EMVA Business Conference
Sony Kapoor to give Opening Keynote at EMVA Conference

In his current role as Managing Director of the international think tank
Re-Define Sony advises key policymakers in the EU and in emerging economies. He also runs Court Jesters, a boutique consultancy that specialises in tackling groupthink in corporate boards and investment committees.
In addition, he is a member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on the Future of Asset Management and Insurance. Part of his current work focuses on the future of technology and its interplay with productivity and future of labour.

In his keynote Sony takes the challenge to look at Europe’s economical development under the actually volatile conditions. The UK declares Brexit giving example for other regions and states within Europe strengthening separation trends. And across the Atlantic the Trump administration introduces a new style of leading the United States.

How will this reflect Europe’s economies and industries?
Do we find some answers enabling us to consider adjustments and to be prepared?

Don’t miss it and register right now!

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.

New conference format “Industrial Vision Conference” with EMVA support

EMVA has been cooperation partner of the 1. Industrial Vision Conference from 8-9 March in Ludwigsburg/Germany with well over fifty conference participants. The two-day conference put a focus on application driven machine vision tasks and problems and was moderated by Prof. Dr. Michael Heizman, Head of the Institue for Industrial Information Technology (IIIT) at the KIT in Karlsruhe.
Speakers and participants came from industrial customers of vision technology as well as from vision manufacturer and research side. A keynote was given by Harald Strehle from Daimler AG addressing the demands placed on machine vision systems from the perspective of a car manufacturer. Other focal topics with several high-level presentations each were “methods of image acquisition”, “sensor technology and hardware components”, and “methods of quality control”. The conference closed with a session on machine vision and safety which included a panel discussion on the status quo of safety and security in machine vision addressing future topics such as data safety and safety at work, secure human-robot collaboration, and monitoring of sensitive production areas.

EMVA 1288 Course Standard 3.1 –
Foundations, Usage, and Applications


FRAMOS, Taufkirchen-Germany, 28 – 29 June 2017
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Bernd Jähne

Does this sound familiar to you? You would like to objectively compare cameras and find out which camera fits best into your application. Unfortunately, data sheets more than often are not
compatible with each other and thus you are forced to conduct your own cumbersome investigations. Read more ›

Case Study

Maximum Performance Thanks to Additional Height Monitoring

Image scanware electronic GmbH in Bickenbach, Germany, develops and manufactures inspection systems for the 3D quality control of pharmaceutical products during the packing process. Nowadays, 2D cameras are no longer up to the inspection tasks set by packaging machine manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies. That’s why, for ten years now, scanware has relied on the high-resolution, versatile Ranger 3D vision camera from SICK when it comes to developing custom solutions. Read more ›

ZEISS – Out of the environmental lab and into the world

Image ZEISS lenses need to operate perfectly in extreme conditions, withstanding everything from scorching heat and bitter cold to sandstorms and severe vibrations. At its test laboratory in Oberkochen, Germany, ZEISS conducts comprehensive experiments to see how ZEISS lenses respond under these conditions, and to more extreme external influences. The following video shows how ZEISS researchers systematically submit lenses to extreme stresses in order to arrive at findings that can help in future lens design and development.
