Framos expands to North America
Framos has expanded its operations to North America and opened Framos Technologies Inc. in Ottawa, Canada.
"Our aim is to enable our customers as manufacturers, system integrators, and researchers to apply and benefit from machine vision and imaging technologies.

As one of the founding companies in imaging, we are happy to serve our customers worldwide." explains Dr. Andreas Franz, CEO of Framos about this strategic move.
Machine vision is the technology used to provide imaging-based automatic inspection and analysis for such applications as automatic inspection, process control, and robot guidance in industry. Several recent industry reports predict an ongoing increase of the Machine Vision market including a growing demand from North America. This results in an immense potential for the European high-tech provider to enable companies to improve their processes including sorting, material handling, robot guidance, and optical gauging in terms of automation as well as an increase in quality assurance and productivity.
