Eckelmann has been developing sophisticated image processing solutions for the automation of machines and systems for 15 years. Discover exciting applications in electronics manufacturing, mechanical engineering, storage systems for pharmacies, material flow & logistics...

Image processing in reference applications


  • Camera system: compact unit of camera, lens & lighting
  • Fiducial recognition (registration marks) for position correction
  • Control of the machined contours (cut control)
  • Teach function for creating/correcting machining programs
  • Detection of bad marks (bad use marks) and markings
  • Recognition of barcodes and matrix codes
  • Wizard for automatic calibration
  • Statistical process control
  • 100% quality control in the running process

Handling and storage systems in pharmacies

  • Fully automatic calibration and setup process
  • Reading of barcodes and matrix codes
  • Measurement of drug packaging
  • OCR of the expiration date

Inline control of Braille embossing on pharmaceutical packaging

  • Checking the embossing for quantitative conformity with a freely programmable template
  • Control of the subsequent sorting process by means of an ejector switch

Residual plate detection on cutting machines

  • Capture and digitization of plane components
  • Saving of the captured contour as a DXF file

Contour and seam tracking on cutting and welding machines

  • Probing and tracing of contours (edges, kerfs, seams, etc.)
  • Dynamic determination of the trajectory
