Highlights include the latest features of its standard software versions HALCON 21.05 and 21.11, MERLIC 5, Deep Learning Tool, and state-of-the-art embedded vision solutions. With its presence at the machine vision trade fair in China, MVTec is highlighting the importance of the Chinese market once again. As early as April of last year, the company opened an office near Shanghai in order to be able to better serve this major growth market.
“With our office in Kunshan near Shanghai and our long-standing distributor DAHENG IMAGING, we offer our customers in China optimal support and maximum added value since many years. And with our first-time participation in Vision China Shenzhen, one of the most important trade shows for machine vision, we also give visitors in South China an opportunity to speak directly with MVTec experts,” explains Dr. Olaf Munkelt, Managing Director of MVTec Software GmbH.
Live demos aimed at specific market requirements in China
At the MVTec booth, various technologies and areas of application will be presented that are especially relevant for the Chinese market. Based on a number of live demonstrations, visitors will gain transparent, practical insight into the many different machine vision applications from MVTec. One of the exhibits is a new offline embedded board that integrates hardware and typical cameras from different manufacturers. The board will serve to demonstrate both the various potential applications and the high compatibility of MVTec products with different embedded hardware.
A demonstration of how the software identifies various screws on a rotary table will cover the ways in which HALCON can be used to implement deep-learning-based object recognition. On the basis of practical examples and videos, an interactive touchscreen demo will present a variety of topics and technologies relating to machine vision, including anomaly detection, Deep OCR, the Subpixel Bar Code Reader, and an agricultural application relating to 3D plant inspection. Features of the new version MERLIC 5 all-in-one software will also be presented. In addition, a demonstration based on the example of circuit board inspection will show how MERLIC makes it much easier to apply complex deep learning algorithms by utilizing a camera from our Chinese distributor DAHENG IMAGING. The demo runs on an NVIDIA board and showcases the robustness of the MVTec software on embedded devices.
