MVTec is setting new standards in machine vision with Halcon 22.11
MVTec - Advertorial
MVTec Software GmbH a leading international provider of machine vision software, will launch the new release (22.11) of its Halcon standard machine vision software on November 22, 2022. In this release, the Munich-based company continues to rely on the successful combination of classic machine vision methods and deep learning.
Synergy of classic machine vision and deep learning reaches a new level
The new 3D Gripping Point Detection technology is a highlight of Halcon 22.11. The new feature combines traditional 3D vision methods and AI technology. It can be used to robustly detect surfaces on any object that are suitable for gripping with suction. In contrast to classic bin-picking applications, this new technology eliminates the need to train object surfaces. This means that no prior knowledge of the specific objects is required, enabling a much faster and therefore, more cost-efficient implementation of typical bin-picking applications, such as those in the logistics industry. This approach is particularly beneficial to logistics companies.
In Halcon, MVTec is continuously developing the core technologies from both system environments: traditional and AI-based. The new release features a comprehensive toolbox with by now more than 2,100 operators. Users can thus implement powerful machine vision applications for a wide range of industry sectors, which significantly increases production efficiency in companies.
Delivering on promise to provide users with one of the world's most powerful and technologically advanced machine vision software
"With Halcon 22.11, we once more demonstrate that the targeted use of deep learning raises existing machine vision technologies to a new level. The 3D Gripping Point Detection, for example, offers an easy way to efficiently automate a complex application. With the new release, we are once again delivering on our promise to provide users with one of the world's most powerful and technologically advanced machine vision software solutions," remarks Mario Bohnacker, Technical Product Manager Halcon at MVTec.
Different editions available
The new Halcon 22.11 release comes in a Steady edition and a Progress edition. While the latter is available by subscription and has a six-month release cycle, the Steady version is available through a one-off purchase with a release cycle of two years.
One day after release, on November 23 at 9:00 AM (CET), MVTec invites to a free webinar. Mario Bohnacker (Product Manager HALCON) and Jan Janssen (Technical Content Creator) will share with you the new features and improvements of Halcon 22.11. The webinar will take approximately 90 minutes. Look forward to insights directly from the software manufacturer. Your questions will be answered at the end of the webinar.
In case you are not able attend the live webinar due to the different time zone you live in: please register anyway. After the webinar, the recording will be sent automatically and you can watch it comfortably on your demand.
