UltraLED by SCHNEIDER KREUZNACH wins Rhineland-Palatinate Innovation Award
Schneider-Kreuznach’s new UltraLED system earned the award due to its ingenuity. UltraLED systems from Bad Kreuznach help to ensure quality during production, even at extremely fast speeds. High-performance LEDs combined with Schneider-Kreuznach freeform lenses project homogeneous light fields onto the components to be controlled, enabling highly precise monitoring of the production goods with modern industrial camera systems. Applications range from checking the fill levels of milk bottles to carrying out meticulous controls on solar cells.
