MAR acquires Industrial Photonics, boosts inspection technologies

MACHINERY Automation & Robotics has acquired Industrial Photonics, which provides custom engineered inspection solutions for process lines.

Its solutions are used in applications including machine vision systems, industrial near infrared (NIR) systems, and chemical sensors to detect odour profiles for food processing and other industrial applications.

It emphasises integrating technologies into seamless solutions, and its partners include Opto Engineering, PPT Vision, NIR Technologies and Next Instruments Group.

According to Machinery Automation & Robotics, the technologies and engineering resources of Industrial Photonics is complementary to its own existing strengths in vision and advanced sensing technology.

All existing Industrial Photonics staff have been retained, and MAR will continue to operate and support Industrial Photonics brands.
