This Advanced Imaging guide focuses on some of the companies that offer custom services. By custom, we mean developing a highly specialized system or component solution for a single customer, or perhaps a limited run of equipment that might include tens of units to several hundreds of units. This could also include custom hardware or a scientific or machine vision imaging solution engineered by an integrator. Similarly, this could involve companies that take on a niche outsourcing role in some specific aspect of product development and production – at any scale. If you provide such services and would like to be included next year, send an e-mail to Managing Editor Stacey Meacham at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
