Extensive set of reliable vision tools address a broad range of applications

With VisionPro, users can access a robust library of pattern matching, blob, caliper, line location, image filtering, optical character recognition and verification (OCR and OCV), and AI-based vision tools, as well as 1D and 2D barcode reading, to perform a variety of functions, from inspection and identification to measurement and robotic guidance. VisionPro software is fully integrated with extensive .NET C# and C++ class libraries and user controls. 

Flexible development environment and modular tool blocks

The VisionPro QuickBuild prototyping environment combines the power and flexibility of advanced programming with the speed and ease of graphical, drag-and-drop application development. Intelligent software fixtures tools dynamically, while reusable tool groups and user-definable tools shorten development time. With the option to quickly load and execute jobs or manually configure tools by code, you can reduce cycle time no matter your approach. 

  • Drag and drop—Link between tools to communicate values, results, and images
  • Scripting—Build managed applications with C# or VB
  • Programming—Configure acquisition, select, and optimize vision tools, and make pass/fail decisions
