Control 2020: Image Processing – a Dynamic Issue

Control 2020: Image Processing – a Dynamic Issue

Trade fair promoters P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG extend their invitation to the next world’s leading trade fair for quality assurance (QA) in Stuttgart:the 34th Control international trade fair for quality assurance will take place from 5 to 8 May 2020 and will focus attention on image processing as a thematic expansion of QR systems and software in hall 8.

As the world’s most important business platform and the globally leading trade fair for industrial QA, Control draws the international market leaders to Stuttgart. The event has long been a driving force for the German, European and international markets. In 2020, the EMVA (European Machine Vision Association) will hold the Control Vision Talks as a forum for optical measuring technology and image processing for the fifth time in cooperation with trade journal inVISION and event promoters P. E. Schall GmbH & Co.


Industrial Image Processing Well Represented

Subject matter covering 3D image processing, optical metrology, computed tomography (CT), X-ray and spectral imaging will be prominently featured at the EMVA Presentation Forum in hall 8, and will deal with fundamentals as well as new technologies. Quick response systems (QR), which are used widely and are still undergoing further development above all in Asia, will also be presented in hall 8.


Next Level Quality Assurance!

The issue of quality assurance permeates all production processes in all industries. The organisers of the Control trade fair are keeping pace where transformation and quality improvement are concerned, and are advancing to the next level with cutting-edge product and service offerings which provide users with new approaches and comprehensive, genuine solutions to all problems related to industrial QA: next level quality assurance! Users from all industry sectors find the right equipment for zero-defects production at Control – from mechatronic measuring technology and industrial image processing solutions right on up to robot-aided, consistently digitalised QA solutions for the production of diverse variants in flexible lot quantities. The trade fair introduces digitalisation to routine daily practice and makes it possible for users of test technology to conduct closed-loop data exchange in networked processes.


Control 2020: High Levels of Internationalism

Control’s trade fair concept supports a direct exchange of technical information amongst suppliers and users, and assures the transfer of technology all the way down to the depths of routine daily production. Statements issued by trade fair participants in 2019 underscored the importance of Control as a globally recognised, leading technology, communication and business platform for all aspects of quality assurance in industrial production. The international market leaders meet here to discuss the issue of zero-defects production with well-informed, highly interested visitors from actual industrial practice, and to develop new solutions. 90% of the expert visitors are directly involved in procurement decisions. For numerous exhibiting companies, Control is the year’s most important trade fair – an industry event which has become increasingly international and hosts a 33% share of foreign exhibitors.


Technology Transfer via World-Class Supplementary Programme

The trade fair promoters are rounding out the event with a world-class supplementary program. The special show held by the Fraunhofer IPA will deal with “Trends in Quality Assurance – Digitalisation, Automation and AI in Practice”. Trade fair visitors are provided with the opportunity of gathering information in a targeted fashion concerning pioneering technologies and the possible uses of modern measuring and test technology. Demonstrations offer insights into how concepts involving digitalisation and automation can be applied in practice by means of, amongst other things, image and signal processing, as well as artificial intelligence methods such as machine learning. Beyond this, trade fair visitors are can identify and evaluate AI applications for their own tasks.


Special Shows, Forum and Special Trade Fair Guide

The special show on “Contactless Measuring Technology” will be held already for the 16th time by the Fraunhofer Vision Alliance and will present the latest developments and technologies in the field of contactless measuring and test technology. The special trade fair guide for industrial image processing and vision systems will be available once again. Last but not least, the exhibitor forum will also be highlighted again in 2020 as a communication platform. Further information, exhibitor statements and a review of Control 2019 can be accessed at
