EMVA joins with Automatica 2008
The European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) has partnered with Automatica 2008, the Third International Trade Fair for Automation taking place in Munich, Germany, from 10-13 June 2008.
Automatica is the international trade fair that brings together all areas of robotics and automation and showcases the complete range of robotics, assembly and handling technology, machine vision and associated technologies. New developments in robot vision will be presented in hall B3, whereas in hall B2, machine vision solutions from all manufacturing industries will be demonstrated. In addition, assembly and handling technology, in which vision technology plays an increasingly important role, will be focused on in halls A1 and A2.
'The EMVA recognises Automatica not only as a major international trade fair for vision technology but also as a unique communication platform in which concrete applications in the field of robotics and assembly technology can be effectively presented,' said Gabriele Jansen, president of EMVA and managing director of Jansen CEO.
Furthermore, the leading trade fair for solar technologies, the Intersolar 2008, will take place in parallel during two of the four exhibition days. The photovoltaics industry has become a major user of image processing to raise the quality and cut production costs of solar cells.
