DS1000 3D Laser Profiler

Cognex LogoCalibrated 3D Laser Profiler
DS1000 optimizes product quality with 3D inspections

The Cognex DS1000 optimizes product quality by providing three-dimensional inspection of your products.  The DS1000 Series displacement sensors provide an integrated digital camera and laser stripe illuminator, mounted in a single mechanically robust package.


The VC5 vision controller is a compact, network-ready vision controller that can be directly connected to the DS1000 extending the sensors capabilities by providing:

    • Direct VGA output 
    • 8 inputs, optically isolated
    • 16 outputs, optically isolated
    • Encoder inputs for connecting a single-ended or differential encoder
    • RS-232 for serial communications

Advantech Launches 10-Finger Multi-touch Computer
Built-in 7H hardness anti-scratch surface
The new TPC-1581WP is the latest touch panel PC from Advantech and features the ability to use all ten fingers simultaneously to control all aspects of an application. The 16:9 ratio 15.6" HD display also has an integrated 7H hardness anti-scratch glass screen, meaning that it can be touched by workers carrying tools without fear of damage.


The TPC-1581WP also features a new powerful Intel 4th Generation Core i3 1.7GHz processor with, 4GB DDR3 RAM which makes multi-touch operation even smoother and provides greater power efficiency and faster processing to process large amounts of data and 3D files.


  • Diverse System IO and Isolated Digital IO
  • Supports Fieldbus Protocol 
  • 3G/GPS/GPRS/WiFi Communication
  • Supports MRAM by iDoor Technology

Electric Actuators with Battery-less Absolute Encoder
The convenience of an absolute encoder, the cost and simplicity of an incremental encoder
The IAI RCP5 series actuator with battery-less absolute encoder, incorporates an innovative encoder requiring no hassle or cost of battery replacement or adjustment.

Rotational position data is recognized by a combination of gears making the battery, which has been a required component of any traditional absolute encoder, no longer necessary. This encoder is ideal for the automobile industry and other production facilities where many absolute type actuators are used.

3200 Series Modular Belt Conveyors
Designed for medium to heavy parts, flexible layout options
Dorner's 3200 Series modular belt conveyor is ideal for parts handling, accumulation, positioning, high speeds, long runs and product transfers. The 3200 features innovative transfer options and complete layout flexibility including; multiple curves, inclines and declines.
Industry best V-guiding provides positive belt tracking, even under demanding side load applications.  Modular belts and spliced standard belts allow for quick belt changing, reducing downtime.The precise rack and pinion belt tensioning and sealed-for-life bearings means low maintenance.
