Automated Optical Inspection

MVP History / Overview



On the forefront of technology since its inception, Machine Vision Products, Inc. (MVP) is continuing to uphold its reputation for innovative engineering in the vision inspection industry.

MVP was founded in 1993 by Dr George Ayoub and a team of experienced engineers. Since then MVP has developed five generations of Optical Inspection Equipment and creating award-winning innovations. Some of these innovations include multiprocessor architecture, advanced solid-state lighting modules, “flying camera” inspection, parallel computing architecture for real-time image analysis, and multiple acquisition camera modules for high-speed in-line inspection.

More impressive is the software power, flexibility and ease-of-use, permitting it to adapt to wide range of applications across many industries in SMT and Microelectronics.

As a result, MVP’s AutoInspector Series is the fastest and most accurate inspection system available in today’s market. Other innovations include powerful inspection software, paste inspection, productivity tools such as off-line programming, database generation, in-line repair and laser pointers, and many more. The company continuously expands its R&D effort in the field of automated circuit board inspection in order to meet the future needs of its growing customer base in the US and international markets.
