SVL | February 2019
Show Us Your Parts at Automate!

Coming to Automate April 8-11? Bring your application samples, large or small, with you to booth #8135. Our lighting engineers and applications experts will be on hand throughout the show to examine parts, discuss your application goals, and share advice on possible solutions. Email us to schedule a time to talk with our team.
Developing an effective lighting system can be a difficult task - especially given the range of possible choices between dark field, bright field, structured light, photometric, and other 3D lighting techniques. At Automate, SVL will show you how to illuminate your toughest machine vision applications.
And that's not all you'll find at booth #8135. Smart Vision Lights will also be introducing several new products and innovative tools at this year's show.
We look forward to seeing you and your samples at Automate!
