Opto Engineering Machine Vision Cameras

Cameras play a major role in defining the stability and reliability of a vision system, as well as its overall performance, and it is no coincidence that design often starts with the camera itself. Opto Engineering® produces and selects high-quality cameras that perfectly match its renowned optics and illuminators to provide a complete bundle of machine vision components: with two decades of experience in the world of industrial automation, we can assist our customers in building a fast, reliable and cost-effective vision system.

Opto Engineering Telecentric Lenses

Telecentric lenses represent the core business for Opto Engineering®. These lenses benefit from two decades of Research & Development, resulting in a wide range of components with a diverse and ever-growing number of applications.

Opto Engineering 360° Lenses

One of the most recurring needs in the machine vision industry is to be able to fully inspect an object with as few cameras as possible.
This request is becoming more and more common in a variety of markets, like the beverage, pharmaceutical and automotive industries.
Opto Engineering® designed a line of incredible 360° optics where one image is enough to view the top and side of an object or the inside of a cavity.
Most of these special optics are unique designs patented by Opto Engineering®, with exceptional build quality and unmatched optical performance.

Opto Engineering Infrared & UV Lenses

Illumination outside the visible spectrum is used in a wide variety of sectors including defense, security/surveillance, industrial, medical and R&D. Applications include tracking/targeting systems, predictive maintenance, monitoring of high temperature industrial processes, thermography, flame detection, quality control/inspection. Opto Engineering® offers a wide variety of high-resolution IR optics for both cooled and uncooled IR cameras spanning all IR spectral bands.
