EVS Wins $0.5 Million Order From a Major Nonwoven Fabric Manufacturer

CAESAREA, Israel, May 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Elbit Vision Systems Ltd. (OTC:EVSNF), a pioneer in the science of camera-based automatic vision inspection for textile fabrics and technical webs, announced today that it received an order of $0.5 million for its IQ-TEX4 systems from a major manufacturer of nonwoven fabrics. These systems are expected to be delivered in the coming weeks.

EVS’ IQ-TEX4 systems will be integrated into the manufacturer’s high-speed lines, replacing existing competition systems.

Mr. Sam Cohen, CEO of EVS, commented, “We are always proud to create new partnerships with new companies, but winning bids to replace competing systems to ours, carry a higher significance. It proves that all of our efforts to create the leading vision inspection technology are bearing fruit. Our vision for the future of manufacturing is becoming a reality with steep upward trends in global labor costs forcing markets into an “adopt or die” situation regarding automation. These factors, coupled with our incredible cost-to-performance pricing model, have positioned EVS well for tremendous growth in the coming years. Moreover, we feel confident that the results of the second quarter will continue to be solid.”
