MVTec Software GmbH

Software - The Nucleus of Machine Vision

At the Hannover Fair 2005 (April 11 – 15), the most important industrial fair worldwide, MVTec Software GmbH from Munich, Germany, is the only exclusive manufacturer presenting software for machine vision. The constantly growing company shows how to answer the most challenging questions in machine vision, automation, or quality assurance. This also reflects the theme of MVTec’s booth: "Software for Machine Vision".

Currently, machine vision is the largest growth sector in mechanical engineering. In software development, MVTec’s know-how regularly sets milestones for this booming multipurpose technology. 20 years experience in developing enables MVTec’s engineers to continuously define the state of the art and to bring forward the market by innovations for the benefit of the users.


The MVTec software library HALCON is used worldwide in industry, research laboratories, and medical technology. It provides solutions to all machine vision applications. The most important criteria in professional use are reliability and robustness. Reliability means that an application must run continuously for a long time without any problems. Robustness means that the software must be able to compensate the weaknesses of the used hardware and that the software must be adaptable to changing environmental conditions. Examples are partly occluded objects, changing lighting conditions, strong background noise, perspective distortions, and other optical camera defects.


At the Hannover Fair 2005, MVTec shows not only its expertise in producing standard software for machine vision, but also presents itself as a support partner for this branch and as a provider of customized solutions. The customized solutions are based on the high-quality and sophisticated software of MVTec. Therefore, from the viewpoint of experienced engineers and advised users, software is the nucleus of each machine vision application.


It is astonishing what software can perform nowadays on a standard PC. For this user group, the particularly user-friendly tool box ActivVisionTools is optimally adapted. Furthermore, it comes with a very attractive modular pricing structure. Nevertheless, ActivVisionTools meets highest requirements because it is based on the high-speed operators of HALCON. In the world of machine vision, this combination surely is unique.


On Thursday, April 14, 14:00, MVTec presents the new version 3.0 of ActivVisionTools in the context of a tutorial. It will be presented how refreshingly easy this software can be operated and how quickly it can be connected to camera hardware! The seminar takes place in hall 12 of the Convention Center on the fairground.


Dr. Olaf Munkelt, MVTec’s managing director, is invited to participate in the public panel discussion "Sensor and Machine Vision Technology", where top representatives will discuss the newest trends and developments of this industry branch. It will take place on Friday, April 15, 11:00, in the forum Factory Automation (hall 17).
