Meta Vision Systems, a supplier of vision systems for automated and mechanised welding, has celebrated its 25th anniversary. The company was formed in 1984 as a spinout from a research project in Oxford University's engineering science department. Since then, Meta has diversified from vision systems for robotic welding in the automotive industry into many other areas, such as wind tower welding and pipe production.

The wind power industry is using Meta's vision systems to help fabricate towers for on and offshore wind energy, especially the larger, next-generation structures. Vision systems provide a cost effective inspection process in wind turbine manufacture, improving speed of production and reducing weld defects.

Bob Beattie, who originally joined the company in February 1985 and is now managing director, said: 'We will continue to focus on providing intelligent, laser vision systems for automated and mechanised welding and are prepared to do so anywhere in the world.'
