In The News


Lumenera was recently featured in Lighting Up The Future, a Imaging and Machine Vision Europe article that discusses the progress of Lumenera after 12 years in the business.

Below is a excerpt from this interesting article:

While many vision companies are currently making a big effort to investigate and invest in newer markets such as transportation and life sciences, Lumenera sees these sectors as part of its DNA. 'That's what we have been doing since the outset - automation, medical, traffic, and biometrics,' says Longval. Nowadays they are seen as growing markets but for us they are traditional areas. That was very much our intention from the outset - to serve as many markets as possible and keep the company diverse.'

Lumenera Provides Superior Quality Color Images For Paint Inspection Applications Using the Lg11059C and Lm11059C Cameras

How does a manufacturer ensure the products they produce match the
exact color requirements for the customer? How does one guarantee
color consistency across all components of a product over its life cycle?
Manufacturers are often building products months apart that require the
exact same color as a previous build.

Recently a well-known car manufacturer as well as a large consumer electronics manufacturer turned to Lumenera to obtain the results they needed. The solution is pantone color matching using high resolution, quality cameras that can provide excellent, consistent color reproduction in the images produced by the camera.

Industrial, Not Consumer Grade

The acquisition of a camera starts with fully understanding all of the application requirements. This ensures that the camera selected for the project will best match the specifications for the required output– whether it’s a high resolution image with excellent color reproduction or an image with high dynamic range and low noise, to ensure the most accurate results for analysis.

In your search for the ideal camera, one of the questions you may find yourself asking is “Can I use a consumer camera instead of an Industrial-grade one?” Our answer “Sure you can, but should you?”

Consumer cameras are not designed to be as robust as industrial cameras. One of the main design differences is industrial cameras use electronic shutters, while consumer cameras use mechanical shutters that have a much shorter life span, and higher failure rate. Some may think an off-the-shelf digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) will work for their application, but in reality these cameras are not built to withstand intense use.
