Dear Readers,

Johannes Meyer won with his work on Light Field Methods for the Visual Inspection of Transparent Objects the EMVA Young Professional Award 2019. The winner was introduced on May 18 at the 17th EMVA Business Conference in Copenhagen / Denmark and was given the opportunity to present his work to the conference participants. What exactly it contains can be found here.

In addition, Stemmer Imaging acquired the Spanish Infaimon S.L., a supplier of software and hardware for the field of industrial vision and robotics. According to agreement, Stemmer Imaging will pay a low double-digit million euro amount to acquire one hundred percent of the shares in the group. More here.

Highlights of the week come from Aerotech, Matrix Vision and Edmund Optics. They are definitely worth a look.
