AutoVimation has won the €5,000 first prize in an innovation competition held by Innovationsfabrik Karlsruhe. Founded in 2008, the company which manufactures state-of-the-art protective enclosures for cameras and a machine vision construction kit came out above other companies, universities and developers from the Karlsruhe region. The prize was awarded by a jury consisting mainly of local CEOs and company founders.

'We are very happy about this award,' commented autoVimation's founder Peter Neuhaus. 'The prize money will help us extend our product portfolio.'

AutoVimation's robust, compact protective enclosures allow for the use of cameras even in demanding industrial environments. Unlike conventional enclosures, they feature a patented quick lock and heat guide system which ensures flexible positioning and considerably better heat dissipation, since all installed cameras are thermally coupled to the outer enclosure wall and thus passively cooled. Additionally, the enclosures ensure a vibration-proof installation and can be easily integrated into machines and plants.

All components of the construction kit (mounting blocks for cameras, enclosures, mounting and adjustment brackets, dovetail profiles, mounting plates for illumination and lasers) feature a modular design, which allows users to install them in almost any combination. Thereby, highly flexible, application-specific solutions can be implemented with just a few components. Additional accessories include a heating and a cooling system and an air curtain.
