Our history

The history of Nanor dates back to 1967 when Instrument AB Lambda was established by Franz T. Cohn to import and market scientific and laboratory instrumentation. A natural development was the extension to photonics components into a sister company, Lambda Electronics AB.  With the advent of imaging analysis and its many scientific, medical and industrial applications, Parameter AB was formed to become the center point while the laboratory instrument business was sold off. In the early 1990’s Michael Cohn (Franz’s son) joined the company and, after Franz retired a few years later, Michael assumed the role of CEO.

Over the years, Parameter grew to become the leading supplier of Machine Vision and Imaging products and expanded its base of operations from Sweden to include all the Scandinavian countries as well as Finland and Poland.

In April 2014, Parameter’s Imaging department was sold to Stemmer-Imaging GmbH in Germany. At the same time, Michael Cohn established Nanor AB to continue the heritage of supplying top-tier products and service within the world of Motion Control (Photonics) and Positioning.
