Machine Vision

Vision and Control Systems (VCS) engineers bring decades of experience to solve machine vision applications of any scale or complexity.  Our machine vision expertise spans applications in quality inspection, part assembly, precision measurement of tolerances of a part, robot guidance, 3D inspection, linescan imaging, deep learning algorithms, OCR/OCV, high-speed image acquisition, and SWIR imaging.  VCS backs all of these applications and the ability to take your inspection project from concept to a full-turn key system.

From simple presence/absence detection, to smart camera applications and the most sophisticated 3D vision-guided robotic platforms and beyond, VCS understands your unique needs.

Whether the metric for your success is improved traceability, repeatability, yield, or quality, Vision and Control Systems has the technical and application know-how to deliver a robust solution to your inspection requirements.


How We Work

Our knowledgeable engineers put you on the path to automated machine vision success by helping you define it.  Before the first machine vision component is specified, we evaluate your product and process to determine what level of guidance you need to navigate the early stages of application development. In some cases, on-site evaluations are the best way forward. In others, large data image sets are enough for system design. VCS’ experience solving industrial machine vision challenges uniquely positions us to provide early stage guidance to customers, which helps reduce development time and costs.

After we agree on a proposed solution, we fully test and optimize your machine vision system to ensure that it will meet or exceed your expected return on investment.  And we don’t go far after installation.  VCS provides on-site and cost-effective remote technical support, maintenance, and training, as you require.

Whether it’s a greenfield new system design or installation, a retrofit in the toughest conditions, or a fix to an existing machine vision solution that is underperforming, VCS makes machine vision work for you.


Our Partners

VCS solutions are customer-focused and technology agnostic, though the depth of our machine vision expertise is evident in whom we work with.  In addition to being a Platinum Level Partner System Integrator (PSI), fully trained and authorized on Cognex InSight, VisionPro, and Designer platforms, VCS offers integration and programming support for industry leaders such as Keyence, Sick, LMI, FANUC, and Dalsa.

As certified integrators for FANUC and Universal Robot, our expertise with both machine vision and robots makes Vision and Control Systems the perfect company to assist you on solutions that require vision and robots working seamlessly together.  For 2D or 3D vision guided robotic systems, we have the experience precisely finding the part with vision and efficiently transforming the position data to an number of different types of robots.  VCS has also provided many customers inspection stations that use the flexibility and speed of a robot positioning a 2D camera or 3D sensor head in inspect the quality and tolerances of a part.

Familiar with these and many other proven hardware suppliers, VCS engineers fully test and optimize your machine vision system to ensure that it performs to your specifications. The breadth of our expertise allows us to bring the resources and know-how to meet and exceed virtually any challenge in machine vision.

VCS services and support cover the U.S. East Coast and beyond, with locations based near New York City and the Southeast’s emerging automation hub in South Carolina. We welcome customers to visit our locations at any time for planning, progress updates, and training. With VCS, you’re never far from your partner in automation solutions.
