Vision Components is an innovative manufacturer of intelligent CCD cameras for industrial image processing. In addition to the CCD image sensor, the cameras include all functions of a conventional image processing system (such as frame grabber, video memory, processor, PLC-compatible interfaces, etc.) in a small package. A PC is no longer required.
Vision Components was founded in 1996 and has a world-wide distribution network. More than 25.000 (2003) systems have been sold to customers, including leading international firms such as Siemens, Infineon, Sony, 3M, BMW, Daimler Chrysler, Bosch, GM, GE – just to name a few..

The company’s owner and CEO, Michael Engel, is a pioneer in industrial image processing. He has been active as a successful entrepreneur in the Machine Vision industry for nearly 20 years.
