OEM Automatic, the market leading supplier of components for industrial automation, will be exhibiting at the 2019 UKIVA Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition, 6 June in Milton Keynes.
OEM will be showcasing the latest range of machine vision cameras from new supplier SONY. The XC range consists of 14 high speed vision cameras ranging in resolution from 1.6MP to 12.4MP. The cameras are optimised for use in a wide variety of industries from general automation, quality and robot guidance applications to inspection systems and medical applications.
Richard Hammond, OEM Automatic’s Product Manager, Machine Vision and Identification, comments “The show is a great opportunity to showcase the technical capabilities of the cameras. The implementation of the Pregius shutter pixel technology for active pixel-type CMOS image sensors can really impact the efficiency of so many automation applications.
We’re still relatively new in the Machine Vision industry in the UK, but our agreement to supply SONY solutions is a fantastic chance to make an impact in the Machine Vision industry.”
This will be the third year that the event has been run, and it is becoming increasingly popular with attendance figures in 2018 up 17% compared to 2017.
The event will follow a similar format to previous years, with a comprehensive program of technical seminars supported by an exhibition featuring vision component manufacturers, vision component and system distributors and systems integrators from around the world. However, 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,” added Valdes.Product news
