JULY 3--Coreco Imaging (Montreal, Quebec, Canada; www.coreco.com) has been awarded its largest contract to date by one of Europe's leading OEM suppliers of machine-vision inspection systems. This three-year contract, valued at US$3 million, is for Coreco Imaging's PC-Series machine-vision frame grabbers and software.
Machine-vision inspection tools are used both during and after the manufacturing process to capture enhanced video images of a product and to detect characteristics invisible to the human eye. These tools meet the demand for zero-defect production in a variety of products, from microscopic connections in integrated circuits to surface defects in demanding electronic and semiconductor applications.
In June, Coreco Imaging was named one of the top 100 technology companies by Canadian Business magazine.
