More than three decades ago, Isra Vision was founded as a spin-off of the Technical University of Darmstadt and subsequently developed into a leading global machine vision technology company. At the end of June 2021, the founder and CEO of Isra Vision, Enis Ersü, retired from his operational professional life.

In the course of his succession planning, Isra has entered into a strategic partnership with the Swedish industry group Atlas Copco and forms the nucleus of the new Machine Vision Solutions division. The course is now being set for further successful business development with a new, powerful management team.

The new three-member management team consists of the two well-known Isra Vision Executive Board members Hans Jürgen Christ and Dr Johannes Giet, and the new speaker of the Isra Vision Executive Board, Tomas Lundin. Tomas Lundin worked for the Atlas Copco Group for over 20 years in various management positions. With his many years of market and management experience, he brings him the best qualifications for future growth tasks at Isra Vision.

In the last four years, he has gained experience in the Asian market as General Manager Industrial Technique in China. He has already been on-site at Isra’s headquarters in Darmstadt since August 2020 and is active as a member of the Management Board. Tomas Lundin will lead the new division as President of Machine Vision Solutions from the headquarters in Darmstadt. 

Hans Jürgen Christ has been with Isra Vision for 25 years. In the first years, he took over the important task of sales management and, as CSO, is one of the managers who have significantly contributed to the growth of Isra Vision. 

Dr Johannes Giet came to Isra in 2001 via the acquisition of Rheinmetall Machine Vision, where he was the transaction manager. Subsequently, he took over the management of the development of Isra Vision worldwide. With an extraordinarily forward-looking innovation course combined with important strategic and operational impulses, he has had a decisive influence on the success of Isra.

Isra Vision on being the leader for 3D Machine Vision

With its subsidiaries, Isra Vision is a global leader in the surface inspection of web materials and one of the market leaders for 3D Machine Vision. In addition, Isra Vision is one of the most important suppliers for industrial image processing (Machine Vision). Machine Vision is a key technology of vision systems that imitates the human eye.

Today’s Isra applications focus primarily on automating the production and quality assurance of goods and products that are delivered to large, promising markets such as energy, healthcare, food, mobility, and transport. With more than 25 locations worldwide, Isra is close to its customers everywhere and ensures optimal service and support.

With Atlas Copco, Isra can fall back on a large, worldwide competence network to continue the previous success story. As a separate “Machine Vision Solutions” division in Atlas Copco’s Industrial Technique business area, Isra will continue to operate from its headquarters in Darmstadt. For this purpose, the company is building a new headquarters in the north of Darmstadt. The move-in is scheduled for the end of 2022.

Atlas Copco is also adding the previously acquired image processing and visual quality control specialist Quiss GmbH and the US company Perceptron, which specializes in automated measurement technology, to the new division. The product portfolios complement each other perfectly, and global customers will have a technologically leading and reliable partner for the customized development of innovative machine vision applications. 

The goal is to continue to grow in the future with the two business units Smart Factory Automation and Surface Inspection. As one of the world market leaders for machine vision, to provide global customers with the latest technologies with optimal ROI in the shortest possible time.


The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
