The Vision Award was established by Messe Stuttgart with the purpose of awarding the highly innovative power of the industry. Solutions which ensure more quality, efficiency, cost reduction or user-friendliness for the user are awarded. The 18th annual Vision Award went to Sick AG, based in Waldkirch, Germany, for the ColorRanger 3-D camera.
The ColorRanger E combines color and 3-D capabilities in one high-speed camera. By measuring both the 3-D shape and the color of objects and parts, more reliable decisions can be made to allow roduction plants to improve their up-time, throughput, and product quality. The ColorRanger E replaces the need for several different cameras for the same task, which reduces the solution cost and complexity.
