18th Special Show for “Contactless Measuring Technology” at Control 2024

Control International trade fair for quality assurance 8ac9edbb8b42634c777c0e9f9fb236f6c51a7987 uai

Within the context of Control 2024 as the leading international trade fair for quality assurance taking place in Stuttgart from 23 to 26 April 2024, the Fraunhofer Vision Business Unit will hold the special show on “Contactless Measuring Technology” for the 18th time in cooperation with P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG.

The special show will present a broad spectrum of innovative technologies, applications and system components from the field of contactless measuring and test technology on roughly 300 square metres of floor space, and will provide users with initial guidance in selecting the most suitable technology for their own testing tasks. Companies, research institutes and universities who are interested in participating are requested to submit their exhibit proposals to the Fraunhofer Vision Business Unit at vision@fraunhofer.de by the 13th of October, 2023 (title and brief description).

The special show on “Contactless Measuring Technology” has established itself in equal measure amongst exhibitors and trade fair visitors in recent years as a communication platform and marketplace for innovations, and in the meantime has become an integral part of the of the Control trade fair. The performance and flexibility of modern systems are advancing steadily. Ever larger scale ranges are being covered and new applications are being penetrated, thus making it difficult for users to orient themselves within the market. The special show provides visitors with an orientation aid for the selection of a suitable technology for mastering their own testing tasks.

As is the case every year, presentations should once again include the latest developments, as well as innovative measuring and test systems which function in a contactless manner. On the one hand, attention should be focussed on testing or measurement of external or visible features of components and materials. In this respect, relevant technologies include light section techniques, band projection, photogrammetry, white light interferometry, holography, time-of-flight and confocal measuring processes, for example. Furthermore, a platform is also provided for measuring and testing technologies for material interiors that work in the non-visible range of the wavelength spectrum, such as thermography, X-ray, ultrasound and terahertz, as well as spectroscopic methods such as hyperspectral imaging.

Not least of all, the special show also provides an opportunity for the presentation of exhibits on the topics of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the field of image processing, because potential users have a great need for information in this area.
