FPE Automation's popular Machine Vision Concepts: Cognex EasyBuilder Programming one-day workshop will be at Cognex Corporation's Naperville location on Wednesday, February 5, 2020



In-Sight is Cognex’s powerfully and fully integrated vision sensor software. The In-Sight/EasyBuilder® software allows you to connect, configure, emulate, operate, maintain, and expand all from an integrated user environment. With no programming needed, applications are deployed quickly. This includes automatic extraction of features, setting smart parameters and limits.

The In-Sight® Explorer EasyBuilder® interface walks you through the process of setting up your vision application, step by step. Great for all users, regardless of previous experience. 

One-day event offers hands-on training.

We will cover the difference between vision sensors and vision system and other solutions. We’ll discuss general machine vision concepts, lighting, lenses, resolution and other factors you’ll need to consider when engineering a vision system. We’ll go over Cognex In-Sight EasyBuilder programming examples. Then, we’ll finish off the day with a hands-on session with actual parts. Bring your own parts with you! 


Anyone who is responsible for production, quality, automation, maintenance, and system integration or engineering in a manufacturing environment, also interested in learning about machine vision will gain valuable information from their time spent with the vision gurus at FPE Automation and Cognex.
