MVTec at the SPS trade fair: High connectivity and easy process integration of the machine vision software MERLIC are in focus

• Slogan of the trade show appearance "MERLIC - your machine vision software for factory automation" underlines the capabilities of MVTec MERLIC to work together with all programmable logic controllers (PLCs) • Easy creation of complete machine vision applications even without programming knowledge

Munich, October 11, 2023 - MVTec Software GmbH ( a leading global manufacturer of machine vision software, will demonstrate at the SPS - Smart Production Solutions trade fair at hall 6, booth 424 from November 14 until November 16 how easy it is to integrate machine vision software into the process environment. "We consider machine vision to be the 'eye of production', because it offers decisive advantages for a wide range of applications, such as quality inspection or in collaboration with robots. It is important that the corresponding software can be easily integrated into the existing PLC environment. At the SPS, we want to show how this is possible and what advantages our easy-to-use MERLIC software offers. Accordingly, we have also chosen our trade show slogan 'MERLIC - your machine vision software for factory automation'", explains Dr. Maximilian Lückenhaus, Director Marketing + Business Development at MVTec Software GmbH.

Benefit from the advantages of machine vision - even without programming knowledge
MVTec will also present the new version 5.4 of the easy-to-use machine vision software MERLIC at its booth. In addition to various further developments, the new release includes new plug-ins for direct communication with different PLCs. Furthermore, MERLIC comprises the latest machine vision technologies, including numerous deep learning methods. The special feature of MERLIC, however, is that even users who have no programming knowledge can benefit from the advantages offered by machine vision software. This is made possible by a graphical user interface that allows entire machine vision applications to be implemented using drag & drop.
