Cognex In-Sight 3800 vision system

The Cognex In-Sight 3800 is an all-in-one vision system designed to solve all of your vision needs.

One of the fastest systems available on the market, the In-Sight 3800 offers high speed, high resolution, and high flexibility.

With the ability to classify items, track barcodes and read text more than 30 times every second in a single inspection, the applications are almost endless.

How could your processes benefit from high-speed vision?

Possible applications

From EV battery inspection and gasket quality checks in the automotive sector, to high speed label reading and classification of consumer packaged goods, if you can think of an application, the 3800 can probably do it.

In the pharmaceutical and medical industries applications include vaccine label inspection. In the food and drink sector the 3800 is capable of high speed barcode and expiration date reading.

In electronics assembly, the 3800 can detect the presence or absence of components and count small elements such as cable pins.
