Skills Gap in Automated Manufacturing Facilities

Cognex Training Upskills Engineers

With the rapid growth in industrial automation, many manufacturers recognise the need to upskill their internal team in the use of machine vision and ID applications.

Cognex Training has been developed to meet the needs of our clients, with a view to offering world-class practical training in the management of Cognex systems. Cognex is a global leader in vision technologies and manufacturing automation and, VisionID has established itself as a Cognex’ leading provider in the Irish marketplace.

We have created three training courses, each of which are delivered by certified and highly experienced industry professionals.

Cognex DataMan Training

If you have recently invested in DataMan products and you want to get the most from them, or you have engineers or operatives at your facility that need to be trained in the use of this technology, our half day Cognex Datamax course is an ideal solution. There is a large variety of machine readable codes in use and some can cause verification challenges.

DataMan readers are leaders in their class and students are taught the basics of using handheld and fixed mount readers. Students are also introduced to the setup tool which is used to configure the hardware. The training includes demonstrations of DataMan products in use and how configurations can be backed-up and saved for future use. This is a short but highly practical course which will make it easy for participants to work effectively with Cognex DataMan products at your facility.

Cognex In-Sight Easy Builder Training

Our Cognex In-Sight Easy Builder course is ideal for new In-Sight users and it takes students through a simple four step programme to introduce them to using In-Sight to configure a vision application. This comprehensive introduction includes the initial steps needed to connect to the In-Sight Camera and, the use of various tools such as the Location Tools, the Inspection Tools and the Identification and Filter Tools. In the afternoon, participants are taught how to configure results and how to put the In-Sight Vision system online.

Cognex In-Sight Spreadsheet Training

This hands-on, two-day Cognex In-Sight spreadsheet course introduces students to In-Sight Explorer, the PC software platform that interfaces with In-Sight cameras. The course uses theoretical and practical lessons to show students how to get connected initially, how to use some of the key tools and how to review error handling and calibrations. The second day focuses on communications with other devices and the Labs give students the chance to experience working in the In-Sight spreadsheet programming environment.
