Participation in Trade Fairs


Fraunhofer's Business Unit Vision at Trade Fairs

The Central Office coordinates the participation in trade fairs of the Vision members. Every year at the trade fair Control, Fraunhofer's Business Unit Vision presents a range of new subjects focusing on image processing and measuring systems designed for production quality assurance.

Skills and Competencies Covered:

  • Fast Inline Systems
  • Inspection and Characterization of Surfaces
  • Analysis of Microstructures
  • Optical 3D Measuring
  • Heat Flux Thermography and X-Ray Techniques for the Analysis of Invisible Defects
  • X-Ray Tomography for Analysis and Measurement of Hidden Structures
  • Terahertz Imaging
  • Ultrasound
  • Polarisation
  • Acoustical Quality Assurance

Special Show Contactless Measuring Technology

In cooperation with the company P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG, Fraunhofer's Business Unit Vision has also been organizing the Special Show entitled "Contactless Measuring Technology" at the Control since 2005. The Special Show illustrates the productivity of the contactless measuring technology by means of selected exhibits. Furthermore, it contributes to increased transparency, acceptance and further dissemination of new technologies.

Control: Special Show Contactless Measuring Technology


The Central Office of Fraunhofer's Business Unit Vision invites companies, research institutes and universities to take part in the Special Show. The Show presents innovative and up and coming systems that implement contactless measuring technologies, such as

  • Light section
  • Fringe projection
  • Photogrammetry
  • White-light interferometry
  • Holography
  • Confocal measuring technology
  • Measuring technologies, working in the invisible range of the wave spectrum, such as thermography, x-ray technology or terahertz measuring.

Appropriate measuring systems depend on the forward-looking development and the availability of suitable sensors, cameras and components. Therefore, the Special Show will also provide an opportunity for the presentation of future-oriented solutions in these areas.
