UKIVA celebrates 20th anniversary

Share this on social media:

The UK Industrial Vision Association (UKIVA) is celebrating its 20th anniversary. The prime objective of the association has always been to promote the use of vision in industry, primarily through a series of educational activities.

Now a Special Interest Group of the PPMA (Processing and Packaging Machinery Association), UKIVA has three main membership categories. ‘Vision Technology Providers’ can supply end-user and OEM customers with anything from individual components such as cameras or light sources to complete vision systems. The new ‘Vision System Integrator and Consultants’ category will make it easier for customers to find companies who specialise in working with manufacturers to integrate vision into a new or existing production line. The new ‘Providers of Solutions that utilise Vision Technology’ category provides another way for PPMA members that build machines with integrated vision technology to showcase their vision-enabled products.

UKIVA chairman, Mark Williamson said: ‘We have recently revised our membership categories to better reflect the state of industrial vision in the UK and these are designed to help existing members, potential new members and vision customers alike. Throughout the past 20 years, members have benefited from being part of a progressive organisation dedicated to raising awareness of the capabilities of vision. The association is committed to continuing this process and would welcome any new members.’
