Jan 17, 2010

RENTON, WA, January 2010 — Microscan, a global technology leader for precision data acquisition and control solutions, headquartered in Renton, WA, announces the dedication of its satellite facility, Northeast Technology Center. The company has invited a select group of key customers and media to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the dedication of the Technology Center.

Microscan, the leading global provider of TTC (Track, Trace and Control) has an extensive portfolio of intellectual property, including more than 30 pending patents to complement its existing 85 technology patents. As a technology leader, Microscan’s history of innovation includes the invention of the first laser diode barcode scanner and the 2D symbology, Data Matrix.

Microscan’s Northeast Technology Center augments the company’s high-powered engineering and technical research and development capabilities. The approx. 20,000 sq. ft. facility is currently dedicated to focus on R&D for machine vision, machine vision lighting, direct part mark reading, and verification. The staff at the facility includes four PhDs. Additionally, the Center features engineering labs, a training facility and a comprehensive product demonstration room.

“The northeastern United States has a rich history for cutting edge technology stemming from major colleges and institutions such as MIT. This facility allows us to focus elite technical resources on development, without the distraction of other corporate functions such as administration, manufacturing or sales,” said Bruce Scharf, Vice President of Engineering at Microscan. “As a result, Microscan will be able to continue leading technology in automatic identification and machine vision solutions.”

The inventor of the laser barcode scanner and 2D code Data Matrix, Microscan has a strong history of product innovation, as well as holding the most extensive patent portfolio of an Auto ID company. The addition of the Northeast Technology Center and the introduction of nine new products throughout 2009 shows that the company has and will continue to remain focused on product development, even during a downturn.
