Who we are. What we do.

The Smart Camera People

1995: The first Smart Camera

The invention of the VC11 Smart Camera, the first intelligent camera suitable for industrial use, was the milestone that lead to the formation of Vision Components in 1996. This innovative approach together with the mechanically and electronically outstanding hardware concept launched the success story of the Smart Camera People.

VC today? Optimal production efficiency!

Our mission is offering our customers the best solution possible. This principle is basic to all our developments and enables us to guarantee optimal performance with our Smart Cameras. 

During the recent years, our Embedded Vision portfolio

has been growing enormously along with our customers' demands. Our standard models are designed for a broad range of inspection tasks and find their use in many application areas around the world. Of course, being a reliable OEM partner, we also offer individual solutions for specific applications.
