LMI Technologies has appointed Terry Arden as the company's CEO. He replaces Len Metcalfe who was a founder and CEO from the start of LMI Technologies. Metcalfe will remain chairman and largest shareholder staying actively involved in the industry and success of LMI.

Arden has been the CTO of LMI Technologies since joining seven years ago, before which he ran a machine vision software company. As CTO at LMI, Arden has successfully built an R&D development team which has created many of the company's successful products.

'I am excited about what Terry will bring in this next growth stage of LMI,' said Len Metcalfe, chairman of the board. 'Terry's broad experience in sensors combined with his proven leadership skills are key to our success in this challenging economy.' Arden's strong background in technology and business development will focus on LMI's continued success as a 3D sensor solution company and he will look to expand the growth of 3D sensor solutions into various new markets.

'LMI has exciting growth potential in many markets where 3D shape and/or 2D colour are determining factors in product quality. Engineering machine vision problems into simple, fully integrated "sensors that see" solutions is a key LMI capability,' said Arden.

LMI Technologies is a global provider of 2D and 3D vision sensor solutions to many industrial measurement and control processes in markets such as metal, glass, rubber and tire, transportation, livestock, automotive, and wood.
