Perceptron Inc., the global leader in non-contact measurement and inspection solutions, last week announced Bosch Power Tools as its strategic partner for the Construction and Do-It-Yourself markets. Perceptron previously announced it signed a new strategic customer in April, but for strategic reasons was unable to indentify Bosch at that time.
Combining Perceptron’s expertise in optical devices with Bosch’s knowledge of the power tool market and expertise in battery-powered technology led to the development of a complete optical scope solution. Perceptron transformed the optical scope market when it launched its first optical inspection device providing leading-edge optical design in an innovative hand-held solution.
“Bosch’s global strength in the power tool market, coupled with Perceptron’s visualization technology makes us a formidable team,” said Richard Price, vice president of Perceptron’s Commercial Products Business Unit.
Bosch offers its 12V Max line of tools for the cordless tool market, and 18V lithium ion technology with key features such as the Flexible Power System, Electronic Cell Protection, and special heat conductive housings designed to ensure maximum performance and reliability for the user.
New products will be launched into various sales channels later this year.
Perceptron develops, produces, and sells non-contact measurement and inspection solutions for industrial and commercial applications. The products from the company’s Industrial Business Unit provide solutions for manufacturing process control as well as sensor and software technologies for non-contact measurement and inspection applications.
The Bosch Group is a global supplier of technology and services. It comprises Robert Bosch GmbH and its more than 300 subsidiaries and regional companies in more than 60 countries.
