EMVA Business Conference 2018
‘Early Bird’ registration is open

Image The 16th editition of EMVA’s annual highlight event will take place 7-9 June 2018 at Hotel Dubrovnik Palace, Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Every year the EMVA brings together business leaders and
technical experts within the machine vision industry from Europe and around the world with a well-balanced mixture of high-level speeches and networking opportunities.

The conference covers the different business segments Management, Technology, Innovation, Markets and Marketing and it offers outstanding networking opportunities. We go the step further by providing the necessary organisation and infrastructure for pre-scheduled bilateral meetings matching the individual attendee’s needs!.

Benefit from the reduced early bird fees and register right now at

Technical Optics for Imaging Processing

The aim of this course is to provide the required understanding and knowledge in technical optics for an audience with general knowledge in image processing.

A puzzling variety of optical components are available to acquire images. Often the required knowledge is not available to use these components in an optimal way for a given application.

Register for the seminar organised by EMVA member FRAMOS and held by Prof. Dr. Bernd Jähne 7th December 2017. Read more ›

EMVA congratulates:
20 years of Baumer machine vision


This November, Baumer Optronic GmbH in Radeberg will celebrate its 20th anniversary. Founded in the 1990s by Dr. Oliver Vietze who at that time was pioneering in the field of CMOS image sensor research, under his aegis the former locally-acting company with an initial team of 35 employees has evolved to the present 147-person Vision Competence Center of the Baumer Group and a global player in the field of industrial image processing.

Case Study

Passive laser beam analyser for CO2 lasers

ImageHaas Laser Technologies, Inc. has developed a compact, all passive optical design laser beam analyser for focused laser beams from a CO2 laser with wavelength range from 9.3 to 10.6 μm. The Haas laser beam analyser provides real time M² (M-Squared or beam propagation factor [VAN]), spot size, astigmatism, beam divergence, Rayleigh length and focal position values. Read more ›

The easy and cost-efficient way to master complex tasks in image processing

Image With new SmartApplets, Baumer is the first camera manufacturer to introduce an innovative concept to quickly and easily increase the application-specific functionalities of cameras with FPGA-based image processing. SmartApplets can be conveniently transferred to the LX VisualApplets cameras by means of a firmware update so the camera is immediately ready for use. As a result, even non-expert users benefit from ready-to-operate solutions for common tasks in image processing without the need to build up special know-how in FPGA programming. Read more ›

CHROMASENS sets sights on wide field of view 3D Machine Vision applications

ImageChromasens has extended its popular 3DPIXA family of high-performance 3D line scan cameras with a new model that provides a wider field-of-view for complete scans of large, complex and irregularly-shaped objects or textures.

Chromasens’ newest camera, the 3DPIXA dual 200 µm HR, is designed for high-speed 3D inspection tasks requiring a maximum field-of-view of 1400mm (55 inches) . Read more ›

COGNEX Explorer Real Time Monitoring optimizes productivity for factory automation

Image Cognex Corporation announced the release of Cognex Explorer™ Real Time Monitoring (RTM) for factory automation and logistics operations. RTM aggregates and reports trends in data captured by DataMan® barcode readers and provides instant facility-wide feedback to identify process errors, minimize no-reads, and maximize throughput.

RTM tracks trends in barcode quality, monitors configuration changes, and analyzes data from every DataMan barcode reader to quickly identify the causes of low read rates and other errors that threaten the efficiency of an operation. Read more ›

FUJIFILM – Benefits of Optical Image Stabilization

Image Even small vibrations of the mounting point of zoom lenses can lead to very shaky and often unusable video captures. To be on the save side, high-performance image stabilization is key to compensate such vibrations.
Vibrations influencing a camera and zoom-lens installation may derive from heavy engines in a building, ship or other vehicles. They can also be induced by bypassing railway trains or strong, low-frequency sound sources in factory environments or even just strong winds. Software based stabilization might sound like a good hands-on solution. However, Optical Image Stabilization from FUJINON has multiple advantages over electronic/software based approaches:

SONY® Semiconductor Solutions launches its 3rd generation image sensors, IMX421 and IMX422, for high-speed automation


Sony features its high-performance 3rd generation CMOS Global Shutter with the brand-new IMX421 and IMX422 image sensors. Both of these two high-speed sensors for Machine Vision and Factory Automation come with a pixel size of 4.5µm for high sensitivity and low noise. The IMX422 achieves a frame rate of more than 434 fps at 10bit pixel depth, providing a square pixel array of 1/1.7” and 2 Megapixel resolution. The IMX421 achieves a frame rate of up to 371 fps implementing a 2/3” format and 2.8 Megapixel resolution.

ZEISS introduces new focal lengths for industrial lenses

Image ZEISS is launching five new focal lengths for industrial applications: the ZEISS Interlock 1.4/50, 1.4/85, 1.4/25,1.4/35 and 2/35.
These extremely high-speed lenses feature quick shutter speeds, which often increases process efficiency.
For example: these lenses can speed up quality control by up to 30%. “We are expanding our lens family with these new, extremely powerful industrial lenses, and are offering a broad portfolio for different applications with a total of eleven different focal lengths.
This is a real boon for our customers,” says Till W. Bleibaum from ZEISS. Read more ›
