Machine vision conference secures high profile speakers

Share this on social media:

Machine Vision in European Manufacturing, a new conference organised by Imaging and Machine Vision Europe, will take place on 13-14 September at St John’s College, Cambridge, UK. The event is aimed at integrators and end users in the manufacturing sector interested in learning more about the application of machine vision – and how it can save money and improve quality.

The event will be unmissable for anyone considering the use of vision to improve their manufacturing facility – or indeed those looking to upgrade an existing system. The programme is packed full of case studies and applications, providing delegates with examples of how others have tackled their own vision-related issues – and how their systems have worked for them in the past.

As well as the comprehensive programme (see below for details of confirmed speakers to date), there will be plenty of opportunity for delegates to network informally – all in the historic surroundings of St John’s College, Cambridge.

Delegates will gain invaluable information on the whole process of implementing a vision system, from creating the original brief, to finding an integrator, through the installation period to the operational phase. Many advantages gained from vision systems apply across many sectors, and our speakers are drawn from diverse applications in, for example, the automotive, pharmaceutical, pulp/paper, mining, glass, retail and food industries.

  • Three-dimensional robotic safety at DaimlerChrysler
    Dr Christian Wöhler, research division, DaimlerChrysler
  • Towards six sigma: how vision fosters excellence in quality management 
    Dr Jürgen Grotepass, Freudenberg Dichtungs und Schwingungstechnik GmbH & Co. KG
