JULY 17-- Applied Vision (Akron, OH, USA; www.appliedvision.com) has issued a statement opposing a recent claim by QUISS (Puchheim, Germany; www.quiss.com) to have developed the "first [inspection] system worldwide to use Gigabit Ethernet technology to inspect shells and lined shells."
Applied Vision installed its first inspection system using digital Gigabit Ethernet technology in January 2002 at Dairy Farmers of America in Mechanicsburg, PA. Since then, the company has installed more than 750 digital Gigabit Ethernet cameras at companies like Ball Corporation, Rexam Corporation, Silgan Containers, United Can Company, Kian Joo and more. Applied Vision's Genius Vision Systems use digital Gigabit Ethernet technology to detect shell and end defects at line speeds and reject them from the production line.
Long recognized as leaders in the technological development of machine vision inspection, Applied Vision first recognized the benefits of digital Gigabit Ethernet technology more than four years ago. At that time they invested in the development of systems utilizing the technology in order to provide their customers with the best possible inspection solution. Applied Vision continues leading the development of this technology with current research looking into how the technology can be further applied to gain greater efficiencies.
