Adept Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADEP), the leading provider of intelligent vision-guided robotics and global robotics services, today introduced AdeptSight? 2.0, a powerful expansion of Adept?s PC-based machine vision product portfolio.
AdeptSight 2.0 takes Adept beyond Robot Vision Guidance and introduces a number of new features and capabilities that make it easier and more cost-effective for systems integrators and automation users to design and use vision guidance and inspection in manufacturing.
AdeptSight 2.0 includes a new Color option, adding acquisition and calibration of color images, a color matching tool, and color processing necessary for advanced part inspection. New calibration wizards now support additional camera positions: arm-mounted, tool-mounted, and upward facing cameras to enable development of ?inspect while moving? or ?vision-on-the-fly? applications. Additionally, AdeptSight 2.0 is now packaged and available for both integrated robot guidance and inspection or as a fully standalone vision inspection product.
"With AdeptSight 2.0, material inspection, handling and assembly are made even more flexible, powerful and cost effective,? said Gordon Deans, Vice-President Business Development and General Manager, Adept Technology Canada. "The new color locator capability was specifically developed for high speed packaging applications and the new camera mounting options and simplified calibration wizards open up a much broader range of markets and customers to Adept vision products.?
AdeptSight 2.0 runs on commercial PCs with Microsoft(R) Windows(R) and comes complete with all the necessary hardware including camera, lens and accessories. AdeptSight is an easy-to-use, standalone vision guidance and inspection package. Incorporated into the Adept DeskTop? development environment, it integrates vision guidance with the complete line-up of Adept Cobra SCARA, Adept Viper 6-axis and Adept Python linear robots.
