Large strategic orders for inspection of banknote paper
ISRA VISION AG: Global market position expanded by innovative technology
For banknote printing companies, the consistent quality assurance in the production processes - from specialty paper to the inspection of applied security features and paper defects - is increasingly more important. Today's banknotes feature very complex designs with respect to graphics and printing technology and contain different security features to counteract counterfeiting. With its innovative technologies for intelligent surface inspection, ISRA offers a complete quality assurance for the production of banknotes, more efficiency and a higher productivity.
ISRA's products and technological innovations for the surface inspection of banknote papers are subject of high interest. Negotiations for additional orders in this area are currently underway in advanced stages.
This welcome development in the Specialty Paper segment underscores the significance of the strong order backlog of significantly over 40 million Euros. As communicated earlier, ISRA plans to continue its double-digit growth in the current financial year 2011/2012, while the expected growth will be probably in the lower range of the double-digit growth due to the current market situation. The broad strategic positioning across various customer industries and different geographic regions makes ISRA more robust and independent with respect to economic fluctuations.
ISRA Vision AG, together with its subsidiaries, is the world market leader for surface inspection systems. Furthermore, it is one of the globally leading providers of machine vision programs, specialising in the area of 3D machine vision, in particular for "3D robot vision".
