G3 standardization initiative welcomes VDMA Machine Vision
"Machine Vision Standards are accelerating the use and hence, growth of machine vision", said Klaus-Henning Noffz, member of the board of VDMA Machine Vision, on the occasion of the signing. "VDMA Machine Vision with its expertise and membership strength in system integration is looking forward to share this knowledge within the G3 initiative. I am happy to now officially join the international cooperation agreement on global coordination of machine vision standardization."
"This is a positive step in a sense that more associations join the idea of commonly promoting standards which is beneficial for the development of the whole industry", said Jochem Herrmann, EMVA board member on behalf of the three founding associations of G3.
The signing of VDMA's joining the international standardization corporation took place exactly five years to the day after the founding signature of G3.
Standardization - key to success and wider use of machine vision
Standards facilitate the use of machine vision and integration of individual components into a complete system with optimum functionality. They cut down on development time and investment costs and also accelerate time-to-market. Standardization enables companies, in particular SMEs, to act globally and to better plan medium-term product developments. Customers benefit from long-term supply guarantees price stability, comparability and exchangeability of products and components. In addition, they facilitate the internal development of know-how and experience.
