Our History

BAPIS was founded in 2000 by Dr. Ing. Peter Bonk and developed from a one-man engineering office into a world leader in the niche market of high-speed acquisition and processing of color and grayscale image data. Today, imaging hardware, software and firmware from BAPIS support high-speed applications in a wide range of industries worldwide.

In 2017, BAPIS became a wholly owned subsidiary of its longtime partner DATAWIN. In 2021, BAPIS was merged into its former parent company and has since been a proud brand of DATAWIN GmbH.
