Allied Vision Showcases Camera Solutions for the Chinese Market at Vision China

Camera manufacturer exhibits at Vision China in Shanghai from March 17-19, 2015. New camera models selected for Chinese market needs, and inspiring application demos.

Allied Vision's Shanghai-based subsidiary will be exhibiting at Vision China in Shanghai from March 17-19, 2015. The booth will showcase latest camera innovations selected to meet Chinese market needs as well as inspiring application demos of real-life camera applications.

New Mako models for high-performance, cost-effective industrial inspection

Chinese manufacturing industries are investing more and more into machine vision systems to optimize their processes and their quality assurance. Small cameras in "sugar cube" format are particularly popular in that very competitive, cost-sensitive market. To meet this demand, one highlight of Allied Vision's booth is the Mako camera family. Mako is Allied Vision's camera series providing the highest quality standards at an unbeatable price/performance ratio. Six new models from VGA to 5 Megapixels featuring the latest CCD and CMOS sensor technology will be introduced in Shanghai to the Chinese Market.

High-speed infrared imaging for demanding semiconductor and photovoltaic inspection

Allied Vision will also showcase its latest infrared camera models from the Goldeye family. Goldeye is a short-wave infrared camera (SWIR) combining scientific precision with industrial performance. The highlight of the show will be the latest addition to the Goldeye series, Goldeye G-033. This camera delivers high-quality infrared images at up to 300 fps, which makes it the fastest SWIR camera with GigE Vision interface in the market. The Goldeye G-033 is particularly suited for demanding industrial inspection tasks beyond the visible spectrum such as semiconductor and photovoltaic inspection imaging through a silicon wafer, two industries that are strongly represented in China.

Camera solutions for successful applications

Visitors of the Allied Vision booth will also have a chance to discover interesting industrial and scientific imaging applications using Allied Vision's camera technology.

LemnaTec, a Germany-based company offering plant phenotyping solutions, demonstrates its inspection system using Goldeye short-wave infrared cameras to measure the water content in plants. This system is used by world leading research labs to study the water absorption and drying process of agricultural plants in order to select the most productive species.

8tree, a German-US company, presents an innovative portable 3D scanner used in the automotive and aerospace industries to identify and measure surface irregularities such as dents, bumps or gaps. 8tree's scanner inspects a surface within seconds thanks to a fast Manta G-031 camera from Allied Vision and projects the results immediately onto the object. The system has been recently awarded one of the top 10 innovations of the year 2015 by inVISION, a leading machine vision magazine in Germany.

"Allied Vision is strongly committed to the Chinese market and we feel at home in Shanghai, where our Chinese office is located", says Peter Yeo, Sales Manager of Allied Vision Shanghai. "We look forward to welcoming visitors at our booth and providing them expert advice in finding the right imaging technology for their application".

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.
