OCTOBER 7, 2009--FSI Technologies (Lombard, IL, USA; www.fsinet.com) and Eye Vision Technology (EVT; Karlsruhe, Germany; www.evt-web.com) have partnered to bring EyeSpector smart cameras and EyeVision machine-vision software to North America.
FSI Technologies will be the North American headquarters for EyeSpector smart cameras, which are a product of EVT and Vision Components (Ettlingen, Germany; www.vision-components.com). EyeVision software will be available as a standalone product or powering multicamera PowerEye units manufactured at the FSI factory in Lombard, IL. The FSI factory will also offer training programs and support services.
"We're excited... we think that the marketplace has been waiting for a machine-vision architecture where everything from the simplest smart camera through the largest system uses the same software engine," says Fred Turek, COO of FSI Technologies. "We always seek the finest organizations and people in our partnerships, and we certainly have found that in EVT Eye Vision Technology AG and Vision Components GmbH."
"We are very happy to have found a powerful partner for the US market, especially with FSI's strong experience in vision," adds Michael Beising, CEO of EVT.
