LINX Dream Technology to Business



Dream Technology to Business

LINX is an expert and industry-leader in the distribution of the world’s most advanced machine vision and automation products into the Japanese market.

Over many years, we have developed world-class expertise in machine vision, real-time control, PLC / motion, and different software development tools. Our entire sales and technical staff possess highly-skilled engineering backgrounds and experience, as well as a deep understanding of the technologies utilised. The depth of our expertise uniquely positions our company to provide unparalleled services to our customers.

One of the core LINX strengths is that we only distribute the very best, world-class products from various partners worldwide. We never position ourselves as a "supermarket" of any product; instead we carefully select each product, selecting only those that are industry leaders. This approach is how we maintain our guaranteed level of excellence. However, just as importantly, once we decide to establish a new partnership, we are 100% committed to ensuring that partner’s success in Japan.

Companies used to doing business in US and European markets that are unfamiliar with the Japanese business style, culture and language will typically face unexpectedly large challenges trying to enter the Japanese market. At LINX, we eliminate these gaps for our partners and help avoid potentially unintended but costly mistakes when getting started. If you are looking for a partner to ensure that your advanced products are successfully and seamlessly distributed to the Japanese market, LINX is the right partner for you.
