EMVA Business Conference
Adam Kingl to give Closing Keynote at EMVA Conference

In his current role as Executive Director of Thought Leadership for London Business School Executive Education Adam is sought for his expertise on the future of business. He leverages his research on the work and leadership paradigms of Generation Y, a demographic that will compose half of the global workforce by 2020, to shine a light on the fundamental paradigm shifts that we will face in terms of what’s important to the world of business and how it will be led.
Related to the future of business, companies are concerned about how they can innovate in order to be prepared for the seismic shifts they will face. Through this lens, Adam has a practical perspective on how to improve strategic or business model innovation, management innovation and to emphasise organisational and personal purpose in work-life.

In his keynote Adam will share his expertise and long year experience on the question how to attract, retain and manage generation Y.

Is there a need to completely change our management styles?
And how will leadership look like when generation Y professionals
get into leading positions?

Don’t miss it and register right now! !! More than 80 seats are already booked !!

Professionals from Europe and abroad are looking forward to the 2017 edition of the EMVA conference in Prague.

Taking place 22 – 24 June 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic, the EMVA conference again will be one of the top highlights for our industry in 2017.

Forum for Machine Vision & Optical Metrology at Control 2017
EMVA Control Vision Talks 2016 | 9 – 11 May | Stuttgart

At CONTROL 2017 the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) in partnership with trade show organizer P.E. Schall and supported by media partner inVISION will organize the EMVA Forum Control Vision Talks again.

Prominently located in hall 6 / booth 6529 the presentations of this forum aim to educate the trade show visitor on benefits, applications and methods of machine vision and optical metrology solutions for factory automation.

During the three first trade show days in total 36 talks being held in German or English language will present technology background as well as dedicated solutions going way beyond mere marketing-oriented product presentations. Towards this goal each of the days will feature presentations for a dedicated technology topic:

> World of 3D: From 6-DoF to Point Cloud | Tuesday
> Optical Metrology: Offline – At line – Inline | Wednesday
> Metrology throughout the whole spectrum: From Infrared to Hyperspectral | Thursday

Download the forum programme and schedule your visit to the 31. Control show
( free-of-charge ticket ).

CoaXpress 2.0 | When CoaXPress comes with 12.5 Gbit/s

Since it has been approved as an official standard in 2011, CoaXPress (abbreviated CXP) has gained a significant status in the machine vision ecosystem. Numerous compliant products (cameras, cables, frame grabbers, converters, repeaters…) are now available and adopted by machine makers and system integrators worldwide.
Moving forward, the CoaXPress workgroup is currently working on the next significant evolution of the standard, CoaXPress 2.0.

CoaXPress 2.0
The main factor driving the adoption of CoaXPress in the vision inspection machine market is the bandwidth that it provides, putting the next generation high resolution and high frame rate cameras within reach. Read more ›


Case Study

Machine vision provides defect-free aluminium containers

Image The Swiss company, Leuthold Mechanik AG (HLM) makes machines for manufacturing aluminium containers which, among other things, are used for packaging pet food and foodstuffs. A core element of quality assurance is machine vision by STEMMER IMAGING. Unremittingly, 120 times a minute over three shifts the ram on the press in the HLM Competence Centre rises and falls and after every stroke spits out four finished pet food containers. A machine like this thus produces 480 high quality aluminium containers per minute, which will later be filled with pet food.

There are several reasons for using aluminium as the material for such containers: For one, this material is gas-tight, which means that the contents can be stored for much longer. Furthermore, aluminium can be recycled and consequently is more sustainable than plastic, which is not gas-tight and also cannot be classed as harmless from a health point of view, due to the addition of plasticisers. The aluminium cans are also coated, so that the foodstuffs do not have any direct contact with the aluminium. Read more ›
