US firm Imaging Solutions Group (ISG) has been bought by Jadak, a business unit of Novanta. Through the acquisition, Jadak has added ISG’s smart cameras and imaging systems to its product portfolio.

Imaging Solutions Group, based in Rochester, New York, manufactures video imaging platforms and smart cameras for industrial, medical, and OEMs. Its Allegro smart camera series contain an embedded FPGA, and are compact, high resolution, and high performance.

Jadak is a tier one supplier to the healthcare market, with a majority of business coming from medical device manufacturers. It builds embedded machine vision into medical devices, such as clinical analysers, surgical machines and assay readers. The ISG acquisition gives Jadak much more of a footprint in industrial machine vision.

In 2014, Jadak was acquired by Novanta, then the GSI Group, for $93.5 million. In 2017, the company released its Clarity 2.0 machine vision software package; it also has a portfolio of smart cameras.

‘ISG's intelligent cameras will provide our customers with a broader and more robust line of embedded machine vision and image analysis solutions,’ said Janie Goddard, president of Jadak. ‘Our expanded and proven portfolio of cameras provides us with increased competency in optical, mechanical and electrical design, delivering accurate and repeatable results with sensitivity to capture images in low light or high motion.’
