Unknown to many customers, a large percentage of Machine Vision laser modules and diode pumped solid state lasers are manufactured in Bangkok, Thailand by contract manufacturers. Those manufacturers are now reporting 3.5 feet of water in their factories. Thai government officials project that the flood waters will not recede for six weeks. Disruptions in the supply chain are partially due to the fact that up to 650,000 employees can’t make it to work.
For the last 40 years, PTI’s laser designs have supported Fortune 500 and other companies in the biomedical, semiconductor, industrial, defense & security markets and are bringing US design and manufacturing capabilities to the machine vision and inspection industry. Those applications include laser modules designed for 3-D profiling and mapping, dimensional scanning, high-speed road and rail inspection, Web inspection, fuorescence, and illumination.
