Founded as Applied Vision Corporation in 1997, our focus is on improving the productivity and profitability of our customers by protecting the quality and safety of their product.
    We create machine vision inspection systems for empty metal and glass cans and bottles that are used on the fastest, most complex production and packaging lines in the world. For 25 years, we have combined powerful, patented technologies with exceptional after-sale service to support more accurate, reliable, efficient inspections for rigid container manufacturers.

    New Name, Same Mission
    In late 2020, Applied Vision was acquired by Antares Vision Group (“the Group”) headquartered in Travagliato, Italy. More recently, we’ve rebranded and are now doing business as Antares Vision Group – Rigid Containers as we begin to market our capabilities under one powerful brand with a long history of success around the world.
    Our new go-to-market identity reflects all the expectations our original mark stands for, while also acknowledging exciting new aspects of our service. Through the Group, we can provide solutions for inspecting empty containers or safeguarding food and beverage filler operations, as well as enabling serialization and digitalization across the supply chain from track and trace solutions to smart data management.

    More to See
    The Group’s unique knowledge and experience create the perfect opportunity for our company to continue to succeed globally. Moving forward, all inspection systems will incorporate the same Applied Vision technology including proprietary optical and lighting components, electronic image capture techniques, and digital imaging and AI algorithms, and are now backed by a unique ecosystem of capabilities for building factories where people and machines work in constant optimization.
    If you need a standard or customized machine vision solution, are concerned with inspecting 100% of cans while maintaining production speed, want to know which decorator is your most accurate or wish to replicate the best inspection results across all lines, we can give you a wider view of your entire operation.
