Machine Vision Products Inc. has been granted a U.S. patent for the company's computer integrated manufacturing control and information system. The system allows manufacturers to monitor their processes in real time. Should the process become unstable or begin operating outside the required parameters, the system will send a signal that the monitored process is out of control and that corrective action must be taken. The system's capabilities include machine and line management, setup verification, feeder tracking and material management control.
