Our Sector Groups
The VDMA Robotics + Automation Association comprises the sector groups of Integrated Assembly Solutions, Machine Vision and Robotics. In these groups, activities that match the specific requirements of each sub-sector are defined and implemented. Below you can find short profiles of the sector groups and access their portals.
Machine Vision Group
Cameras generate images that are automatically analyzed by software. Machine vision systems are all-rounders. They check quality, guide machines, control processes, identify components, read codes and deliver valuable data for optimizing production. Machine vision is constantly capturing new fields of application, also beyond the arena of manufacturing. Whether on motorways, in the retail trade, in medical practices or on sports grounds – the versatility of machine vision technology shows no limits. Always striving for higher quality, efficiciency and product safety.

Integrated Assembly Solutions
Integrated Assembly Solutions is the name of a sector which used to be called Assembly and Handling Technology. Their industry figures provide customers from virtually all sectors and regions with intelligent, economic and integrated assembly and production solutions – beyond necessary hardware such as components or machinery. Furthermore, IAS provides the "brainware" including analysis, design, and software for implementing complex production processes. They deal with a wide range of technical processes, such as connecting, transforming, handling, measuring and testing, dosing or labelling.
