North American Research and Development Center


Technological Innovations in Optics and Image Processing.

OEM-applications quite often require a custom development to have the sensor / barcode-reader / vision sensor-system perfectly fit the application.

In 2007, Leuze established its North American R & D Center in Rochester NY, the world leader in optics and imaging. Our highly experienced engineering team is specialized in imaging based technology for industrial and pharmaceutical (focus on IVD) applications.
