Active in different markets

Imaging or machine vision is used in many different application areas - such as industrial automation, production technologies, the automotive industry, medical imaging and traffic technology but also increasingly in food technology and many other industries - as a powerful and cost effective way of implementing automatic quality assurance. Even at high speeds and with stringent accuracy requirements, machine vision allows 100% monitoring and thus strengthens the competitive edge of those companies using it.
