Darmstadt, December 21, 2020 - ISRA VISION, one of the world's top companies for industrial image processing (Machine Vision) as well as a global leader for the surface inspection of web materials and 3D machine vision applications became part of Atlas Copco's Machine Vision Solutions division through a strategic partnership announced in February 2020. Atlas Copco has since then increased the focus on Machine Vision through the acquisition of Perceptron, announced in September 2020.

Following the closing, Perceptron will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlas Copco and is a further step towards the expansion of the Machine Vision Solutions division within the Industrial Technique business area.
