Posted by Michael Turner on Tue, Aug 13, 2013

Machine vision systems are fast becoming a hot topic in factory automation. Pepperl+Fuchs is certainly ‘at home’ with automation technology. In fact, we're known for our innovative, cutting-edge products, including machine vision systems. But we're also known for providing our customers with an optimum solution to their operational requirements while keeping their expenses at a minimum.
