Specim FX series was recognized by the judges of the annual Vision Systems Design Innovators Awards program earlier today at Automate 2017 tradeshow held in Chicago. The judging panel consisted of esteemed experts from system integrator and end-user companies. Specim FX series was honored with a Silver-level award.

The new Specim FX Series hyperspectral cameras, FX10 for Visible Near Infrared Region (VNIR) and FX17 for Near Infrared Region (NIR), give the system integrators the tools to utilize hyperspectral imaging for the first time both with the performance and at the cost that meets the industrial requirements. For industrial on-line quality control, inspection and process monitoring they provide more detailed chemical, physical and biological information, thus resulting in more reliable inspection and sorting, and savings in waste, money and time.

Georg Meissner, the Managing Director of Specim said “To be awarded and recognised for innovation by the machine vision professionals is a great honour and a confirmation of Specim’s strategy to focus with the new FX series to industrial segments and serve the needs of machine vision integrators. We believe that hyperspectral imaging products are going to take a firm place in machine vision for process quality measurement.”

Alan Bergstein, publisher of Vision Systems Design said “This prestigious program allows Vision Systems Design to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products and services in the vision and image processing industry. Our 2017 Honorees are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact in the industry.”
