Companies in industries such as manufacturing, logistics, food & beverage, life sciences and medical deploy machine vision and imaging systems to increase profitability, improve throughput, reduce defects, comply with regulations and solve specific challenges. According to the conference host organization, the Association for Advancing Automation, the North America machine vision market set new records for the first half of 2022, with orders totally $1.588 billion between machine vision components ($227 million) and systems ($1.355 billion). These volumes exceeded the previous records set in 2021 by 6.2% overall.
“In today’s increasingly connected and automated world, machine vision and imaging systems are integral to nearly every automation system, so it isn’t suprising to see this industry booming along with the robotics industry,” said Jeff Burnstein, president of A3, which helps develop the global standards for the vision industry and boasts hundreds of vision and imaging suppliers and integrators among its 1,100+ member companies. “At The Vision Show, companies can find the right solution providers, the right technology and the right expertise to implement vision and imaging systems where they’re needed to improve their automation processes now and in the months and years to come.”
