France’s Novaxion and Xpar Vision of the Netherlands have jointly agreed to end their relationship together.

Novaxion will continue to market its swabbing robot through a combination of itself, agents and IS machine suppliers such as Bucher Emhart Glass and Bottero.

Xpar Vision has taken development of robotics in its own hand and is launching the so-called Blank Robot at glasstec.

In a statement, Xpar said: “Like any relationship, ending is the most difficult part. Nevertheless both companies agreed to act as true professionals in this case.”

The partnership ended in June.
