As part of our commitment to our customers, Firstsight Vision believes that it is important to give the customer free training, allowing them to get their system up and running as quickly as possible. Regular training seminars are run at the Firstsight Vision offices, and at at various other venues. This page will be updated regularly with current and future dates so you will always be able to fit your training to your schedule.

The seminars will cover the basics of the setup, configuration and running of a smart system. You will be introduced to the basics of machine vision, the hardware used, an introduction to the system and some real world application experience. As an attendee, you are are encouraged to bring actual parts or components, both good and bad for evaluation.

The Firstsight Vision 'Machine Vision Workshop Days' are generally held the first Tues/Wed of the month.

Lighting and Lenses

The key to deploying reliable vision system is getting the lighting and lensing right. A difficult application can be made easy just by selecting an appropriate illumination solution. This training seminar takes delegates through the most common lighting configurations and demonstrates how lighting and lensing can deliver results. Advanced lighting is also discussed such as UV and IR technology and all delegates get access to FirstSight Vision’s lighting lab where samples can be evaluated to identify the best way to illuminate a sample.

Sherlock - Easy to use Vision Software

Sherlock is an easy to use and powerful machine vision development environment. Launched in the early 1990's it has evolved to be one of the most deployed vision systems available. Although easy to use, to get the most from the product we recommend all users of Sherlock to attend this seminar. This training course introduces delegates to the philosophy behind the product and interface and how to build applications using the many tools available via the point and click user interface. Advanced features are also covered including how to build a custom user interface, write advanced inspection scripts and finally how to add your own code with Sherlock Plug-ins.

Common Vision Blox Common Vision Blox is an open architecture Machine Vision programming toolkit for Integrators and OEMs. It is expected that delegates have a basic understanding of programming prior to attending. The seminar covers the philosophy behind CVB and how to most efficiently build applications using the toolkit. An overview of the functionality of the tools as well as more in-depth training on the high level tools, such as MINOS and MANTO, that are unique to CVB. To get the most out of this highly powerful product we recommend all programmers looking to use CVB should attend. 6th June 2007
Introduction to Machine Vision This course is aimed at people who are new to machine vision and want to understand what can be done with machine vision. Using a point-and-click vision system delegates are taken through each of the basic machine vision tools to understand how they work and what they can deliver. We discuss the differences between different types of vision system such as smart cameras, compact vision systems and PC based solutions and conclude with a sample testing session where delegates can work with our engineers to undertake evaluations of applications bought to the event. 4th July 2007
