Efficient management of resources instead of wasted production?

Machine vision makes it possible.

Machine vision systems recognize faulty parts and reject them at a very early stage. The parts can often be returned to the production process at a later point. In this way, you can optimize the use of materials and reduce costs. Find out all about machine vision at VISION from 4 to 6 November 2014 in Stuttgart - The Heart of Vision Technology. MORE>>
