Thomas Feichtner appointed OPT director of sales

Share this on social media:

Since 1990, he has not just accompanied the growth of the Machine Vision industry in Europe but taken a key role in it. As head of sales of a Japanese OEM of lenses for industrial cameras he came across the great variety of machine vision applications and satisfied thousands of customers and distributors across Europe with his competence, endurance, and authoritative manner.

“We are glad to have Thomas Feichtner supporting our already significant growth in turnover of OPT’s illuminations, lenses, industrial PCs, and software libraries in Europe. Thanks to his industry experience, technical expertise, and his outstanding customer orientation he is a great fit to OPT. Our customers may already be looking forward to the collaboration with him and further members of our sales team!”, explains Sean Wang, Director EMEA of OPT and Thomas Feichtner adds:

“The broad, high-quality, and cost-effective product portfolio of OPT Machine Vision opens endless opportunities in sales. In combination with the impressive engagement of OPT’s more than 800 employees, who may develop customized illuminations and optics even for smallest quantities, I am looking forward to leveraging the considerable market potential.”

Last week at the Vision in Stuttgart, OPT Machine Vision appeared already with Thomas Feichtner, Sean Wang and 8 further sales members. The visitors of the booth were presented with numerous innovations:

Among them was the Coloretto lens series for line scan cameras as well as the LLS line light with 1.8 million lux. They jointly enable demanding applications in web inspection, surface inspection and waste sorting. The DOPF series is one further literal highlight with up to 2.5 million lux. Here, the light can be coupled with telecentric lenses via fiber connectors which makes them ideal for glass and display inspection. Additionally, it features an integrated digital controller with Ethernet and RS-232 interface.

The OPT-SL/SLS illumination projects structured light on objects for precise captures in 3D. As they do without laser light, less speckles are blinding the camera and creating lens artefacts at highly reflective surfaces. Beyond, OPT also shows innovation at traditional backlights. Thanks to the slim frame and their powerful, densely placed LEDs, the OPT-FL series enables high-contrast captures at high speed in narrow spaces.
