MVTec Introduces MERLIC A New Generation of Vision Software

MERLIC is an all-in-one, PC-based solution.

Munich, Germany - MVTec Software GmbH is pleased to introduce MERLIC, a new,

all-in-one machine vision software product that enables users to quickly
build complete solutions without programming. MERLIC offers a radically new
user experience with novel interaction concepts, an image-centered user
interface, and many easy-to-use tools.

To keep up with the growing world-wide demand for machine vision technology,
machine makers reduce development time by increasing productivity and
efficiency of their engineering teams. To enable vision engineers with
minimal software programming knowledge, as well as those who dont have time
to program a complete application, MVTec introduces the new software product
MERLIC. Based on MVTecs comprehensive expertise and designed in partnership
with users, MERLIC offers a rich and intuitive machine vision software
package.

MERLIC is an all-in-one, PC-based solution. It provides the customer with a
development and configuration environment to build complete machine vision
applications with integrated PLC communication and graphical user interface.
MERLIC includes many standard vision tools such as calibration, alignment,
measurement, counting, checking, identification, geometry, location, and
defect detection. It can also be extended with customized, user-defined
tools.

A key objective in developing MERLIC was to provide a user-friendly and
efficient workflow experience. MERLICs image-centered interface design
allows developers to focus on the image rather than on complex code or
parameter lists. Further enhancing the experience, MERLICs unique
easyTouch concept interactively helps the user towards the final solution.
For example, easyTouch recognizes and marks to be identified objects by
simply hovering the mouse pointer over an image. Thus, the users do not have
to configure complex parameters. For example, by simply hovering the mouse
pointer over an image, easyTouch automatically recognizes and marks
objects for inspection. Other intuitive features like the built-in front-end
GUI designer, support for multiple cameras, support for multiple languages,
and an automatic documentation generator for creating user manuals
significantly speed up the development process.

It is always our ambition to serve the machine vision market with
technology-leading products and solutions. states Olaf Munkelt, Managing
Director of MVTec. With MERLIC we can now provide the power of machine
vision to a broader group of users with an innovative, easy-to-use
interface.

MERLIC is scheduled for release in 2015. The current prototype of MERLIC
will be presented for the first time in public at the AUTOMATICA in Munich,
Germany (June 3-6, 2014).

New KUKA Robot: KR 3 AGILUS Maximum performance in minimum space

Great advances often start with small steps - in manufacturing cells measuring only 600 × 600 mm. Here, the KR 3 AGILUS is in its element. Particularly in the case of small parts and products which must be produced in a minimum of space. KUKA expertise, concentrated into the smallest of spaces, is setting new standards for the 3-kg class. The lightweight robot masters various tasks with agility, dynamism and maximum precision, leading to high flexibility in production - even when it comes to extremely narrow spaces.
