National Instruments UK & Ireland has announced that Don Braggins, Director of the UK Industrial Vision Association (UKIVA) and Executive Committee Member of the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) will present the Keynote at the NI Automation and Vision Forum that takes place at NI's premises in Newbury, Berkshire, on Thursday 4 December 2008.
Entitled Machine Vision Takes Its Place in the Automation Engineer's Toolbox, Braggins' Keynote will examine the evolution of industrial machine vision and the productivity gains it brings to automation engineers today.
The NI Automation and Vision Forum is a free-of-charge conference for engineers and scientists, providing hands-on sessions and technical presentations from market leaders including Alrad, Firstsight Vision (which is to be renamed Stemmer Imaging From 1 January 2009) and National Instruments.
Attendees will learn how to optimise automation and vision applications with programmable automation controllers (PACs), harnessing their measurement, analysis, connectivity and advanced control features to:
- Improve yields and quality
- Enhance throughput and efficiency
- Improve equipment uptime and availability
National Instruments will also discuss how graphical system design enables a broader range of engineers to tackle difficult control and automation problems, thereby reducing cost and improving performance. Two tracks of sessions will cover machine vision, industrial control and automation, and there will also be a hands-on track.
