Pleora Technologies, a leader in industrial video connectivity, today announced that it is expanding its corporate headquarters and enhancing its web site to help serve the company's growing global customer base.


"Our business continues to grow at a rapid rate, with global systems and camera manufacturers deploying our video interface products in a widening range of end-applications," said George Chamberlain, President of Pleora Technologies. "We are now preparing for our next stage of growth, with a new headquarters and web site that reflects our broadening product portfolio. Expanding Pleora's team in Ottawa, and making it easier to access our online product information and resources, will ensure we continue to deliver innovative end-to-end solutions that help our customers shorten time-to-market, reduce risk, and lower costs."

Since being founded in 2000, Pleora has grown its Ottawa operations to approximately 55 staff. Relocating its corporate headquarters to 340 Terry Fox Drive, Pleora now occupies 15,000 square feet; an increase of approximately 30 percent compared with its previous location at 359 Terry Fox Drive. Pleora plans to lease an additional 7,500 square feet over the next five years, allowing the company to continue to grow its Ottawa-based engineering, support, sales, marketing and corporate staff.

Pleora's new headquarters is the company's most recent business expansion, following the opening of a Denmark sales office serving Europe and the Middle East, and the addition of a dedicated sales engineer in China. The company's Gigabit Ethernet (GigE)-based video interface products - including external frame grabbers and embedded hardware - are deployed globally in manufacturing, medical, defense, security and transportation applications that require high-speed, uncompressed video for real-time analysis.

Pleora's recently relaunched corporate web site, www.pleora.com, helps system and camera manufacturers more easily find the right product for their application requirements, and access engineering expertise and resources.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
