e2v, based in its facility in Grenoble, France has responded to increased demand within the line scan camera business by increasing its temporary workforce and implementing new shift patterns that better utilise equipment which has led to greatly increased productivity.
Positive trends within the machine vision industry have led to significant increased demand for e2v’s new world class camera products that have been introduced over the last two years.
“Recovery within the machine vision market has been far quicker than everyone expected, generating a significant strain within the global supply chain for camera products. e2v is now in the best position to meet the needs of the market in terms of camera lead times, thanks to our increased capacity utilisation and the range of cameras we can offer” explained Cedric Stein, Supply chain manager at e2v.
The temporary operators and test lines are already up and running and have already doubled e2v’s production capacity over the last two months.
