inspect news 03 2017


Dear readers,

Golden Globe, Academy Award, Goldene Kamera - in the industrial vision community, these prizes count nothing. If you won it, you might be able to tell a nice anecdote of Ryan Gosling or Emma Stone at the buffet, but not more. Significantly more prestigious is the inspect award, which will be awarded again this year. Producers in the fields of vision, automation or control are now called upon to submit their products. We are also pleased to recommend a product.

From all applications a jury will select and nominate the products for the final election. More than 45,000 readers of the print issues inspect and messtec drives Automation and of the related online-communities of inspect, messtec drives Automation and PRO-4-PRO are then asked to vote for the winners.

Closing date for registration and upload is on March 31, 2017. We look forward to your submissions.

We would also like to present three products worth a look. Lumenera has launched a new 29 megapixel camera, Baumer introduces new LX VisualApplets 3D cameras for high-performance laser triangulation, and Flir introduces a new high-speed HD thermal imaging camera.

Have fun reading

Andreas Grösslein
