries, including automotive, electronics, consumer products, and food and beverage, to ensure parts are manufactured within specified tolerances. Slight dimensional variations can adversely affect product quality, consumer safety and brand integrity. The In-Sight Laser Profiler identifies these issues before they reach customers.
“Our customers have been asking for an easy-to-use laser profiler,” says Joerg Kuechen, Senior Vice President, Vision Products at Cognex. “The In-Sight Laser Profiler combines an easy-to-use interface and the VC200 vision controller, along with the accuracy and dependability of our 3D laser displacement technology. Anyone who knows how to use a 2D In-Sight system can set up a laser profiler application within minutes.”
By allowing users to set up inspection applications in a few easy steps, this new measurement system eliminates the complexity required by other laser profiling solutions. Additionally, the In-Sight Laser Profiler also makes it easier to monitor production line activity from anywhere on the factory floor using a web-enabled laptop, tablet or smartphone.
