For the fourth straight year, Vision Systems Design held its Innovators Awards program, which celebrates the disparate and innovative technologies, products, and systems found in the machine vision and image processing market. This year Specim literally struck gold as Specim IQ was nominated a Gold Level honoree for 2018.

Submissions were judged on originality; innovation; their impact on designers, systems integrators or users; whether they fulfilled a new market need; leveraged a novel technology and/or increased productivity.

To celebrate the fourth annual Innovators Awards Program, Vision Systems Design held a reception on the show floor of The Vision Show 2018 on April 10, 2017, where Specim was on hand to accept their awards from John Lewis, Editor-in-Chief and Alan Bergstein Publisher of Vision Systems Design.
