Machine vision is a dynamic field: STEMMER IMAGING and our suppliers are the world´s leading manufacturers for machine vision components and solutions, introducing many brand new developments several times a year.
With the new bonNDTinspect® system, Automation W+R enables the reliable assessment of surfaces that are to be bonded, painted or otherwise treated in subsequent process steps. The system is based on a patent held by Fraunhofer IFAM and machine vision components from STEMMER IMAGING.
Deep learning is currently one of the most exciting topics in machine vision.

Numerous international football stars such as Messi, Neymar and others have already tried to beat this goalkeeper from the penalty spot – mostly without success. Standing between the goalposts is not a human being, but RoboKeeper – probably the world's fastest goalkeeper.
The JAI Apex Series of 3CMOS prism-based colour area scan cameras has been expanded with 5 new models. The range now features 3.2 Mpixel and 1.6 Mpixel versions, with PMCL, USB3 Vision, and GigE Vision interfaces available in each resolution.
As of 1st July, STEMMER IMAGING founds its own subsidiary in Austria. In the future, customers will benefit from even better advice and support through the local office in Graz.
Following its successful IPO in February, STEMMER IMAGING AG (ISIN DE000A2G9MZ9 / GSIN A2G9MZ) is pushing forward its ambitious growth strategy. To this end, the expert for industrial machine vision establishes a 100% subsidiary in Austria. All STEMMER IMAGING products and services will be available to customers from the Graz office.
The LXE300 Direct Connect line light and Connect-a-Light line light, Prox spot light and Brick spot light ranges of machine vision lights from Smart Vision Lights are now available in SWIR (Short Wavelength InfraRed) wavelengths. This opens up an extensive number of application opportunities not possible using visible light.
The Boa Spot IDE integrated vision sensor from Teledyne DALSA is a low cost 1D/2D code reader with additional OCR and verification tools, all at the price point of a traditional code reader. The versatile high-speed code reading algorithm not only increases reading speeds by a factor of up to 10, but offers enhanced capabilities for more difficult direct part marking applications.
High accuracy machine vision applications are dependent on the production of reproducible, high quality images, whether for inspection or measurement purposes. This means that the images must have sufficient resolution and proper definition of the areas of interest for the inspection or measurement to take place. Each element of a machine vision system has an important role to play in the overall outcome, but the optical system is a critical component since it forms the image of the object on the camera sensor.
In April, STEMMER IMAGING held its first CVB User Group Meeting at its headquarters in Puchheim near Munich. More than 50 registered participants had the opportunity to find out more about the latest developments in the Common Vision Blox (CVB) the machine vision programming library from STEMMER IMAGING. With over 80,000 deployed licenses, CVB is one of the most used software platforms for machine vision.
The new microEnable5 marathon VCX-QP frame grabber from Silicon Software allows up to four CoaXPress cameras to be connected simultaneously with a bandwidth of 25 Gbit/s. An on-board FPGA vision processor is fully programmable using VisualApplets for high performance image processing.
