EMVA Season Greetings

A year ago at this point the international start of vaccination against the Corona virus promissed the end of pandemica to be quite near. Seems we all are still learning.

Nevertheless there have been a lot of very attractive activities throughout the year 2021, many of them performed in a virtual format like EMVA’s Spotlight Series, but also first opportunities for in-person events were offered.
For our industry of course the Vision show was the annual highlight. With Stuttgart as location and taking place in early October the show exactly hit the right place and time.
Even under the given restrictions in regards to socialising and evening events it was so exciting to get together again – from exhibitor’s as well as from visitor’s perspective.

As EMVA we could manage to continue on our growth of membership, driving forward the work on global machine vision standards and providing interesting vision tech content e.g. at our online EMVA Business Conference Special Edition 2021.
For the first time ever a new EMVA Board of Directors got elected in a virtual General Assembly.

EMVA’s quarterly survey on machine vision sales in and to Europe after three quarters clearly points towards a two-digit growth compared to 2020. The supplier expectations for the next six month still suffer strong volatility, also pushed by the difficult supply chain situation.

Despite of the still challenging situation we are looking forward to the events in 2022 beneficial for our vision community as well as for the users of our technology:

  • EMVA Business Conference in Brussels, Belgium (May)
  • Vision show in Stuttgart, Germany (October), including EMVA’s International Vision Night and the special booth on machine vision satandards
  • European Machine Vision Forum in Cork, Ireland (November)

We would be excited to meet you and your colleagues at our highlights throughout the year.

The EMVA Board of Directors and the whole EMVA team wishes you and your family peaceful holidays and a prosperous New Year.

Take care and stay well!

3D Time-of-Flight Camera Aids Robotic Palletizers

Loading or unloading pallets efficiently with the help of robots requires an automated system to carry diverse loads of pallets with diverse shapes and sizes to be handled with precision and care at fast cycle times. Layers of the pallets are not guaranteed to be flat, may contain bulky objects or may arrive slanted, putting the layers on the pallet at a slope. Regardless of the palletizing method, the goal of any supply chain operation is to ship out the most product possible. This can only be done by making the best use of the space on each individual pallet, even if it means just one more package per pallet.

Germany-based companies MSB Düren and codesolo GmbH use a conveyor system where the pallets need to be placed in a structured and precise manner with the help of a robot. For this purpose, a robot operates several pallet towers.  Read more ›

S162170 Shows its Superior Performance in Mobile Phone Appearance Inspection

In order to solve problems on the Inspection process of new-generation mobile phones, a new model Sizector®3D Camera S162170 has been released, specializing in various inspection projects of Mobile Phone Cover, Middle Plate and Middle Bezel.
After mobile phones entered the era of full screen, all major brands chose the design of extreme thin mobile phone frame to visually present the non-frame effect. It undoubtedly puts forward higher requirements for the production process of mobile phones at all stages. Fortunately, the consumer electronics manufacturing industry represented by the manufacturing industry chain of mobile devices (including smartphones, tablets and other terminals) has a more mature and comprehensive supply chain system than other industries.
