When ambition meets ambition
By using machine vision technology, machines are enabled to artificially see and make decisions. Typical applications are quality inspection, guidance for robots, measurement and identification. Machine vision is at the heart of industry 4.0. In this world, traceability, regulation, in-line inspection and efficiency are of utmost importance. For customers, this means increased productivity due to automation, improved product quality and safety and more consistent inspection resulting in useful data for enhanced quality analysis and predictive measures (forecasting, predictive maintenance).
Together, we build a leading company
OOAKT nurtures a culture of commitment and customer centricity, while innovation is in its DNA. In 2016 and 2017 it won the FD-Gazellen Award for fast growing midsize companies. In 2017 One of A Kind Technologies was also selected as one of the eight New Champions by the FD newspaper as one of the most innovative and promising companies of The Netherlands.
The ambition is to triple revenues in 5 years time by executing a well-defined expansion strategy in machine vision systems and modules. Buy-and-build opportunities should provide additional growth.
