Machine vision from Europe´s No 1 technology provider


Imaging is our passion

STEMMER IMAGING is Europe's largest imaging technology provider with head office in Germany (Puchheim near Munich) and subsidiaries in many European countries.

Imaging or machine vision is used in many different application areas - such as industrial automation, production technologies, the automotive industry, medical imaging and traffic technology but also increasingly in food technology and many other industries - as a powerful and cost effective way of implementing automatic quality assurance. Even at high speeds and with stringent accuracy requirements, machine vision allows 100% monitoring and thus strengthens the competitive edge of those companies using it.

Our mission is to provide users and developers of imaging applications with competitive advantage by enabling easy access to quality machine vision technology, expertise and support, delivered with passion.
