OULU, Finland, Dec. 1, 2020, — Konica Minolta Sensing Europe BV, a wholly owned subsidiary of Konica Minolta, will acquire Specim, Spectral Imaging Ltd., a supplier of hyperspectral imaging solutions for applications in optics, optoelectronics, electronics, and machine vision. Specim is headquartered in Oulu, Finland, where the company will maintain its existing offices.

In a press release, Hitoshi Kamezawa, Konica Minolta’s Sensing Business Unit’s executive officer and general manager, said that as Konica Minolta addresses social responsibility changes, Specim’s assets in hyperspectral imaging will serve to contribute to Konica Minolta’s growth strategy, expanding its business into safety, security, and the environmental sciences. Konica Minolta acquired the Spanish company Eines Vision Systems SL, a developer of visual inspection systems and solutions for the automotive production process, in 2019.

The transaction is subject to closing conditions.

hyperspectral imaging
Hyperspectral imaging is an advanced imaging technique that captures and processes information from across the electromagnetic spectrum. Unlike traditional imaging systems that record only a few spectral bands (such as red, green, and blue in visible light), hyperspectral imaging collects data in numerous contiguous bands, covering a wide range of wavelengths. This extended spectral coverage enables detailed analysis and characterization of materials based on their spectral signatures. Key...
Optoelectronics is a branch of electronics that focuses on the study and application of devices and systems that use light and its interactions with different materials. The term "optoelectronics" is a combination of "optics" and "electronics," reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of this field. Optoelectronic devices convert electrical signals into optical signals or vice versa, making them crucial in various technologies. Some key components and applications of optoelectronics include: ...
machine vision
Machine vision, also known as computer vision or computer sight, refers to the technology that enables machines, typically computers, to interpret and understand visual information from the world, much like the human visual system. It involves the development and application of algorithms and systems that allow machines to acquire, process, analyze, and make decisions based on visual data. Key aspects of machine vision include: Image acquisition: Machine vision systems use various...
