Dear …,

Welcome to the EMVA newsletter! Each month it provides hands-on information on machine vision in Europe and the world. Find out about the latest projects of the EMVA, innovative products, what’s going on in the machine vision industry and interesting events.

EMVA Season’s Greetings

Again our industry looks back on a very successful year. All market data indicators point into the direction of 2017 being a record year in machine vision sales and the growth rate to 2016 surely will reflect this. And despite of complex topics to be solved in the political arena there are no serious signals that the continious growth of the vision industry would drop in 2018.

In the same way the EMVA had an exciting year 2017 with a mixture of very well known but also with brand new activities. With the Embedded VISION Europe conference for the first time we adressed this important technology in Europe. We thank the 200+ attendees for their interest, our conference speakers, the exhibitors and last but not least our cooperation partner Messe Stuttgart.

EMVA events are setting benchmarks in take-home-value and networking. In 2018 we will continue to offer a wide range of attractive events to the vision community and the users of our technology. Visit and stay informed.

We look forward to meet you and your colleagues at one or more of our highlight events throughout the year.

On behalf of the EMVA Board of Directors and the whole EMVA team I wish you and your family peaceful holidays and a prosperous New Year.

Thomas Lübkemeier
Kind regards,
Thomas Lübkemeier
EMVA General Secretary



EMVA Forum
‘Control Vision Talks’ at CONTROL 2018

The Control show organiser and the EMVA are going to continue their partnership around the 32nd Control in 2018.

Forum for Machine Vision & Optical Metrology at Control 2018

At Control 2018 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.
After successful editions in 2016 and 2017 the high level of attendance and the very postive feedback from speakers motivated the organising partners to continue this machine vision specific forum at the upcomming Control show in April 2018.
The ‘Call for Presentations’ meanwhile has been closed and the forum program is in preparation. Read more ›

Seminar ‘Advanced Digital Image Processing’

This course familiarizes the audience with the understanding, design, and implementation of advanced algorithms used in digital image processing such as contrast enhancement, sharpening, noise reduction, resizing for image printing and display, deblurring (restoration), super-resolution, and image understanding. Most of the required background such as filtering and convolution and frequency representation are reviewed very briefly but the main focus is on advanced algorithms, where the majority of the class time is allocated.

Case Study

Timken India maximizes customer satisfaction with automated part inspection system

The Timken Company manufactures bearings, gear drives, belts, and chains to production of a range of diverse products, including automobiles. At Timken India Limited’s facility in Bangalore, hundreds of thousands of tapered roller bearings are manufactured each day. During production, a small but significant percentage of bearings can escape the manufacturing line with defects. Learn how the Timken improved its quality-control using an automated inspection system designed by Qualitas with Teledyne DALSA’s Sherlock software. Read more ›

New 50 mm Fixed Focal Lens for Latest Machine Vision Sensors

Image With this latest addition of the HF50XA-5M, the Fujinon HF-5M series now consists of seven high performance fixed focal length lenses with C mount and focal lengths between 8 mm and 50 mm. The new lens HF50XA-5M broadens the range at the upper edge of the focal length.
For imagers of up to 2/3” optical format, these lenses show a consistent resolution power of 3.45 µm and below from the center to the corners even when the aperture is wide open under low light conditions as well as over changing working distances. This corresponds to a pixel count of 5 megapixels, as provided by many widely adopted CCD imagers and new image sensors with CMOS global shutter technology.
