Cognex Wins 2012 Control Design Reader's Choice Award by 43% Margin

POSTED 10/05/2012

Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX), the world's leading supplier of machine vision systems, announced that it has won the Control Design Readers Choice Award in the category of Machine Vision System by a margin of 43% over the second place finisher. Control Design surveyed the machine builders and system integrators among its readership and of the approximately 1,000 that responded 52% answered that Cognex machine vision systems delivered the best value compared to 9% for the second place finisher.

Cognex has won a Control Design Readers Choice Award in the machine vision category every year since 2001 with seven first place wins and four second place finishes. The 2012 survey went to about 15,000 subscribers with buying influence or buying authorization for industrial automation and control products. Vendors were not eligible to vote. The ballot was unaided which means the respondents had to provide their own names of suppliers rather than picking from a list.

"We are very proud to win the Control Design Readers Choice Award for 2012," said Ron Pulicari, Marketing Manager for Cognex. "This award validates our strategy of continual investment into the R&D of our products. The overall result is continued best-in-class products that help our customers improve the quality and traceability of their products while at the same time reducing manufacturing and distribution costs."
