evoVIU - Smart Camera


Vision and Inspection Unit

Quality inspection during the forming process

Check the quality of your component in particularly hard-to-reach places on your production line and at the same time evaluate the wear and tear of the tool.

Recognize and track your circuit board via laser codes and thus track the material flow from the coil to the end product in your production.

Recognize the formation of cracks early on during production and thus accelerate the maintenance process.

Check the weld seam and quality directly during or after the process step.

Measure the contours of your circuit board and relate the distances to each other.

Agricultural economics

Check your cultivation directly in the field or in the initial sorting for deformation and undesirable developments. Simplify your sorting process through the optical predefinition and thus relieve your staff.

The degree of ripeness of the fruit can be determined by changing the color and pattern. In addition, the color check helps with the sorting into the different quality levels – and characteristics.

Whether directly in the field or in the warehouse. Detect and combat pests on your products at an early stage and thus protect your entire inventory.

Protect your equipment from foreign bodies before they penetrate into machine areas.


Use evoVIU to support you in sorting different cutting patterns of the tree trunk.

Assess the number and positions of the branches more quickly in order to generate the optimal cutting pattern and generate as little waste as possible.

Recognize the fungal attack early on before processing and thus improve the quality of the building material.

Say war on pests like bark beetles and take care of infested material. Make sure that stocks are not additionally infested.


Do you need an image processing system for your research? Just ask us, we will be happy to support you.

You teach image processing and would like to try out new intuitive systems. Perhaps evoVIU can support you and increase students’ interest in image processing.

Technical overview


Introduction of evoVIU

The area of application of the evoVIU begins where it is necessary to look at the decisive detail. For example, in the quality inspection during the forming process. Often only micrometers decide between the target and the faulty part. The SmartCam evoVIU is being developed in order to continuously increase the quality of the components and thus reduce rejects at the same time and is intended to recognize, measure and evaluate defined quality features during material processing. At the same time, a possibility is created for maintenance to always have the system and the individual tool in view. Vision and inspection are thus combined in one tool: evoVIU - evopro Vision and Inspection Unit

Interface to Industry 4.0

The smart camera starts where the system is needed in industry. Can be used immediately and quickly. Equipped with the latest technological standards and interfaces, the VIU also tries to position itself as a bridge between efficient production and the age of digitization. The clear goal here is to create an inspection tool that can work with both existing and efficient existing systems at the same time. By integrating Ethernet, WiFi, IO-Link and 5G, the VIU relies on interfaces that are recognized, efficient and can therefore also be used in places where communication was previously the focus.

Brings light into the dark

With the Loxi1-X lighting board, VIU has taken its first step in the multi-physical measurement of component carriers. For image processing, this offers the possibility of using any number of individually adaptable light schemes to ensure optimal illumination of the test object. The declared goal is not only the manual setting of the light with readjusted auto focus, but also our idea for "AutoLight". A self-developing understanding of the camera integrated into "machine learning" for the optimal lighting conditions of the component. This is initially ensured by the additionally integrated time-of-light sensors, which recognize and process the position and distance of the wearer. The Loxi-LED can be expanded individually and at the same time. Currently, the optimal wavelengths for each test object can be used from ten different LED color variants without changing the camera position or settings.


The right evoVIU dashboard expands your options:

No active work in the press shop is necessary for setting the image

Stay flexible ...

Coupling and fastening also needs to be learned. Especially for forming press lines, the bottom is docked to all common coupling systems. If you need a special attachment, just speak to us, we will adapt this for you individually.

... and set standards in the process

Upon delivery, the VIU is already 5G-ready and offers the option of using software updates as your own mobile sensor in the industrial environment. If your production grows into the new age, the VIU simply grows with it.
