Our Story
Perceptron (NASDAQ:PRCP) was founded in 1981 by graduates of The General Motors Institute (formerly GMI and now Kettering University). Working closely with the automotive industry, they analyzed and comprehended the damaging effects of process variation on complex product assembly operations and concluded “a process which cannot be measured can never be effectively controlled or optimized.”

Through revolutionary machine vision and pioneering engineering efforts, they created a unique and innovative measurement solution that not only allowed fast and efficient containment of quality problems as they occurred, but also provided the ability to pro-actively seek-out and reduce process variation. The final result was groundbreaking – the first viable, in-process, 100% dimensional measurement solution capable of being deployed in the harshest of manufacturing environments.
