Exciting array of new machine vision technology set to debut at MVC 2023

By Annie Gomes -

The annual Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition is set to showcase the very best in machine vision and industrial technology. Now in its seventh year, MVC is an established industrial vision confex that regularly attracts more than 500 visitors a day and features a wealth of sector-specific exhibitors and expert presentations.

Organised by UKIVA (UK Industrial Vision Association), the MVC event promotes the use of image processing technology throughout UK industry and allows visitors to experience the benefits of automated inspection, combining the latest machine vision systems with automation.

Taking take place at the Coventry Building Society Arena between 20 and 21 June 2023, MVC will be its usual content-packed event, providing visitors with a wealth of new, up-to-date information with more than 40 technical seminars dedicated to machine vision users and engineers.

Alongside the conference is an industry focused exhibition showcasing the latest innovations in industrial vision. Combined, the confex is a must attend event for anyone looking for a vision solution for their business.

Highlights for the show include a wealth of new solutions from some of the leading names in the machine vision sector.

TPL Vision (Stand 45) has extended its Modular range with the addition of the Modular Tiny Bar light (M-TBAR). The addition of this to the Modular range improves flexibility for users, providing a convenient way of expertly illuminating small-scale vision applications that require a robust lighting solution.

Capitalising on its 15 years of expertise and continuous R&D input, Hikrobot (Stand 13) has recently launched a full range of new products, many of which will be on display during the show. The new products include specially designed industrial cameras and data interfaces for high-speed applications, VM4.3 software with better algorithm performance, more versatile code readers from fixed to handheld, new smart cameras with compact size and powerful built-in algorithms, and new 3D cameras for high-precision measurement and robotics applications.

IDS Imaging Development Systems (Stand 39) will also be displaying new products, with the resolution and accuracy of its Ensenso N series 3D cameras benefiting from advanced resolution and accuracy.

Acrovision (Stand 18) will be demonstrating at least two examples of user-friendly AI / Machine Learning Vision, helping conclude Identification or Inspection problems that traditional vision tools have so far been unable to resolve.

The demonstrations will be using technology that challenges the assumption that AI / Deep Learning vision has to be expensive or difficult and time consuming to implement, using easy to setup Smart Cameras not requiring external PC’s or software.

For its Conference presentation, Acrovision will be concentrating on explaining the benefits of using AI OCR (Optical Character Recognition) for various identification tasks. Whether it is a laser-etched serial number on an automotive part or a Use-by-Date on a wrinkled consumer product packaging, the company will demonstrate how new Edge Learning tools are making these previously problematic applications easier to solve.

With its 12 Mpixel sensors, the new BVS 3D-RV1 3D camera from MATRIX VISION (Stand 3) achieves a level of detection accuracy that is required for handling small and complex parts in a larger viewing area. As a result, the camera is suitable for demanding bin-picking applications in industrial automation and logistics.

An integrated pattern projector optimises the detection of difficult parts or scenes with little visual texture. The supplied software library ensures compatibility with the GigE Vision and GenICam standards and therefore flexible integration with customers’ own applications and third-party 3D software.

For the first time this year, MVC is co-located with Automation UK, the new exhibition being staged by PPMA stablemate, BARA (the British Automation & Robot Association). The co-location offers visitors to MVC the opportunity to share in the expert seminar programme as well as tour the sister show, which highlights the latest products, developments and solutions in robotics and automation.

Big names exhibiting at Automation UK include ABB, CKF, FANUC, FESTO, KUKA Robotics, Mills CNC, Piab, PILZ Automation, RM Group, Schubert and Yaskawa. Joining them will be nearly 40 other companies all active in the sector and looking to raise their profiles and generate new business.

As the voice of the industrial vision industry, the UKIVA is uniquely placed to guide and shape the content of the event, promoting the use of image processing technology throughout UK industry, helping visitors to learn new processes and find out about the new technology designed to provide businesses with a competitive edge.

For first-time visitors and those new to the sector, the event will seek to inform, educate and de-mystify machine vision. Demonstrating new technology and preconfigured packages can ease implementation in different applications and different industries, significantly simplifying installation and set-up.

Both the UKIVA and BARA are members of the PPMA (Processing and Packaging Machinery Association) group of trade associations. The PPMA is the UK trade association for suppliers of processing and packaging machinery to both the domestic and overseas markets. With more than 550 member companies, the association’s principal objective is to help members sell more products and services through the PPMA Group’s various exhibitions, publications and training.
