Since March 2011, MVTec machine vision software products are distributed by Solimac Automation CO.,Ltd. (Bangkok) in Thailand. Besides distributing Halcon and ActivVisionTools, Solimac Automation is also providing high-level technical support for MVTec's software products.

Solimac Automation is a leading engineering company in Thailand with a long-term experience in machine vision, robotics, and automation. With its decision to distribute MVTec's software products, Solimac Automation completes its product portfolio in order to meet the requirements of a growing market for powerful machine vision standard software.

According to Pravee Kruachottikul, manager of Solimac Automation, the evolving industrial market in Thailand shows a growing demand for fast and accurate machine vision solutions and Solimac Automation is looking forward to offer MVTec's state-of-the-art software not only for the factory field, but also for customers in the educational and infrastructure field. "We will now be able to offer highly robust machine vision solutions based on MVTec's well-proven software products Halcon and ActivVisionTools," he adds.

"Thailand is a fast evolving industrial market in Southeast Asia," says Dr. Olaf Munkelt, MVTec's managing director. "Thus, MVTec expands its sales activities also in this important country. We are sure that Solimac Automation will meet our requirements in an outstanding way."

The Solimac Automation distribution and support team will be trained by MVTec to become also 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 Solimac Automation, but also the qualification to hold Halcon trainings for customers.
