For those who are unfamiliar, the miniaturization of camera lenses is difficult. Machine vision cameras, used in the identification of items during the manufacturing processes, require a small camera that can be used in the process of identification. Machine vision cameras can be made smaller by using metamaterial lenses. These lenses help the cameras work in severe conditions and adjust in any manufacturing environment.
According to Research and Markets, there is a growing demand for machine vision cameras in the automobile and electronics industry. The use of metamaterial lenses can help reduce the size of cameras and provide flexibility for data capturing and identification solutions, resulting in growth of the market.
Among key vendors, we have: Basler, Cognex Corporation, KEYENCE, OMRON, and Teledyne Technologies.
