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.

Thomas Lübkemeier
Kind regards,
Thomas Lübkemeier
EMVA General Secretary



The EMVA will be present at the 2018 edition of the VISION trade show offering networking events like the traditional International Vision Night and promoting the international machine vision standards.

International VISION Night – Sold Out

The EMVA is pleased to organize the popular International VISION Night event on the evening before the trade show starts. In good tradition – it will be the 12th EMVA Vision Night – the machine vision community will meet for a pleasant evening in a casual setting.

More than 115 attendees are looking forward to the networking event and EMVA’s event team had to close the registration already days ago due to the restaurant’s maximum capacity.

International VISION Standards Booth at the show

The EMVA exhibits at VISION 2018 as leading organizer of the International Machine Vision Standards Booth.

Machine vision experts present the most commonly used digital interface standards in the industry in their current versions and stand by for advice on which standard should be used best for a certain application.
Besides of interface standards like CenICam, USB3, or CoaxPress also the most recent developments of EMVA1288 – standard for camera qualification – are addressed.

VISION 2018 – Matchmaking Service

Image VISION 2018 is supported by Business Beyond Borders (BBB), a matching initiative of the European Commission. Visitors and exhibitors are given the opportunity to find appropriate partners to initiate business according to their needs and profiles.

Exhibitors and visitors can register on an online platform in advance and create an interest profile. Appropriate business partners are brought together based on the requests. Then, in the matchmaking area of the trade fair, it is time for the face to face B2B meetings!

Case Study

CARL ZEISS – Big Data for Maximum Quality

ImageMore than 230 different body-in-white parts are hot-stamped by the Spanish metal processor Gestamp for automotive companies. Since the company measures 33,500 parts per year, they can identify more quickly which tools need to be replaced.
They simply could not tackle their measuring jobs with the existing coordinate measuring machine – but now processes are running smoothly with the ZEISS AIBox.

CX polarization cameras – Nothing remains hidden anymore

Image The new CMOS-based CX series polarization cameras with GigE and USB 3.0 by Baumer, uses the polarization properties of light and thus allows a wide range of new industrial image processing applications, e.g. for quality control in glass production, carbon fiber fabric (CFRP) or reflective surfaces. The cameras use the 5 Megapixel IMX250MZR global shutter sensor by Sony which has an additional polarization layer consisting of four polarization filters (0°, 90°, 45°, 135°) at the pixel level. A single image is sufficient to simultaneously determine the degree and angle of polarization of the polarized light without changing the filter. Read more ›

BITFLOW – First CXP v2.0 Frame Grabbers

Image BitFlow, a global innovator in frame grabber technology for machine vision, announced today that it will display its first generation of CXP v2.0 frame grabbers at the upcoming VISION Show scheduled for November 6-8, 2018, in Stuttgart, Germany.
Over the past two years BitFlow has furnished input and direction to the Japan Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA) on the finalization of the new CoaXPress v2.0 (CXP v2.0) standard — an upgrade that will double the speed of the interface used in the inspection of semiconductors, food and beverage, and pharmaceuticals, among others.

Firefly – Software Solutions for Optimum X-ray Computed Tomography

Image The Fraunhofer EZRT, a division of Fraunhofer IIS, develops innovative software modules for industrial applications with computed tomography (CT). While standard processes repeatedly reach their limits, these intelligent algorithms help system manufacturers and users to significantly improve the results of three-dimensional imaging and enable the high-precision dimensional measurement for many applications for the first time.

SILICON SOFTWARE – VisualApplets Forum

Image At forum.silicon.software VisualApplets users and interested parties can access the discussion forum in English via desktop PCs and mobile devices. Silicon Software experts will moderate the forum, support it and expand the knowledge base. The variety of topics is large: installation, licensing, operators, design rules, pre-configured design examples, etc. Read more ›

11Mpixel CMOS image sensor for high-speed applications

Image Teledyne e2v announces the expansion of its Lince family of image sensors with a new 11Megapixel detector. Lince11M is a new CMOS image sensor designed for applications that require 4K resolution at very high shutter speed. This standard sensor uniquely combines 4K resolution at 710 fps in APS-C format.

Lince11M can be advantageously used for in-line inspection to increase manufacturing throughput, or with strobed lighting for multispectral imaging or multi field (bright field, dark field, backlight) imaging, and serve as an alternative to line scan sensors to improve defect classification where uniform image sharpness across all directions is critical.

Next generation family of frame grabbers for high-performance image acquisition

Image Teledyne DALSA announces the next generation high-performance family of frame grabbers – the Xtium2 for the PCIe Gen3 platform.
The Xtium2 family starts with the introduction of two new models of frame grabber boards featuring AIA’s Camera Link HS® interface: the Xtium2-CLHS PX8 and Xtium2-CLHS FX8. The series will also provide support to upcoming and existing interfaces like CoaXPress® (ver 2.0) and Camera Link.
The Xtium2-CLHS PX8 features 7-lanes operating at 10 Gbit/s using CLHS X-Protocol and can deliver host transfer bandwidth in excess of 6.8 GByte/s. Read more ›

16 Mpix high resolution camera with exciting speed possibilities

Image Following the release of the initial model with 12 Mpix at 333 Fps, XIMEA is now ready for orders of an additional version with high resolution of 16 Mpix and speeds over 300 frames per second.

The exceptionally fast PCIe interface allows the xiB-64 camera family to stream data at speeds as high as 64 Gbit/s over distances of up to 300m without the need of expensive frame grabbers or special, complicated software. Resolution range of this camera line starts at 1 Mpix up to 16 Mpix and is further enhanced with a Canon lens EF-mount that allows remote control of aperture, focus and image stabilization.
