Intelitek Debut New Machine Vision Training Program and Certification Based on Cognex at ACTE’s CareerTech Vision 2018

New machine vision and quality control training program delivers skills-based training and blended learning programs to prepare students for in-demand professions in the manufacturing industry

Intelitek, a leader in CTE education worldwide is announcing the release of their new “Machine Vision Technology with Cognex” training program at ACTE’s CareerTech Vision 2018, running November 28-December 1, in San Antonio, Texas. The program, developed by Intelitek (Booth #900), is based on the Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX) vision technology. Cognex is a global leader in the machine vision field and the training features Cognex specific training and Cognex Certification for high school, community college, technical school and university students.

Cognex logoCognex Corporation designs, develops, manufactures, and markets a range of products that Machine vision is smart automation technology that uses cameras and software to provide the image interpretation and visual feedback needed for parts inspection, robotic guidance and industrial automation. The technology has become a critical part of the current industrial revolution (known as Industry 4.0. – the fourth industrial revolution), and it is deployed by logistics companies, manufacturers and machine builders in order to cut costs, improve efficiencies and maximize throughput.

The training program includes a virtual component titled “Machine Vision and Image Processing” and a lab-based component titled “Machine Vision and Quality Control”. Both the components use Cognex technology, Cognex In-Sight Explorer software and Cognex vision sensors. By completing these training programs and taking a test, Students can obtain industry-recognized certification based on the skills they gain with the Cognex solution. The training program will simulate a real-world workplace in the manufacturing industry where students will be expected to use cameras or a sensor to determine if a part was manufactured correctly.

“A lot of students are trying to gain industry knowledge before graduating, and since Cognex is an industry leader in machine vision, we worked with them to develop this Cognex certification geared toward education,” said Ido Yerushalmi, CEO of Intelitek. “They’ll have experience with our industrial robots, the CNC machines and the course also simulates a real manufacturing floor. This is something students can put on their resume, and it will give them a leg up on the competition when they’re looking for a job after graduation.”

The “Machine Vision Technology with Cognex” training program will be available for schools to purchase January 1, 2019.
