Machine Vision Products - STEMMER IMAGING



With Europe’s largest selection of leading machine vision technology


Since 1919 the Asahi Optical Co. has been producing optical components. In 1951 production of CCTV lenses was started, firstly under the brand name Cosmicar and later as Pentax.

Today, after many years of further development, these lenses are in use in numerous machine vision systems all over the world. Since 2011, the former Pentax Industrial Optical Systems Division is a part of the global Ricoh Group. The machine vision lenses are now marketed under the brand name Ricoh, but are technically identical.

With the inclusion into the Ricoh Group, the division now benefits from the development potential and product portfolio of the entire Ricoh Group.

Four stages of machine vision in industry


Machine vision is a well-established technique across a host of industries, improving quality and efficiency in the manufacturing and processing sectors. Its ability to make inspections reliably and at speed 24/7 makes it an invaluable enabling technology in quality control. Technological advances in machine vision continue to be made rapidly, opening up more and more possibilities.

The role of machine vision in manufacturing


Machine vision already makes an important contribution to the manufacturing sector, primarily by providing automated inspection capabilities as part of QC procedures. However, the world of automation is becoming increasingly complex. Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning and many other technologies present users and developers of vision systems with big challenges in the selection of the ideal system for their respective application.

Ricoh high-performance 5 Megapixel lens range extended


Ricoh has added the new FL-CC-MX series to its existing range of lenses for 2/3” 5 megapixel cameras. These high-performance lenses with 12 and 16mm focal length versions provide high resolution, high contrast imaging with low distortion across the entire sensor, ensuring accurate measurements at the periphery of the image as well as at the centre.
