Dear readers,

Finally the time has come: The jury of the inspect award 2021 has nominated ten candidates each in the categories "Vision" and "Automation + Control" and the voting is now open until 16 October 2020, so vote at www.inspect-award.com and choose the best machine vision product. Three Amazon vouchers worth 50 euros each will be raffled among all participants. Taking part is worthwhile. Read more about it here.

Also in the News: Vision is cancelled in 2020. This was announced by the organiser, Landesmesse Stuttgart. "In the discussions held it became apparent that Vision cannot be held this year with the usual quality, particularly due to the high international character of the event combined with the continuing travel restrictions", reports Florian Niethammer, Project Manager of Vision. Find out more here.

This month, the spotlight is on products from MVtec and CreaformThey are definitely worth a look.

Best Regards,

Florian Niethammer
Project Manager VISION
