Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
WALDKIRCH, Germany, Nov. 26, 2015 — Sick AG and MVTec Software GmbH are expanding their collaboration by integrating their hardware and software in machine vision systems.

In addition to its own algorithms, Sick will use MVTec's Halcon image processing library for vision sensors, 3D cameras and vision systems. Halcon is a comprehensive standard software with an integrated development environment for machine vision applications. Until now, cooperation between the two companies was limited to 3D cameras.

"Halcon is a high-performance software for image processing," said Detlef Deuil, product manager 2D vision & image-based code readers. "For system integrators, it is very easy to use the high-quality image data and implement comprehensive vision solutions. Our customers in the various different industry sectors benefit from the ease with which Halcon can be integrated into the Sick vision products."

Sick's product portfolio includes products ranging from compact sensors to high-speed cameras.
