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.
Mark Williamson, Director – Corporate Market Development at STEMMER IMAGING, has been elected as the next Chairman of the PPMA (Processing & Packaging Machinery Association). He has also been elected to serve on the Board of VDMA Machine Vision for the next three years.
The new Xtium-CL MX4 frame grabber has been introduced by Teledyne DALSA to support all CameraLink configurations with a single model with maximum performance and low cost. With the ever-increasing image resolution and faster frame rates of today’s camera technology, along with the need for creating flexible and cost effective vision systems, customers can now standardise on a single model for all applications. The new product supports applications such as colour print inspection, flat-panel inspection, and general machine vision applications.
STEMMER IMAGING can now offer the LMI Gocator 3109 3D Smart Snapshot Sensor, designed for assembly line builders who need to perform robot-mounted and fixed frame inline 3D scanning and inspection of stationary targets. 3D point cloud data acquisition, 3D measurement tools, and control decision capabilities are combined in a single package for powerful assembly feature inspection.
Common Vision Blox 2016, the new release of STEMMER IMAGING’s powerful development environment for machine vision applications, is now available. The new version features Windows 10 support with a GigE Vision filter driver, support for additional platforms and operating systems as well as the new CVB Polimago search tool.
Around 500 participants visited the second STEMMER IMAGING Vision Technology Forum, which took place on the 3rd and 4th of November 2015 in Unterschleissheim, in order to present state of the art technology and the latest developments.
Two new series of line scan cameras added to the STEMMER IMAGING camera range provide enhanced multispectral imaging capabilities for industrial imaging applications. The Sweep+ from JAI and the Quadlinear Piranha4 from Teledyne DALSA both allow simultaneous capture of colour and near infrared (NIR) images. A rich choice of imaging technologies, resolution and sensor types means that the most appropriate camera can be chosen for the application.
A 16k resolution CameraLink model and an 8k resolution GigE version with TurboDrive have been added to the Linea range of mono line scan cameras from Teledyne DALSA. Linea cameras provide exceptional performance at very low cost, and the new models make use of the CameraLink interface or TurboDrive-enabled GigE Vision to deliver outstanding line rates.
