JMAK Automation

Uncompromised Excellence in Machine Vision & Computer Imaging

What's new at JMAK Automation

April 2017

JMAK announces distribution of Photoneo's PhoXi 3D Fringe Projection Sensor line in North America. Comprised of a carbon fiber frame, integrated GPU, active laser light source and Gig E the PhoXi family of sensors is designed for the factory floor.  The primary applications are bin picking and 3D inspection. Areas up to 2400 x 1800 x 2200 mm are covered with a single sensor! PhoXi 3D sensors are Linux and Windows ready and integrate easily into Halcon, OpenCV or other image processing libraries.

May 2016 

JMAK announces distribution of ShapeDrive's G3 Fringe Projection Sensor line in North America!  ShapeDrive's system is the most capable system family on the market by far with respect to speed, flexibilty of scanning areas and point cloud resolutions from 2 Million to 12 Million points per image!  ShapeDrive integrates easily in Halcon, OpenCV or other image processing libraries.

JMAK to exhibit at AIA Vision Show in Boston this spring!  We will be showing 3D sensor technologies based upon laser profiling, Time of Flight (TOF), fringe projection, interferometry, and stereo all connected to a single PC platform running MVTec HALCON.



In-Line 3D surface topology measurement on any material to better than 100 nano-meters! Measure to a few nano-meters on thin films and glass substrates.  We have demo system and can measure your parts or provide the system for you to demo........ 


JMAK announces Cognex In-Sight replacement systems.  

With the release of MVTec's MERLIC extreme ease of use vision software, Cognex's InSight smart cameras can now be replaced with a more powerful vision system based upon industry standard hardware!  Say "NO" to proprietary hardware!  Why pay $12,000 or more for a closed architecture In-Sight 5MPixel system when for about 1/3 the price you can have a system that is faster, easier to set up, and supports unlimited platform independent 2D and 3D cameras and sensors?  

Let us help unleash you from the high costs and limitations of Cognex's platforms!

March 2015

JMAK adds new line of 3D Metrology Sensors from CHROMASENS

3D-PIXA Stereo Line Scan Camera


  • Stereo color line scan camera based on allPIXA.
  • 3D height map and color image simultaneously.
  • Lateral optical resolution to 5 micron.
  • Height resolution up to 1 micron.
  • 3D height map in real time using graphic boards



The new ECCO 75 Series from SmartRay delivers higher resolution, increased accuracy, larger field of view and more 3D points scanned per second. These stylish new high-definition 3D Sensors are ideal for detailed inspection, precision guidance and high accuracy measurement applications. Like the highly successful 35 and 55 Series ECCO products, the 75 Series 3D Sensors are compact, light in weight and very economical.


Ximea announces new "xiB" PCI Express camera family!  

Based upon the CMV12000 and CMV20000 CMOSIS sensors. 20MP @ 33 fps and 12MP @ 100fps with 12 bit images!

MVTec Introduces MERLIC – A New Generation of Vision Software


  • 3D sensors with an extremely attractive price-performance ratio
  • Product versions offering high precision and speed
  • Lightweights (180 g) in ultra-compact design

The new ECCO series 3D sensors are particularly suited for measurement and testing tasks with a scan frequency of up to 6 kHz.

The ECCO product line perfectly combines light sensitivity and speed with ease of use at an attractive purchase price – the ideal solution for a broad spectrum of 3D applications.

The ultra-compact IP65 casing weighs less than 180 grams, enabling the sensor to be installed in confined spaces.

Drivers for HALCON ( GeniCam) and Cognex VisionPro are available as well as a .NET and C++ API.

We have demo gear available for loan to SI's, OEMs and end users.
