Testimonials: Ease of Use
Cognex vision solutions are flexible and user friendly being based on an intuitive user environment. Specialized functions and a wide range of vision tools allow operators to solve a wide range of applications without having to completely re-program.
Boston Scientific, one of the worlds largest medical device manufacturers decided to use vision technology on one US site as an identification solution for products prior to packaging. Now the company can ensure that catheters are correctly packaged before being shipped to hospitals. By using an automated vision solution up to 4000 devices a day can be shipped.
By implementing 2D marking and In-Sight reading technologies, we now have a foolproof and efficient way to ensure that our products are labeled properly.

The Philips factory at Chartres, France, specializing in automotive lighting systems supplies bulbs throughout the entire world. Here, Philips subjects it’s production to 100% inspection and control. Their aim was to achieve a failure rate of less than 10 ppm. With a production rate of 8,000 bulbs per hour, only an industrial vision system would be capable of reliably carrying out this type of control. Philips decided on Cognex In-Sight sensors, due to ease of implementation and vision software performance.
We appreciate the fact that Cognex systems are so easy to use. It has meant that staff have mastered the vision systems quickly, and maintenance costs have been cut. There’s no need for us to employ a machine vision system expert - our knowledge of the process has enabled us to optimize the application.

Ease of use was a decisive factor when ABB in the USA decided to have their FlexPicker robot guided by In-Sight vision sensors. Having successfully integrated In-Sight with the FlexPicker robot, the group now has plans to include In-Sight sensors with the rest of ABB’s extensive product line.
The real beauty of In-Sight is how simple it is to use, while providing all the power and flexibility of a traditional vision system. It would be difficult to go back to traditional styles of vision system programming.
