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.

Together we are facing a truly unprecedented situation. The global coronavirus pandemic is affecting all our families, our businesses, our communities and our way of life.

First and foremost, our thoughts are with all those who are directly or indirectly affected by the virus, especially those who are ill, to whom we wish with all our hearts a full and speedy recovery. We also recognize the many selfless healthcare professionals around the world who are working tirelessly at the forefront of this pandemic to care for those whose need is greatest.

We would like to take this opportunity to inform you that the entire EMVA team is strongly encouraged to work from home. This transition is working relatively smoothly and we continue to offer the highest levels of performance and availability. Although we continue to move into uncharted territory, the EMVA can assure you that we will endeavor to maintain all the essential functions and services of the association and continue to support our members throughout this period.

Thomas Lübkemeier
Kind regards,
Thomas Lübkemeier
EMVA General Secretary


Control Show in Stuttgart cancelled
EMVA’s Control Vision Talks and upcoming exam for EMVA1288 Certificate are cancelled

Image Due to the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic the 2020 edition of the Control Show in Stuttgart, Germany, was cancelled by the trade show organizer.

The EMVA in partnership with trade show organizer P.E. Schall and supported by media partner inVISION thanks all companies/speaker who submitted their talks for the active contribution.
We look forward to the next edition of the forum during the Control show 2021.


Consequently also the next exam for EMVA1288 Cerification on User and Expert Level, originally scheduled to take place during the Control show, will not be offered.
As soon as the situation allows realistic schedules new dates for the exam will be announced here in EMVA’s monthly newsletter as well as at ›

EMVA Business Conference 2020

Image Several activities of the EMVA are currently affected by the current uncertain situation due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. The 18th EMVA Business Conference 2020, 25 – 27 June in Sofia, Bulgaria, is directly affected by this at the moment, although its programme is almost complete (

At the time of this newsletter, it would not be possible to hold the conference, nor would it be reasonably possible to carry it out. However, EMVA is in constant contact with the responsible authorities, so that we can react immediately to changes in the situation. We intend to inform prior to April 4th, whether the EMVA Business Conference will be cancelled, postponed or being held in an alternative form.

Case Study

IDS – Avoiding product mix-ups
Automated, GAMP-compliant production monitoring in the pharmaceutical industry


Digitalisation does not stop at the pharmaceutical industry. The use of new technologies opens up opportunities for process optimisation along the entire life cycle of pharmaceuticals and pharmaceutical products, from research into new active substances and therapies to production, packaging, distribution and application. However, digital innovation not only offers many opportunities, but also poses major challenges for the industry due to the strong regulation of drug production. Because anyone who violates guidelines when developing drugs or medical devices not only puts a lot of money and his reputation at risk, but also the health of the patient. This makes it all the more important for companies to have access to reliable systems that support them in complying with legal requirements such as Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP).

10 GigE cameras with 3rd generation Sony Pregius CMOS sensors

Image Greater sensitivity, improved image quality, and frame rates of more than 1500 fps – six new LXT cameras with resolutions from 0.5 to 7.1 megapixels combine 3rd generation Sony Pregius CMOS sensors with 10 GigE, thus allowing considerable performance improvements. With a pixel size of 4.5 or 9 µm, the cameras offer very high sensitivity. This way, they provide better support for applications with a short exposure time or NIR illumination, for example. The exceptionally high image quality with an SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) of 44 dB (pixel size 4.5 µm) facilitates stable image evaluation even under difficult conditions, e.g., applications with a very high light intensity such as laser welding or in sports and motion analysis with fluctuating illumination conditions.

Integrated IP67 CMOS Camera Series Makes Waves in the Rugged Imaging Sector

Image Imperx, Inc. integrates IP67 protection directly into the design and build of its robust IP67 CMOS camera series.

Imperx’s innovative IP67 design protects the camera and lens without the need for an expensive housing, lowering the cost of ownership in applications with highly sensitive areas and harsh environmental conditions. This solution offers a small camera footprint, saving on space and reducing overall weight of the camera system. For users looking for flexibility and the ability to customize protection for varying lens sizes, Imperx now offers IP67 lens extenders to accommodate those needs Read more ›

Teledyne DALSA
New Genie Nano-CXP Cameras Boast Unrivaled Speed and Resolution

Image Teledyne DALSA announced its new GenieTM Nano-CXP C4090 and C5100 cameras, based on the On-SemiTM 16M and 25M Mono color sensors, are in full production now.

Built around the industry’s leading CMOS image sensors, these latest models range from 16 to 67-megapixel resolution with proven CoaXPressTM 6.25 Gbps technology offering breakthrough speed, robust build quality for wide operating temperatures, and an unmatched feature set. Perfectly complemented by the half-length Xtium-CXPTM frame grabber, they have been designed to work synergistically, minimizing CPU usage and improving processing times for host applications by enabling maximum sustained throughput and ready-to-use image data.

VS-FT12HV series, Built-in liquid focusing 12MP 1.1″ wide angle fixed focal length lens

Image VS-Technology Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the VS-FT12HV series wide angle fixed focal length lens with built in liquid focusing. This new series supports wide angles and is able to adjust focus from 150mm to infinity.

This lens series is designed for the demands of high-speed focusing applications where the object distance changes greatly and frequently such as OCR and code readers. By taking advantage of the wide-angle, the lens can reduce the number of cameras and lenses to install in a vision system and free up limited spaces.
