With the advent of digital technology, the world has been introduced to a myriad of marvels in the digital device space. As robotics and artificial intelligence have evolved to become an extension to human cognizance and capabilities, there have been significant developments to perfect these attributes and do a finer job. Among one such recent development is Machine Vision. Growing rapidly with a soaring demand for vision guided robotic systems in industries such as pharmaceutical & chemical, food & beverage, automotive, and packaging, MV has become the benchmarks for robotics in quality inspection and automation. Riding this wave of application-oriented machine vision system adoption, MV has taken over the modern robotics, the market of which is currently valued at USD 9.95 billion.
Conventionally, deployed to assist in supervising work environments, MV has been significantly instrumental in robotic guidance, automatic inspection, and process control in industrial applications. Eliminating the human eye error in detecting, observing and examining production activities of Industrial manufacturing, MV is all set to replace manual measurements and inspection. Equipped with the power of exceptional smart cameras and image processing to perform measurements and inspections deployed, MV is slated to gain considerable momentum in the food & packaging, automotive, and pharmaceutical verticals in the coming years. Owing to an increased precision in detection of objects, enhanced analysis, monitoring tolerance, and accurate component measuring, MV is perfectly positioned to reach a wider customer base.
As MV transitions to consolidate its stance in traditional corporate workflows and robotics, several new players specialized in the technology have surfaced to showcase their unique expertise with MV and its use cases. Acknowledging this transition of the new age digital technology, a panel of industry experts, CEOs, CIOs and the editorial team at Manufacturing Technology Insights have shortlisted a column of industry players who have showcased exceptional market potential in the modern MV space. The following list features the “Top 10 Machine Vision Solution Providers in APAC – 2019.”
