Worldwide News Fraba Group posts strong annual result The international Fraba Group remains on a path of steady growth. In fiscal 2016, the company achieved a turnover of 26 million Euros. This represents an increase of around 6 % over the previous year. This turnover was achieved through the efforts of 190 employees located at offices in Europe, Asia and the USA. Two important factors in the success were the introduction of the high-resolution magnetic 16-bit Ixarc self-contained encoders and the rollout of an innovative new family of magnetic kit encoders, an important innovation in the field of motor feedback. The new kit encoders are notably easy to install and give manufacturers of servomotors a completely new alternative to established feedback devices such as resolvers and more expensive optical feedback systems. “With these innovative products and exciting new developments in the pipeline, we expect significantly higher growth for 2017, which we have already seen in our results for the fourth quarter of 2016,” said Christian Leeser, Fraba Group’s majority shareholder and CEO. www.fraba.com A CLASS OF ITS OWN NEW Embedded Vision Europe Conference Fotolia optoNCDT 1420 Laser triangulation sensors for fast and precise measurements Compact and user-friendly: easy integration into confined spaces Robust and long-life design Repeatability from 0.5µm Small light spot Analog and digital outputs Unique ease of use via web browser Presets for various surfaces Embedded vision has evolved from a buzzword to a lasting trend that bears an enormous potential both for European suppliers of vision technology as well as for product developers in customer industries. In order to show the capability of hardware and software platforms; to present applications and markets for embedded vision and to create a platform for the exchange of information the EMVA and the trade show Vision host the first European conference on Embedded Vision, the Embedded VisionN Europe, from 12-13 October 2017 at the ICS International Congress Center Stuttgart right next to Stuttgart Airport. Since embedded vision is a key technology for a whole generation of new products from all areas conference participants are expected to come from a whole variety of industries, including robotics, agriculture, automotive, factory automation, security/surveillance, logistics and retail, medical and healthcare, and many more.
