LMI Technologies, which makes 3-D laser sensors for industrial measurement and control applications, has sold 100 percent of its shares to join Augusta Technologie AG, a Munich, Germany-based sensor and vision technology company. As a result, LMI, of Delta, British Columbia, Canada, will become part of a worldwide company in the field of digital imaging technologies. Augusta sells digital cameras for machine vision under the Allied Vision Technologies brand. “LMI is a perfect fit to our vision activities and will give us access to the rapidly growing 3-D market,” said Augusta’s CEO Amnon Harman. Through Augusta, LMI will expand its distribution channels for the Gocator 3-D measurement sensor. The Canadian company also expects to benefit from the extensive camera technology capabilities to further develop 3-D systems.
