Leading world trade fair for machine vision showcases innovations in all exhibition areas / FRAMOS, Matrix Vision, MVTEC and Vision Components celebrate company anniversaries


Embedded Vision, 3D machine vision, cameras, software and more: In November numerous new products are being showcased in all exhibition areas of VISION. "In the last few days and weeks our exhibitors have started to announce what they are presenting at VISION 2016. Even after several years as project manager of the leading world trade fair the development dynamic of the industry never fails to impress me", states Florian Niethammer from Messe Stuttgart. "Our visitors can look forward to a varied trade fair."

The list of product innovations being presented at VISION is long: A 3D sensor, which detects objects and contours in the room, a recently launched wide-angle lens - high-resolution with nine megapixels -, an enhanced 3D scanning process, the latest laser modules for industrial machine vision and lots, lots more.

Among the numerous innovations in the booming machine vision industry, some anniversaries are also being celebrated in the L-Bank Forum. With Framos (35), Matrix Vision (30), MVTEC (20) and Vision Components (20), four regular exhibitors of VISION are celebrating company anniversaries this year at the trade fair.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
