SPS IPC Drives 2015 with new records

With 64,386 visitors and 1,666 exhibitors SPS IPC Drives 2015 reaches new records. From 24 – 26 November also several EMVA members presented their latest innovations in products and services at the trade floor in Nuremberg, Germany.

Machine Vision plays an important role in the automation world and as such continiously gains presence and visibility at the show – and this not restricted to the traditional vision suppliers. Having received a first positive feedback from EMVA members confirming the growing interest in machine vision obviously the real business results will be evaluated by the exhibitors in the coming weeks” said Thomas Lübkemeier, EMVA General Secretary.

Case Study

Application Food Logistics „at its best“ –
Logistic Automation with Imaging

Price competition in the food trade is extremely tough. This is why efficient processes play an important role, and logistics is no exception. FRAMOS worked with a major food retailer to automate its central warehouse. FRAMOS solutions were installed at various processing stations, using traditional imaging processing, self-learning algorithms and classifiers to ensure robust and smooth operation. For example this enables the systems in the ‘empty containers centre’, to recognise different container types and select the correct process path. This recognition is possible even if they are covered in dirt or partially occluded by large labels. Case Study
A supermarket chain in Switzerland is currently using FRAMOS expertise, ‘FRAMOS Sorting Intelligence’ along-side its own system configurations to perform four different sorting and recognition tasks. These are part of the delivery chain within its logistics centre. These provide an insight into the benefits Imaging can provide to all retail and mail order sectors as optimising logistics is essential to lower costs, increase throughput and increase reliability.
