Machine vision


The latest machine-vision solutions at automatica

When it comes to smart automation of your production processes, machine vision is an essential pillar. After all, when your machines see and understand, they can interact correctly and autonomously—and improve efficiency in a sustainable manner.

Today's automated machine vision systems are veritable multi-talents. They read codes, identify components, operate machines and control processes. They also test product quality and provide valuable data for optimizing your production operation. In many production facilities, they are already valuable co-workers that work full time to improve quality, efficiency and safety.

Machine vision is also being used for a growing number of applications outside the factory. Whether in online or retail sales, on the motorway, in doctors' offices or on the playing field: Their versatility is virtually limitless.
