May 19, 2020
The MicroHawk V/F cameras can be used for precise inspection.

MicroHawk V/F Designed to visually inspect finished parts, Omron’s newest line of quality-assurance cameras can read bar codes and detect surface defects and deviations involving size and color. Molders and other manufacturers can integrate the cameras into their parts-handling systems.  

What’s new? The line of cameras, which made its debut in January. 

Benefits Precise inspection. By combining bar-coding capabilities with vision inspection, the high-resolution, 5-megapixel cameras eliminate the need for multiple pieces of hardware.
