Moritex was founded in 1973 and is committed to developing, producing, and selling machine vision optical components such as high-end lenses and light sources for the industrial sector. Moritex has a long history of 50 years and has established a good reputation for high-quality and standard optical components, making it a leader in the industry. The company focuses on developing and selling high-precision solutions for equipment manufacturers in a wide range of industrial markets.

After the acquisition, Cognex will own all of Moritex’s assets and business. In the future, Cognex and Moritex will work together to provide customers with more advanced and comprehensive machine vision solutions. By integrating the technological and resource advantages of both parties, it will bring more possibilities to global automated manufacturing!
