With headquarters in Germany and subsidiaries in the UK, France and Switzerland, Stemmer Imaging Ltd is Europe's largest imaging technology provider. As a powerful and cost-efficient means of implementing automatic quality assurance, image processing or Machine Vision can be used in industrial application areas such as medical imaging, industrial automation and security and traffic technology. The companies which use our image processing technologies are safe in the knowledge that our products allow 100% monitoring, even at high speeds and with stringent accuracy requirements. This gives them a cutting edge over their competitors. 

We cover a comprehensive range of components and services that are required to produce an imaging solution, and only choose suppliers which are leading international manufacturers and are at the cutting edge of vision technology. We are able to offer a wide selection of illumination systems for optimum object illumination, industrial cameras (such asline-scan, area-scan and high speed) in both monochrome and colour, lenses and optic for all major cameras and applications, 'smart' vision solutions, image acquisition technology, complete imaging systems and all the necessary accessories (power supply units, cables, connectors, stands, protective housings etc.). To link all of these hardware components, Stemmer Imaging provides powerful and modular Common Vision Blox software platform, a flexible programming library with complete toolkit enabling the user to solve almost any conceivable imaging problem. The Common Vision Blox has fast become the standard imaging software and is used throughout the world in many thousands of imaging applications. 

We also develop and manufacture customer-specific products, drawing upon a full range of in-house expertise to supply an excellent service to our customers when choosing an imaging solution. We don't just leave you to find the correct imaging solution - our experts guide you in finding the right solution and the most cost-effective combination of components before, during and after the project. At Stemmer Imaging, we think we have the expert technical know-how for planning, integration and realisation of complete solutions.

What's more, using our three decades of imaging experience, we offer complete support services to every one of our customers. If our FAQ database does not answer your query, then our support team made up of 30 qualified specialists can provide specific technical support over the telephone, via our innovative web collaboration system or we can even arrange a visit to your site if necessary. 

Imaging is our passion.

Common Vision Blox

For fast and reliable vision application development, the Common Vision Blox is the perfect software platform. Supporting all common acquisition technologies, this fast, powerful and modular programming library is based on a set of highly optimized algorithms where users can even integrate custom code to achieve total flexibility. This is an invaluable software package for interactive image processing systems and graphical programming tools. We guarantee that the Common Vision Blox offers performance, functionality and reliability you expect from an imaging software package.

Customised Image Processing Systems

The boundary between the traditional sensors used in automation solutions (e.g. light barriers) and high-tech, PC-based image processing systems has disappeared with the development of compact, easy-to-use, high-performance systems. From simple optical sensors, right through to 19-inch rack-mount PC systems, Stemmer Imaging is able to offer the best system for every type of application, thanks to a carefully chosen, comprehensive product portfolio.

Cameras for Image Processing

The selection of an appropriate camera is vital to the practicality and quality of a solution designed for industrial applications. At Stemmer Imaging, we know which camera technology is best suited to your needs. We offer Area Scan Cameras with monochrome sensors or colour sensors, 3D cameras, Area Scan Cameras for thermal imaging, and Line scan cameras with monochrome or colour sensors.

Illumination for Image processing

We make available many different types of illumination systems for image processing which employ different types of light sources and lighting technologies. Deciding which illumination is the most suitable can be constrained by the specific image processing task or by other practical considerations. As always, Stemmer Imaging's experts are on hand to define the optimal solution for each application. Our products include LED Illumination systems, Cold light sources and light guides,
High-frequency and halogen illumination unites and Diode lasers.

Optics for Image Processing

Stemmer Imaging supplies a wide variety of quality lenses and accessories from first-class manufacturers. These can be used in combination with a range of cameras for a variety of applications. Our general purpose lenses are compatible with C-mount cameras, CS-mount cameras and F-mount cameras. We also offer precision lenses, telecentric measuring lenses and macro lenses.


The right cable is an important consideration for imaging and machine vision. Technical requirements- including thermal, mechanical or chemical impacts - have to be accounted for. Stemmer Imaging has its own cable production facility boasting vastly experienced experts in cable preparation and construction. They produce high quality standard and specialist cables which are shipped from our facility every day.


A wide range of options for capturing images is required for the wide range of tasks that image processing systems are called upon to deal with. In image processing, video data from the majority of cameras is captured by a frame grabber and then transferred to the RAM of a PC. This is the most robust, reliable and flexible option for capturing video data and storing it for further processing on a PC. Stemmer Imaging supplies a comprehensive technical range of products from leading manufacturers in addition to our own frame grabbers. All components are supported by our specialist, high-performing image processing software, Common Vision Blox.


Stemmer Imaging supplies a huge range of accessories to accompany our products, including housing, mounting, tripods and cabling for cameras, filters, close-up lenses, and extension rings for lenses, as well as accessories for illumination and acquisition products.
