Cognex Launches Acquisition Alliance

Natick, MA-Cognex Corp., maker of vision software and vision tools, has announced the launch of the Cognex Acquisition Alliance. Through the alliance, Cognex establishes technical and marketing relationships with camera manufacturers. This strategic partnership program provides the company’s mutual customers with best-in-class, integrated machine vision solutions.

Benefits of the program include rapid integration and qualification of new partner cameras with Cognex VisionPro software through vendor self-verification and enhanced customer service through product cross training.

The following suppliers have already joined the alliance: Allied Vision Technologies, Basler AG, Dalsa Corp., e2V, Imperx Inc., JAI, Point Grey Research Inc. and Prosilica Inc. “We are excited to have these premier camera vendors taking part in this initiative and expect additional partners to be added shortly,” says Markku Jaaskelainen, executive vice president and vision software business unit manager.

“We are honored to be part of the Cognex Acquisition Alliance, which effectively formalizes the strong relationship that we have built with their organization over the last several years,” says Michael Gibbons, product marketing manager at Point Grey Research. “We strongly believe that this program will yield valuable benefits for our mutual customers. By providing a process for fast and easy delivery of Cognex configuration files (CCF) for all supported Point Grey cameras, we can maximize product compatibility and minimize integration issues.”
