Machine vision and imaging web shop opens for business

Scorpion Vision has launched what it claims is the industry’s biggest online marketplace for machine vision and imaging at

The e-commerce site catalogues over 1,000 cameras and components, including lenses, machine vision light sources, specialist cables, industrial PCs, interface boards and software packages, making it a truly comprehensive B2B web shop for cameras and accessories. Delivery is free on orders within the UK, and many items – such as embedded cameras and M-12 lenses – are available for next day delivery.

The site bridges a gap that exists for a trusted platform which allows online transactions to be accompanied by specialist vision systems knowledge and advice. The site’s live chat facility means buyers can discuss any questions they might have with a Scorpion Vision imaging expert - allaying any fears about making costly purchasing mistakes. The site is also full of useful tips and recommendations for guiding users on which components to use. For example, buyers perusing C-Mount lenses can click through to a ‘Knowledge Base’ article on how to select a lens. In addition, the site features ‘lens selector’ and ‘camera selector’ facilities, which will match users with their perfect lens or camera by filtering search criteria.

Paul Wilson, managing director at Scorpion Vision, says: “E-commerce has been slower to take off in B2B industries than in B2C markets. This is partly because purchases tend to be higher value and therefore require greater trust between buyer and seller, and also because buyers of industrial systems or components want to ask questions before they buy.

“We have been active in the imaging market for over 25 years, and are already known as the leading offline supplier of vision cameras and components. This is about using the trust and experience we have built up to create a first-of-its-kind e-commerce site that gives customers specialist knowledge at their fingertips.”
