Paul Wilson elected UKIVA chairman

Scorpion Vision’s managing director Paul Wilson has become the new UK Industrial Vision Association (UKIVA) chairman for the next two years, taking over from Ian Alderton after serving two years as vice-chairman. Allan Anderson, managing director of Clearview Imaging, was elected as the new vice-chairman. The news was announced at UKIVA's recent annual meeting at Arena MK in Milton Keynes.

In taking up the new role, Wilson noted that the association was going from strength to strength and paid tribute to Alderton for his contributions towards establishing the association’s biggest undertaking to date, UKIVA’s upcoming Machine Vision Conference.

According to Wilson, the conference represents a milestone for industrial vision in the UK. ‘This is the first independent event of its kind,’ he said. ‘We are well on track to achieve our aim of 50 technical vision seminars across a broad range of vision topics and we already have over 40 of the industry’s leading companies signed up for the accompanying exhibition. 

‘We are looking to attract a broad cross section of delegates, from those who are completely new to vision through to experienced vision engineers,’ Wilson continued. ‘There will be something to interest everyone, and of course, a wonderful networking opportunity.’

Wilson praised the efforts of the conference organising committee, with a special mention for the new vice-chairman Anderson who has driven the project forward. 

The UKIVA Machine Vision Conference will take place on 27 April 2017 at Arena MK. Visitor registration is now open at www.machinevisionconference.co.uk.
