Cognex Announces the Acquisition of Webscan

NATICK, MA | Cognex Corporation has expanded its barcode verification capabilities with the acquisition of Webscan, Longmont, CO. Webscan offers more than a dozen barcode verifiers featuring proprietary high-resolution imaging and precision algorithms said to meet the highest performance standards. Companies say this strategic move unites two engineering teams to produce the best solutions in barcode verification.

“We cannot wait to expand on the great strides Webscan has already made with 1-D and 2-D barcode verification, including direct part marking which is a specialty of Cognex,” says Carl Gerst, senior VP and business unit manager at Cognex.

“This combination is a natural fit”, says Webscan president Glenn Spitz. “It brings together two industry leaders to provide customers with a complete barcode reading solution critical to product traceability.”
