Calculate Machine Vision Savings

April 1, 2009
An online tool is available to help manufacturers understand the benefits and cost savings that can be achieved through the use of machine vision and industrial identification systems. 
The Cost Savings Advisor offers the ability to evaluate a cost savings plan using the supplier’s vision inspection, automation or identification applications. The results highlight other potential benefits that customers may not have previously considered. Cost savings opportunities can be estimated within three main sections: product inspection applications, automation guidance applications and identification/traceability applications. Once the results are calculated, a record of the evaluation can be printed to share with colleagues.Cognex Corp.www.cognex.com508.650.3000
