Machine vision is a dynamic field: STEMMER IMAGING and our suppliers are the world´s leading manufacturers for machine vision components and solutions, introducing many brand new developments several times a year.
The 28th VISION trade fair, November 6 to 8 2018 was a record event: Over 11,100 trade visitors came to Stuttgart to see the innovations of more than 460 exhibitors from all over the world. STEMMER IMAGING and its partners once again took centre stage at the world's leading trade fair for machine vision with the "STEMMER City" stand concept.
STEMMER IMAGING will be replicating a pick and place application by integrating industrial imaging capabilities into an Industry 4.0 environment using the new OPC UA communication standard. Also on show will be a 3D system using a machine learning method to read braille characters on boxes. In addition, 2D smart cameras and 2D vision sensors will be set up various configurations for OCR and code reading.
STEMMER IMAGING AG, one of Europe's leading machine vision technology providers, has signed an agreement with Odos Imaging for the distribution of Time-Of-Flight (TOF) 3D cameras. The cameras will be available through STEMMER IMAGING’s entire distribution network of 19 different countries in Europe. Odos Imaging is a Rockwell Automation company.
CVB 2018 brings a number of new developments for the CVB Image Manager and CVB Foundation Package components of Common Vision Blox, STEMMER IMAGING’s hardware-independent machine vision development software. In particular there is enhanced 3D functionality and increased Linux support.
Compact industrial vision systems provide a powerful embedded vision solution for high-speed inspection of multiple features of a part or assembly. A rugged industrial controller acquires, processes and analyses images from multiple cameras for applications such as final inspection of large assemblies. Designed specifically for use on the factory floor, the robust systems run embedded versions of PC machine vision software. This is a cost effective alternative approach to deploying standard PC solutions in harsh industrial environments.
In April, STEMMER IMAGING held its first CVB User Group Meeting at its headquarters in Puchheim near Munich. More than 50 registered participants had the opportunity to find out more about the latest developments in the Common Vision Blox (CVB) the machine vision programming library from STEMMER IMAGING. With over 80,000 deployed licenses, CVB is one of the most used software platforms for machine vision.
