VISION News 09 2019 powered by inspect


Dear Readers,

The machine vision landscape has already changed considerably in recent years due to powerful developments in the field of embedded vision - and it will continue to do so. What effects this will have was discussed by high-ranking participants at this year's EMVA business conference in Copenhagen in mid-May. Three board members of the VDMA machine vision division participated.

"Embedded vision will affect us all and become so ubiquitous that there is no way around it". The experts were in full agreement on this key message of the discussion: embedded vision is already so important in the industry today that no machine vision company can afford to exist without this technology and corresponding products in the near future. Read more about this here.

Also in the News: Accompanying the growth of the company, Ximea is strengthening its management by appointing Jürgen Hillmann as additional managing director. Continue here.

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

Best Regards,

Florian Niethammer
Project Manager VISION
