Cognex Designer Vision Software

Decrease the time it takes to develop, deploy, and maintain 3D and 2D multi-camera applications

VisionPro Vision Software Vision Tools

Beginning with the introduction of Cognex Designer software, Cognex Designer automatically includes the latest VisionPro software and capabilities. This enables users to take advantage of the graphical capabilities of Cognex Designer with the well-known and respected vision tools of VisionPro software, including PatMax®, IDMax®, and OCRMax®, and PatMax® AutoTune (introduced with Cognex Designer 2.0.)  

Advanced computer vision technology
VisionPro® and Cognex Vision Library (CVL®) Power Tools have the intelligence to ignore non-critical variations in appearance while focusing on the critical features that determine a product's acceptability. Power Tools do not require extensive image preprocessing to achieve the final solution, adding faster application development for the vision engineer and lower lifecycle costs for the company.

Geometric pattern matching and inspection
The patented PatMax® algorithm is the industry's gold standard for part and feature location, providing accuracy and repeatability under the most challenging conditions.
