Approximately two-thirds of the visitors will come from Germany. Exhibitors will include representatives from Israel, Japan, Canada, Pakistan, Switzerland, Slovenia and the United States. About 60 percent of the exhibitors will be component manufacturers while the remainder specialize in complete machine vision systems.
The exhibits are aimed primarily at users from the electronics/electrical engineering industry, the automotive industry, the automotive component supply industry and the metalworking industry. Also represented will be plastics processing, aerospace, test measuring and control engineering, and information and communication technology. There also will be exhibits applicable to non-industrial machine vision users.
Advanced Imaging magazine will be on hand. In addition to our booth, we'll also be presenting our First Readers' Choice Awards. Readers responded to our call for nominees earlier this year. Twenty-one companies received nominations in six different categories—cameras, illumination, optics, processing, software and sensors. You can read about the winners in this issue and, if you're at VISION, attend the awards ceremony.
Correction: The story "NIR-SWIR Imaging: From Health Care to Industrial Applications" in the September issue had a mislabeled caption. On page 11, the caption should have read: Figure 2—3D section of a fingertip, with top portion removed. The smaller images on left show 2D images at the Y and Z planes and are used to select where the 3D cutaway plane occurs.
