JANUARY 20--The Acuity CiMatrix Division of Robotic Vision Systems Inc. (RVSI; Nashua, NH; www.rvsi.com) has received a $300,000 order for its Visionscape machine-vision products for use by a diversified food company for use in a North American automation program to improve packaging uniformity. RVSI's machine-vision products will be used to verify defect-free packaging in a high-speed environment.

"The customer switched to RVSI from another machine-vision vendor three years ago and, since that time, has aggressively expanded its factory-automation programs," said Ray England, vice president--worldwide sales and marketing for Acuity CiMatrix. "The customer's requirement is for machine-vision systems that deliver maximum uptime in a high-speed packaging environment where package uniformity is an 'absolute must.' Our Visionscape family meets the customer's continuing requirement for flexible and scalable equipment that can be readily programmed for use across multiple applications and packaging environments. This newest order is confirmation that we continue to meet the customer's exacting demands."

RVSI's Visionscape vision processor is a high-performance vision system in a single PCI slot, featuring three times the processing speed of previous generations. This platform is ideal for OEMs, system integrators, and end users seeking a powerful, high-speed inspection system that addresses a wide range of applications in the automotive, electronics, packaging, pharmaceutical, and semiconductor industries. The key to the board's high performance is RVSI's vision processing acceleration ASIC designed specifically for machine vision.
