Machine Vision Products - STEMMER IMAGING



With Europe’s largest selection of leading machine vision technology


STEMMER IMAGING has been one of the leaders in the machine vision market since 1987. It is one of Europe's largest technology providers in this field. In 1997 STEMMER IMAGING presented Common Vision Blox (CVB), a powerful programming library for fast and reliable development and implementation of vision solutions, which has been deployed successfully throughout the world in more than 80,000 imaging applications in various industries.

Due to the long-term practical experience in a variety of industries STEMMER IMAGING knows exactly the crucial factors for the successful and efficient solution of applications.

Based on this background STEMMER IMAGING developed the platform-independent machine vision software library Common Vision Blox (CVB). Thanks to its enormous versatility and flexibility, CVB is one of the most powerful software libraries available for the development of image processing applications. The developers can chose from a variety of tools such as search tools, tools for OCR and barcode identification, for gauging, surface inspection and many more.


3D object recognition tool enables the localisation of 3D objects described by a CAD file in point clouds and determines the positions of the objects found.

CVS Trevista FLAT

Flexible surface inspections units with a flat illumination system and integrated light controller for easy integration of ‘shape from shading’ inspection.

CVB Spectral

CVB Spectral is a tool for the acquisition and basic processing of hyperspectral data.

Machine vision opens up new markets


Over the years, "machine vision" has become a well-established term describing the technology's main area of application in the manufacturing industry. However, the components and systems originally developed for the industrial sector are increasingly being used in non-industrial applications.

STEMMER IMAGING announces major updates to CVB machine vision programming library


The release of CVB 2019 introduces new APIs to provide an innovative way of developing machine vision solutions with Common Vision Blox, together with an impressive range of new tools. These tools provide functionality for hyperspectral and polarisation imaging, as well as OPC UA machine to machine communication capability for Industry 4.0 requirements. In addition it is now possible to develop machine learning solutions on embedded platforms. Object recognition speeds have been greatly increased, as have video sequence recording speeds.
