Munich, Germany - MVTec Software GmbH is pleased to introduce MERLIC, a new, all-in-one machine vision software product that enables users to quickly build complete solutions without programming. MERLIC offers a radically new user experience with novel interaction concepts, an image-centered user interface, and many easy-to-use tools.

To keep up with the growing world-wide demand for machine vision technology, machine makers reduce development time by increasing productivity and efficiency of their engineering teams. To enable vision engineers with minimal software programming knowledge, as well as those who don’t have time to program a complete application, MVTec introduces the new software product MERLIC. Based on MVTec’s comprehensive expertise and designed in partnership with users, MERLIC offers a rich and intuitive machine vision software package.

MERLIC is an all-in-one, PC-based solution. It provides the customer with a development and configuration environment to build complete machine vision applications with integrated PLC communication and graphical user interface. MERLIC includes many standard vision tools such as calibration, alignment, measurement, counting, checking, identification, geometry, location, and defect detection. It can also be extended with customized, user-defined tools.

A key objective in developing MERLIC was to provide a user-friendly and efficient workflow experience. MERLIC’s image-centered interface design allows developers to focus on the image rather than on complex code or parameter lists. Further enhancing the experience, MERLIC’s unique “easyTouch” concept interactively helps the user towards the final solution. For example, “easyTouch” recognizes and marks to be identified objects by simply hovering the mouse pointer over an image. Thus, the users do not have to configure complex parameters. Other intuitive features like the built-in front-end GUI designer, support for multiple cameras, support for multiple languages, and an automatic documentation generator for creating user manuals significantly speed up the development process.

“It is always our ambition to serve the machine vision market with technology-leading products and solutions.” states Olaf Munkelt, Managing Director of MVTec. “With MERLIC we can now provide the power of machine vision to a broader group of users with an innovative, easy-to-use interface.”

MERLIC is scheduled for release in 2015. The current prototype of MERLIC will be presented for the first time in public at the AUTOMATICA in Munich, Germany (June 3-6, 2014).
