JANUARY 2--On January 1, 2007, MVTec Software GmbH (Munich, Germany) opened MVTec, LLC, in Cambridge, MA, USA, as a US company. MVTec is the manufacturer of standard machine-vision software on the world market and cooperates with more than 30 distribution companies around the world. The company sees a large new potential for the North American market. Therefore, in 2007, MVTec will provide a distinct push for the seven American distributor partners. "Primarily, MVTec will assist our distributors in their customer support, but at the same time it will impart knowledge about this technology," said Heiko Eisele, president of the newly founded company.

Currently, one area of interest of MVTec is 3-D machine vision for robotics (robot vision). "In this regard, we received a lot of inquiries from US system integrators looking for standard solutions in 3-D robotics for on-site production," said Olaf Munkelt, managing director at the MVTec headquarters in Munich, Germany.
