Automation Manager is a drag-and-drop environment that enables a single program to incorporate elements of machine vision, gauging, motion control, control logic, and other system functions. Multiple hardware sources can be incorporated and all controlled from one software package. The image-processing engine offers functions such as calibration, color, edge, correlation, blob, unwrap, and others, as well as an image viewer. 2-D and 3-D calibration modules are included for cameras, lasers, and stereo vision systems. The software supports hardware such as thermal cameras, laser scanners, range sensors, and analog devices.

NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE
Machine Vision and Automation Software
Soft Automation releases version 7 of Automation Manager
Automation Manager is a drag and drop environment so a single program can incorporate elements of machine vision, gauging, motion control, control logic etc. Multiple hardware sources can be incorporated and all controlled from one software package.
Companies that have adopted Automation Manager this year include
-Large Phone manufacturer for visual machine guided part insertion using a camera and a 4 axis stage
-Scrap yard sorting scrap using a color line scan camera for detecting copper and PCB boards
-Glass manufacturer for detecting defect in glass at approx 3 parts per second
-Bolt manufacture using multiple camera to verify and measure threads. Common tolerance files in this case in csv format are loaded across multiple systems
