Nerian Vision: Hello Markus, we are very happy you joined our little virtual machine vision world tour. Could you give us a short historical summary of MoviMED?
Markus Tarin: “Hello, thank you I am happy to be on board. Of course: Since I founded the company back in 1999, MoviMED has been involved in the development of countless imaging systems. We first started out with a focus on medical imaging applications, indicated by the “MED” portion in our name. Our company developed scientific imaging systems for point of care testing, rapid infectious disease testing, DNA research, rapid drug discovery and many more applications.
Our engineering team often worked as the extended R&D department for medical startup and established companies alike. When the industry changed and Venture Capital and Private Equity firms were no longer as forth coming with funding these endeavors, MoviMED had to adopt to this change. We ventured out into industrial applications in a variety of industries.”
NV: And MoviMED today?
MT: “Our team of about 9 engineers has since been involved with high-end, high-resolution and high-speed line scan, 2D and 3D imaging applications. We are known in the industry as the go-to company for machine vision, when everything else has failed.
Many of our employees have worked for MoviMED for more than 10 years, which speaks not only to how rewarding of a workplace this company is, but moreover to the quality of people and depth of knowledge we bring to the table as a team. More recently, we have decided to refocus our efforts solely on 3D imaging applications.”
NV: What is your mission?
MT: “We strive to educate our customers and share our knowledge to select the most cost-effective solutions. We make sure to point out potential risks and pitfalls along the way based on valuable and often painful lessons learned in the past. We believe in honesty and integrity from beginning to end to build mutually beneficial and long lasting business relationships.
Whether you wish to integrate our 3D Cameras and Sensor Solutions yourself, need some assistance or prefer a turnkey 3D imaging solution with custom software and maybe even some part handling or robotics, we are here to help!”
NV: What is it about your company that makes you stand out or should convince potential customers to get in contact with you?
MT: “MoviMED is a very unique company with a very in-depth knowledge in machine vision in 2D, but also in 3D. We are comprised of a small group of very enthusiastic and passionate engineers that can’t wait to solve the next challenge.
We have solved a lot of problems in very innovative ways, often surpassing the status quo in the industry. We take a holistic approach to our customers challenges to arrive at a reliable 3D imaging solution with a favorable return on investment. We are one of very few companies in the world that understand 3D imaging and robotics equally well. This allows us to combine the two seamlessly.”
