Intercon 1, a manufacturer ofcablesfor machine vision applications, has expanded capabilities at its manufacturingfacility in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China, to support its regional machine vision technology customers.
"Given the explosive growth of machine vision, robotics and automation technology manufacturers in Asia, it makes sense for us to expand our regional Intercon 1 manufacturing to support those customers," said Rich Wasielewski, president and CEO of Nortech Systems. "This facility allows us to provide faster, local support for both engineering solutions and product availability."
Located in the Jiangsu Province of China, the Suzhou facility began production of Intercon 1 Camera Link and USB 3.0 vision products in the second quarter of 2017. Central to both Beijing and Hong Kong, the facility allows Intercon1 to support growing machine vision customers throughout China with faster turnaround, reduced shipping time and cost, and local, on-demand engineering support, according to the company.
"Often, the cable is the ‘weakest link’ in the entire machine vision system architecture," said Ron Folkeringa, Nortech Systems’ Intercon 1 Group business manager. "Intercon 1 interconnect solutions eliminate unexpected downtime by ensuring the transfer of critical data, leading to superior solution performance and reliability."
