Kathleen P. Iverson, chief executive officer and chair, commented: “CyberOptics is capitalizing upon the ongoing upturn of the global electronics market by garnering new customers and extending our penetration of our existing customer base through our offerings of alignment sensors and the new-generation inspection systems developed over the past several years. Reflecting pent-up demand for alignment sensors by manufacturers of robotic pick-and-place equipment, including Juki, Assembleon and DEK, sensor sales were up 27% from this year’s first quarter and by 439% from last year’s second quarter. In addition, sales of inspection systems rose 44% from this year’s first quarter and by 163% from the second quarter of 2009 as our new-generation systems allowed us to capitalize on significant additions to electronics production capacity during the first half of 2010.”
