Machine vision: MVTec presents itself at VISION China Shanghai and celebrates the opening of its new subsidiary in China

• Exhibiting at the VDMA joint pavilion • HALCON 20.05 and Deep Learning Tool in focus • Presentation of the hardware-software bundle with MERLIC and PALLAS • Celebrating the opening of the new subsidiary

Munich, June 4, 2020 - MVTec Software GmbH (www.mvtec.com), a leading international software provider for machine vision, will present its current release HALCON 20.05 at VISION China Shanghai from July 3 to 5, 2020. In addition, MVTec will show the new Deep Learning Tool, which is used to prepare and manage images for deep learning applications in MVTec HALCON efficiently. In a live demo, screws are used to show how HALCON's deep learning technologies uniquely recognize a wide variety of objects.


The VISION China Shanghai (www.visionchinashow.net) is one of the internationally most important fairs for machine vision. In the pavilion of the the Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA) at booth 7.1D312 visitors can inform themselves about MVTec's current software products. However, MVTec's products will not only be on display at the own booth, but also at the booth of MVTec's established Chinese distribution partner DAHENG IMAGING. Among others, the hardware-software-bundle consisting of the smart camera PALLAS by DAHENG and the software MERLIC by MVTec will be presented there. The combination of powerful and easy-to-use machine vision software with hardware components offers the user a fully integrated machine vision system ready for immediate use.

Participation in VISION China Shanghai will be the first trade fair appearance of MVTec Vision Technology (Kunshan) Co., Ltd.. The Chinese branch of MVTec was opened in April 2020 in Kunshan, near Shanghai. Interested parties are cordially invited to meet the new colleagues and to celebrate the opening of the new office together with MVTec.

For more information about the new subsidiary in China, please read the interview by Dr. Olaf Munkelt in the cover story of the trade show magazine "Machine Vision" or contact us.
