Company Information/Order

Ahrensburg (euro adhoc) - Ahrensburg, March 3, 2011 - Basler AG - one of the globally leading companies in vision technology - has received an order in the single-digit million euro range for inspection systems from the world's biggest manufacturer of LCD glass for flat panel displays. The proven and in the market so far unsurpassed performance of Basler Sensic inspection systems was crucial for the contract award to Basler. So far more than 150 units of Basler Sensic inspection systems were installed in the LCD industry.

"This order marks another milestone for our solutions business and confirms our leading position in the inspection of LCD glass for flat panel displays", explains Dr. Dietmar Ley, CEO of Basler AG. "With this solution we help our customer with establishing his leading production technology for LCD glass in a new regional market."

In the past years, Basler AG received regularly major orders for the delivery of LCD inspection systems to Korea, Taiwan, and Japan. The systems ordered now are for the first time intended to be installed in China. The country represents a strongly growing sales market that all leading LCD manufacturers want to address in the coming years with own production facilities newly installed on site.

The portfolio streamlining in the solutions segment was successfully terminated with the sales of the product lines for the inspection of optical media, solar wafers, and rubber/elastomer sealings. The solutions segment is now fully focusing on the inspection solutions for the LCD and PV thin film industries.

Basler Vision Technologies is a leading global developer and manufacturer of high grade cameras for industrial and medical applications, traffic control systems, and video surveillance. Product design is driven by industry requirements. The cameras offer easy integration, compact sizes, and excellent price/performance ratio. These are decisive factors for Basler's present-day leading position in the field of GigE cameras. Basler has more than 20 years of experience in image processing and offers one of the widest product portfolios in the industry. The company employs approximately 300 employees in its headquarters in Ahrensburg, Germany, and in the subsidiaries in the USA, Singapore, Taiwan, Korea, and Japan.
