On the very first day of the SPS 2023 trade fair in Nuremberg, MVTec was able to celebrate a major success for the announcement of its partnership with Siemens: in two stage presentations in the Siemens exhibition hall, Dr. Olaf Munkelt, Managing Director of MVTec Software GmbH, and Klaus Schrenker, Business Development Manager at MVTec, presented the MVTec MERLIC-based app "Anomaly Detection for Visual Inspection" to the large audience. This app will soon be available in the open Siemens Xcelerator ecosystem. Basler AG is also part of the ecosystem.

In the first presentation, Rainer Brehm, CEO Factory Automation at Siemens, Dr. Dietmar Ley, CEO of Basler AG and Dr. Munkelt announced the partnership.

In the afternoon, Klaus Schrenker and Dr. Stefan Ingo Meier from Siemens presented the benefits and use cases of the app in detail, as well as the technologies behind it (such as Global Context Anomaly Detection).

MVTec demonstrated its own functionalities and the associated flexibility in several ways: In the mentioned Hall 11, which was hosted by Siemens, there was also a demo to see in addition to the aforementioned presentations. The large audience was able to experience a battery inspection by MERLIC, which is integrated into the Siemens Edge ecosystem. Interested visitors were able to find more demonstrations at TTTech Industrial and at the Moxa booth, in which MERLIC played a key role in demos regarding Nerve - the IIoT platform specifically for machine builders. Another touchpoint was provided in Hall 6 at the MVTec booth, where the company's easy-to-use software was used to check printed circuit boards for defects.
