Machine Vision Products - STEMMER IMAGING



With Europe’s largest selection of leading machine vision technology


Since being founded in 1985, Z-Laser has been an innovative manufacturer of intelligent laser technologies in the fields of metrology, industrial machine vision, positioning, and medical technology.

Z-Laser's products are exclusively developed and manufactured in Freiburg Germany and serve as illumination for high quality 2D and 3D camera based applications as well as a visual positioning aid in many industries. Besides high-performance and industry proven IP67 rated lasers, the company also offers computer based laser projector systems. Working in close collaboration with customers Z-Laser also undertake customised OEM solutions on request.

Z-Laser's lasers for machine vision applications include the following features:

  • Line lasers with wavelengths from 405 nm to 830 nm
  • Optical output from 1 mW up to 6,000 mW
  • A variety of projection patterns such as homogeneous lines, multi-lines, grid and dot patterns
  • Manually focusable
  • TTL modulation up to 500 kHz and external intensity control
  • Fibre-coupled high-end lasers with line width of < 10 µm
  • Integrated microcontrollers for intensity stabilisation and performance monitoring




As many lasers used in machine vision exceed laser protection class 1, we recommend the use of protective goggles for any laser application. Please feel free to contact us for advice.
