BOSTON - Beginning this month, the distribution of MVTec machine vision software products in Italy will be performed by IMAGE S srl (Mariano Comense, Italy). Besides the distribution of Halcon and ActivVisionTools, IMAGE S will also provide high-level technical support for MVTec’s software products.

IMAGE S, Italy’s largest machine vision component distributor, decided to complete its product-portfolio by MVTec software to meet the requirements of a growing market for highly sophisticated machine vision standard software. According to Paolo Longoni, managing director of IMAGE S, in Italy the growing demand in 3-D applications also is becoming more and more important, one of the main reasons for the decision to distribute MVTec software.

"Italy is one of the most outstanding industrial markets in Europe," says Dr. Olaf Munkelt, MVTec’s managing director. "Thus, MVTec wants to expand its sales activities in this important country. We are sure that IMAGE S will meet our requirements in a distinguished way."

Recently, the IMAGE S distribution and support team was trained by MVTec to become a member of the MVTec Certified Training Partner Program. Thus, not only the qualified distribution and first level support for all MVTec software products is guaranteed by IMAGE S right from the start, but also the qualification to hold Halcon trainings for customers.
