Machine Vision Products - STEMMER IMAGING



With Europe’s largest selection of leading machine vision technology


STEMMER IMAGING has been leading the machine vision market since 1987. It is Europe's largest technology provider in this field. In 1997 STEMMER IMAGING presented Common Vision Blox (CVB), a powerful programming library for fast and reliable development and implementation of vision solutions, which has been deployed successfully throughout the world in more than 40,000 imaging applications in various industries.

Due to the long-term practical experience in a variety of industries STEMMER IMAGING knows exactly the crucial factors for the successful and efficient solution of applications.

Based on this background STEMMER IMAGING developed the platform-independent image processing software Common Vision Blox. Thanks to its enormous versatility and flexibility, Common Vision Blox is one of the most powerful software libraries available for the development of image processing applications. The developers can chose from more than 30 CVB tools such as search tools, tools for writing and barcode identification, for gauging, surface inspection and many more.

To ensure the very highest quality of both standard and specialist cables from STEMMER IMAGING our cable production facility boasts highly-experienced experts in cable preparation and construction and a PC-based electronic cable test system. Our cable offering includes cables for cameras and frame grabbers, control and trigger cables, cables for cable carriers and robotics applications etc.

As an active member in the CameraLink, GigE-Vision and GenICam committees STEMMER IMAGING is a competent expert and plays a leading role regarding these technologies.
CameraLink cables from STEMMER IMAGING are the first European manufactured CameraLink connectors to be registered with the AIA (Automated Imaging Association).

STEMMER IMAGING's product range is complemented by a large range of accessories for use with cameras and frame grabbers, such as protective camera housings, trigger and distribution boxes etc.

STEMMER IMAGING and Common Vision Blox: Two anniversaries




Europe’s leading imaging technology provider is celebrating two anniversaries in the autumn of 2017.

Sustainable partnership with AL-KO AG secures STEMMER IMAGING's future


The Munich-based AL-KO AG, parent company of the internationally active AL-KO KOBER SE, has as of today acquired 75.04% of the shares in STEMMER IMAGING GmbH from the company's founder Wilhelm Stemmer. The successful management team acquired a share of 24.96% in the company as part of the transaction.

Detecting food contamination – a new approach


Inspection is a critical component of HACCP programs in the food industry. Hyperspectral imaging now provides a powerful complementary approach for the machine vision engineer. Its ability to identify differences in the chemical composition of organic materials opens up major new possibilities for detecting impurities in food products. Most importantly, systems are now available that operate in real time, allowing them to be used on high speed production lines.
