2019 UKIVA Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition date and venue announced 

UKIVA Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition

The third UKIVA Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition will take place on 6 June at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes.

he organisers told MVPro Magazine that the event is becoming increasingly popular with attendance figures in 2018 up 17% compared to 2017.

The 2019 iteration will follow a similar format to previous years, with a programme of technical seminars supported by an exhibition featuring vision component manufacturers, vision component and system distributors and systems integrators from around the world.

The 2019 Conference will feature an additional theme, covering applications of vision in automation and robotics.

Chris Valdes, UKIVA event organiser and business development manager for the PPMA (Processing & Packaging Machinery Association), said: “At the event in 2018, a number of exhibitors included robots and cobots in their displays, which provided a great deal of interest.  There have also been recent developments in the communication standards for machine vision and robots for use in Industry 4.0, making technical seminars on vision, robotics and automation even more relevant.

“UKIVA has a natural affinity with the combined use of vision and robotics as BARA (British Automation & Robotics Association) is, like UKIVA, part of the umbrella PPMA (Processing & Packaging Machinery Association) and many of our members have an active interest in BARA as well.”
