PRESS RELEASE

CIM Industrial Systems achieves National Instruments' Vision Specialty status

National Instruments has announced that Alliance Partner CIM Industrial Systems has achieved Vision Specialty status, in recognition of their proven expertise in imaging and vision systems. CIM now joins only 14 companies worldwide that have achieved this accreditation and is the only Vision Specialty Alliance Partner in Scandinavia.

CIM excels in developing customised computer vision solutions and also has extensive software knowledge, with five LabVIEW Architects (the highest NI level of certification) on the team.

Carsten Watolla, Alliance Partners Business Development Manager for NI Nordics & Benelux said "I'm delighted to congratulate CIM on achieving Vision Specialty Partner status, in recognition of our long standing relationship and their deep expertise in developing advanced vision systems throughout Scandinavia".

NI Alliance Partners participating in the Vision Specialty program have proven expertise in imaging and vision systems and are identified as experts for customers who require software development, integration or consulting services.  Alliance Partners with the Vision Specialty understand system-level solutions for vision applications and can specify and integrate all of the necessary system components, including cameras, illumination, optics, image processing software and image acquisition hardware.  Furthermore, NI reviews the capabilities of each Alliance Partner participating in the Vision Specialty and uses the AIA System Integration Company Certification to achieve industry validation of machine vision excellence.
