Domino Printing Sciences has acquired Lake Image Systems, a producer of automated, vision-based inspection systems, for quality control and data verification.
Lake Image Systems’ product range includes high-tech camera and lighting applications, and image data management software, which combine to produce intelligent vision systems for quality control and data verification purposes.
‘Our acquisition of Lake Image Systems will expand our coding and marking hardware and software portfolio and further enhance our ability to deliver high-performance, integrated coding solutions,’ said Robert Pulford, CEO at Domino. ‘The team’s strength in the inspection market and expertise in camera-based print quality and variable data verification technologies will enable our customers to increase production efficiency, reduce manufacturing waste, and grow smart, sustainable manufacturing operations.
‘In addition to Lake Image’s similar approach to hardware and software integration, the company shares many of the same values as Domino, with a determination to service its customers to the highest possible standards. This ensures a seamless transition for its expert consultants and technologists.’
Lake Image Systems was founded in 1994, by Martin Keats, Paul Smith, and Paul Stinson, all of whom will remain within the business as a subsidiary of Domino. Over the last 26 years the company has expanded its international operations, with 50 employees 50 spread between four offices, including the company headquarters in Tring, UK, as well as the USA, France, and Singapore.
‘We have a long history working with Domino, and by joining forces we have an excellent platform to grow our business and deliver more value to our collective customers and partners,’ commented Martin Keats. ‘By combining our technologies and resources, we can accelerate the development of the next generation of integrated, intelligent vision solutions for the wider printing and packaging market.’
