VISION is the world’s leading trade fair for machine vision. The who’s who in the machine vision industry meets in Stuttgart and presents an incomparable range of products and services: from sensors to processors, from cables to cameras, from software to illumination systems. However, complete machine vision systems and very specific applications for many different industries are exhibited – from mechanical engineering and the automotive industry through to the medical technology industry and many, many more industries besides. We take account of the diverse interests of visitors through special event modules such as the Integration Area and the Industrial VISION days forum.
