Perfectly printed coins thanks to machine vision

The Hamburg Mint, one of the oldest mints in Germany, has been using machine vision since the early 2000s to automate various production steps, such as aligning of coins during packaging or various quality control tasks.
In the context of another project, we were confronted with the problem that the exact positioning of the coins during the printing process was very time-consuming. In close cooperation with the customer, a machine vision system has been developed over the last 10 months to automate this process and has been successfully proving itself in daily use since May
