Machine Vision Products - STEMMER IMAGING



With Europe’s largest selection of leading machine vision technology


CCS was founded in Kyoto in 1993 and released its first LED light for the machine vision market in 1994. Since then, the company has expanded and now is one of the world’s largest suppliers of LED illumination with offices in Japan, China, Singapore, Belgium and the US.

CCS has always been a technology driven company and sets great store by research and development - filing over 270 lighting related patents worldwide, and constantly striving for better technological solutions.

In addition to LED illumination for the vision market, CCS produces illumination for other markets including biotechnology, medical technology, microscopy and consumer products.

CCS is unique in its philosophy and advocates a spirit of "love and appreciation for customers". In fact, the name CCS stands for 'Creating Customer Satisfaction' and reflects their engagement to ensure maximum customer satisfaction.

The product range includes components for diverse applications and illumination situations such as a large selection of ring lights, front and backlights based on different technologies.

All housings are made of aluminium, guaranteeing very good and effective heat dissipation. Most products are available in red, green, blue and white colour, some also in IR and UV. Other colours are available on request. In addition it is possible to connect each illuminator from the CCS range to a lighting or intensity controller.

Computational imaging improves imaging at source


Computational Imaging (CI) uses data extracted from a series of images acquired under different lighting or optical conditions to create an output image containing the details that are most important to a particular machine vision task. This approach offers powerful advantages over traditional one-shot imaging. It can improve the capability of a camera and reveal image detail not previously possible.

New machine vision front lights with camera window


CCS has introduced the TH2-CR series of flat light units with a camera window which provide light from the same axis as the camera. The wide emitting surface combines wide-field imaging with highly uniform illumination, making these new lights an attractive alternative to coaxial and dome lights.

New range of highly directional backlights for machine vision


Part of the new TH2 series of flat machine vision LEDs from CCS Inc, the high output TH2-PM family of backlights have been optimised to give highly directional illumination. This makes them ideally suited to dimensional measurements where accurate imaging of the outline of objects is needed and other transmission imaging applications.
