Based in Germany, EnShape uses area-scan technology for fast image captures in high resolution eliminating the need to move objects to the front of laser scanning devices. The company’s team 3D vision engineers will be part of a new Cognex engineering centre based in Jena, Germany.
AQSense is the developer of a library of field-tested 3D vision tools. The Spain-based developer also has a configuration software package that assist customers to set up their 3D vision application. Software engineers from the company joined Cognex’s 3D engineering team back in 2016.
“We see a growing number of opportunities for 3D vision in industries such as automotive, consumer electronics and logistics, to name just a few,” said Joerg Kuechen, vice president of vision products for Cognex. “We believe that our acquisition of these two companies, especially the addition of two highly experienced new engineering teams, will accelerate our ability to bring innovative new 3D products to market.”
