Cognex Receives Over $300,000 from Leading Auto Maker for Part Traceability Initiative
NATICK, MA, August 11, 2008--Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX) announced today that a leading Japanese auto manufacturer will use Cognex In-Sight® ID readers for part tracking at its engine assembly plant in the United States. Cognex has already received orders totaling more than $300,000 from this customer, with additional orders expected in the near future.
The customer will use Cognex In-Sight 5110 ID code readers to read 2D data matrix codes marked on engine parts. The codes are used to track individual components from machining centers through final assembly, providing a verifiable path through each critical production process, and ensuring that the correct parts have been used in each engine.
“Tracking parts and components throughout manufacturing and assembly enables manufacturers to isolate the source of production problems quickly, and control costs,” said Dr. Robert J. Shillman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cognex. “For this reason, manufacturers around the world are increasingly investing in traceability initiatives, and Cognex ID readers with ID Max software provide the most robust and reliable ID code-reading performance available.”
