inspect news 01 2017



Dear Reader,

After a very dynamic 2016 that was busy right through to the end, then a holiday season that felt very short including 2017’s New Year’s packed efficiently into a weekend, the business of doing business is already well underway.
For this New Year we wish you good health and success and that the positive trends become a permanent fixture and negative ones simply disappear never to be seen again.  
Of course at the beginning of a year we all have our New Year’s resolutions. Any resolutions that have made into this week are definitely worth keeping up. We editors at inspect have set ourselves the task to provide you, our readers, with good, competent and factual information that is tailored to your specific requirements. Our current newsletter proves that this resolution has made it into this week and therefore we will definitely be keeping it up. Of course this goal doesn’t only apply to the regular newsletter, there’s the online portal and our specialist magazine too.
This newsletter includes product features and reports which show that 2016 was a year where product innovations and corporate news were being disclosed right up to the last moment. We have also picked out two articles for you which we think you will find very much worth reading. One provides information about FPGA technology for embedded vision projects and the second article describes how modern ergonomic microscopes can contribute to quality control.

Enjoy your reading.

Best Regards

Bernhard Schroth
