Vision 2012, the international trade fair for machine vision which will take place in Stuttgart from 6-8 November, will be celebrating its 25th anniversary. ‘The number of registrations received to date is excellent. Nearly every exhibitor from Vision 2011 is coming back again and there will also be many new faces from the machine vision industry,’ commented Florian Niethammer, project manager for Vision at Messe Stuttgart.
The trade fair will be held for the first time in Hall 1, providing 21,000 square metres of floor space. Last year, 351 exhibitors presented their innovative machine vision components. The main target groups for Vision 2012 will be the machine vision industry itself, the electrotechnical and electronics industries, the automotive industry plus automotive component suppliers, the mechanical engineering industry and the medical technology industry.
The trade fair will feature the Medical Discovery Tour, the Integration Area, and the Application Park with its live demonstrations of quality control. Practical seminars will take place during the Vision Academy. The Industrial Vision Days, a series of talks organised on the basis of practical and market-related aspects by the VDMA Machine Vision Group, will also take place.
The trade fair will also include the Vision Award, which will be presented for the twentieth time for excellent achievements in the development of machine vision technologies or application solutions.
