JANUARY 21, 2010--Microscan (Renton, WA, USA) invited a select group of key customers and media to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the dedication of its Nashua, NH Northeast Technology Center. The 20,000 sq. ft. facility is dedicated to R&D of machine vision, machine vision lighting, direct part mark reading, and verification
products and includes engineering labs, a training facility and a product demonstration room.

At the dedication, Microscan introduced its Track, Trace and Control (TTC) software, developed in partnership with Cogiscan (Bromont, QC, Canada), that can be used with any of Microscan’s machine vision or auto ID hardware in plant-wide information systems. The TTC software is the first jointly released solution since the company’s strategic partnership agreement with Cogiscan last year. Microscan’s TTC software is designed to provide work-in-progress history in factory tracking, validation, and process control systems and provide product traceability. With TTC software, efficient data collection is combined with error proofing to demonstrate process compliance, while reducing material and assembly costs.

Andrew Wilson, Editor of Vision Systems Design, the keynote presenter at the opening event commented, “Today, Microscan’s innovative products now encompass every aspect of machine vision from barcode readers, add-in peripheral boards, smart cameras, and machine-vision software. What has happened over the last 30 years in the machine vision industry is a testament to the engineers and systems integrators who have developed and deployed such products. Indeed, without machine-vision systems, hypodermic needles would not be as safe, automotive parts would not exhibit such exacting tolerances, and food products would not be packed as precisely.

Without the pioneers of machine-vision peripherals, many, many lives may have been lost due to faulty products being shipped. At the opening of this Center in Nashua, I know this great tradition of innovation will continue and I look forward to the exciting new technologies and products emerging from this technology center.”
