His strong leadership and sales expertise will help us continue our course of successful expansion and further strengthen our position as an internationally recognized key player in the machine vision industry," said Dr. Olaf Munkelt, Managing Director of MVTec.

At MVTec, Wiesinger will manage international sales of the company’s MERLIC software, as well as sales activities for HALCON.

Wiesinger commented: "With HALCON and MERLIC and the related services, MVTec Software GmbH has excellent potential for growth in the area of Industrial Internet of Things. I am very much looking forward to the new and exciting experiences that go along with a hardware-independent pure software and service provider."
