UK vision award for industry established

The UK Industrial Vision Association, a Special Interest Group of the PPMA (Processing and Packaging Manufacturing Association), has established the first award in the UK for innovation in industrial vision. The award will be made for the ‘Most Innovative Machine Vision Project’ and is part of the PPMA Group of Associations Industry Awards 2012.

The award is open to all vision equipment suppliers, system integrators or end users that have installed an innovative vision system in the period between January 2011 and June 2012. All parties involved will be recognised by this award. Judges will look for an application that increases productivity and will also consider aspects such as design, safety and creativity.

Entries are free and should consist of a description in less than 800 words on why the application should win this award and should be supported by photographs and testimonials from users where possible. Initial submissions should be made by April 30th 2012.

The Award will be shortlisted and judged by a fully independent panel of industry specialists, with the Awards Ceremony taking place in front of 400 industry leaders, press and government in Birmingham on the evening of 25 September 2012 – the first night of the PPMA show.
