Timeline and Milestones

  • 1999 - Serview is founded.  Our first clients include existing users of machine vision.  We provide these companies a way to maximize the return on investment with value added engineering services.  Our services include optics & lighting evaluation and design, programming and overall machine vision system design consulting.  We develop our relationship with Cognex Corporation and begin to develop software for Cognex PC & smart camera based vision systems.
  • 2000 - Our first Cognex In-Sight vision system is designed, manufacturing, installed and commissioned for a major producer of consumer products inspecting product labels. This follows up with a repeat order for a 2nd system in 2001, both systems are still in operation with Billions of product inspected on a continuous basis since 2000.   They include the first generation Cognex In-Sight cameras and Allen Bradley PLC's with encoder based reject tracking for completely automated operation.
  • 2001 - 2D CAD is used for electrical and mechanical design of turnkey vision systems.  Our major clients include a well known Fortune 500 multinational corporation supporting  a cGMP regulated Health/Beauty consumer product.
  • 2003 - We move to our current location in West Berlin, NJ.    We support a zero defect initiative and achieve our first success in supporting a second major client in the health/beauty market.
  • 2005 - We double the size of our facility and increase our capabilities in the area of machining, panel fabrication and design and production of full turnkey vision systems.
  • 2007 - Vision systems for cGMP regulated customers are a major focus for us.  We supply validated vision systems installed in the areas of medical devices, drug products, plastic bottles, plastic caps.  These systems are designed, installed and validated with PLC and encoder reject tracking with reject verification.
  • 2008 - Completed 30 Cognex PC based vision systems for a single customer.
  • 2009 - Total Sales of $1M are achieved with a single end user.
  • 2010 - 3D CAD is used for design of systems (Solidworks).
  • 2012 - First CNC system purchased - providing automation in machining.
  • 2014 - A VMC (vertical machining center) is purchased, this is a higher level CNC machine providing increased level of automation and provides benefits in the area of size/accuracy/speed.
  • 2015 - We design & manufacture vision modules for use in OEM machines, and drop ship our product directly to distribution depots.  These systems are used in all countries in the areas of credit card companies, banks, mail systems and government agencies.
