BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The show of vision, North America’s largest machine vision and imaging show, opens in Boston October 11-13 with leading solution providers and industry experts showcasing real-world, hands-on applications critical to solving challenges in a myriad of industries. The Vision Show also includes a conference designed to educate engineers, business leaders and potential buyers on the latest technologies and developments in machine vision, imaging, sensors, autonomous mobile robots (AMR), collaborative robots, etc. Registration and full agenda are available here.
Companies in industries such as manufacturing, logistics, food and beverage, life science, and medical are deploying machine vision and imaging systems to increase profitability, improve throughput, reduce defects, comply with regulations and solve specific problems. According to the conference host organization, the Association for the Advancement of Automation, the North American machine vision market set new records for the first half of 2022, with orders totaling $1.588 billion between machine vision components ($227 million) and systems ($1.355 billion) . These volumes surpassed previous records set in 2021 by a total of 6.2%.
“In today’s increasingly connected and automated world, machine vision and imaging systems are an integral part of nearly every automation system, so it’s no surprise to see this industry growing. booming with the robotics industry,” said Jeff Burnstein, president of A3, which helps develop global standards for the vision industry and has hundreds of vision and imaging vendors and integrators. among its more than 1,100 member companies. “At the Vision Show, companies can find the right solution providers, the right technology and the right expertise to implement vision and imaging systems where they are needed to improve their automation processes now and in the future. months and years to come.”
