Another major order in the FPD glass sector
ISRA VISION convinces customers with its unique technology in the expanding, strategicallyimportant FPD glass sector
Display glass is an important strategic field of expansion for the ISRA group. With this latest order our customer demonstrates great trust in the superior technology and the excellent ISRA service and support. That is because ISRA solves one of the most important problems for the inspection of FPD glass which is the recognition of small defects that are barely visible for the human eye. In order to recognize these defects reliably, ISRA has developed a unique technology that is superior to most others, and which will be used in this latest order of systems.
"After the important orders by the FPD glass sector this spring with a Japanese manufacturer, this follow-up order is a proof for our superior inspection technology in the growing FPD glass market.
Also, this order strengthens our revenue basis in the East-Asian market", explains Enis Ersü, Chairman of the Board of ISRA VISION AG.
