Smart Vision Lights Products Recognized for Excellence in Machine Vision by Vision Systems Designs 2023 Innovators Awards Program

Norton Shores, Mich., May 23, 2023 Smart Vision Lights (SVL), a leading designer and manufacturer of high-brightness LED lights for industrial applications, is pleased to announce that two of its products have been recognized for excellence in machine vision by Vision Systems Design’s 2023 Innovators Awards program. The judging panel consisted of esteemed experts from system integrator and end-user companies.

DoAll light for automated inspection on a robot arm.

The DoAll Light, designed for robotic inspection, received the platinum award, while Dual OverDrive technology, found in Lightgistics Series lights, received the bronze. The award program recognizes the most innovative products and services in the vision and image processing industry.  

The DoAll light, designed to be mounted at the end of a robotic arm, combines six machine vision lights into one easy-to-use multifunctional product. This offers nearly limitless lighting combinations, making it perfect for performing multiple inspections where optimal lighting differs by each inspection type.

“The DoAll is a game-changer for highly automated robotic workcells, ranging from large-scale automotive assembly to smaller electronic assembly and more. It provides the perfect illumination for each inspection, regardless of the type,” says Dave Spaulding, President and CEO of Smart Vision Lights. “It truly lives up to its name by doing it all, ensuring the right light for any automated inspection.”

Dual OverDrive technology for high speed imaging

Dual OverDrive technology from Smart Vision Lights, incorporated in the Lightgistics Series lights, delivers up to ten times the output of traditional continuous operation. This powerful output ensures intensely bright light even with glare-reducing polarizers, making it easier to capture clear images at high speeds.

“With our Dual OverDrive technology, we’ve pushed the boundaries of what’s possible in high-speed imaging. It provides unparalleled brightness, ensuring that clear images can be captured even at the fastest speeds,” said Spaulding.

“The Vision Systems Design team would like to congratulate Smart Vision Lights for their score in the 2023 Innovators Awards program,” says Linda Wilson, Editor in Chief of Vision Systems Design. “Each year this unbiased and increasingly competitive program aims to celebrate the most innovative products and systems in machine vision. The Smart Vision Lights team should be very proud.”

“Being recognized by the Vision Systems Design’s Innovators Awards is a great honor for us,” added Spaulding. “It’s a testament to our team’s ongoing commitment to innovate and deliver superior products in the industry.”
