SP 6  for NC 6.0

Running NeuroCheck 6.0 on Windows 8

Running NC 6.0 on Windows 8As expected, due to its modern software architecture, NeuroCheck 6.0 installs and runs smoothly on Windows 8. As on Windows 7, it shows good run-time performance and RAM requirements.

However, despite successful testing, NeuroCheck does not recommend using Windows 8 for the time being. The reason, from their point of view, is the poor usability of Windows 8 on desktop and industrial PCs.

EVT Software offers the SmartMatch tool for locating/identifying objects

EVT LogoEyeVision machine-vision software contains a tool entitled “SmartMatch” that is ideal for locating/identifying objects. Specifically, this tool will find and recognize objects based on their graphic profile, shape and outline and inspect that object based on the characteristics and features that are defined by the user. With one click, it is possible to configure an object, identify its rotation position and determine whether or not it corresponds with the original. This command adapts seamlessly into the EVT software, simplifies many of the measuring and inspection tasks usually required and is extremely fast, making it an ideal choice for high-speed applications. It also makes complicated inspection systems, such as part sorting and stamped part inspection, easier and faster to accomplish.

NeuroCheck 6.0 – Upgraded Matching Capabilities

NeuroCheck LogoMany people recognize NeuroCheck as a pioneer in rotary template matching for machine vision. NeuroCheck 6.0 features upgrades to this tool that make the software even more powerful. Specifically, the software can not only locate randomly oriented objects, it can locate the object, move/orient tools for inspection and transmit the mathematical data associated with the adjustment of the tool to subsequent tools being used in the inspection. As a result, multiple steps in the program (which were previously required) are now unnecessary, making for a smarter, simpler inspection program. Thank you NeuroCheck 6.0!
