PLYMOUTH, MI--(Marketwired - May 13, 2013) - Perceptron, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRCP) announced that it will hold an investor day at its corporate office and manufacturing facility in Plymouth on Wednesday, May 22.

The day's planned events include demonstrations of product applications illustrating how Perceptron's current and new systems provide value to customers. A current Perceptron customer will provide a presentation regarding how they use Perceptron's systems in their assembly processes. The agenda also provides time for discussion and a question-and-answer period with Perceptron's senior management team.

The Perceptron demonstrations will feature the final phase of introduction of its Helix™ 3D Metrology Solution, an innovative and versatile 3D metrology platform that enables manufacturers to perform their most challenging measurement tasks. It combines more than 25 years of laser-triangulation and 3D metrology experience with recent technological advances to create the most unique and powerful solution in the market.

We are pleased to provide an opportunity for investors to see demonstrations of Helix and our other systems to enable them to better understand Perceptron's role in improving quality and efficiency in modern manufacturing processes."

Perceptron is located within 30 minutes of Detroit Metropolitan airport. The agenda for the day has been structured to allow investors from the Midwest and East Coast to arrive and depart on May 22 without requiring an overnight stay. Investors interested in attending the event should contact Jill Bamford at 734-414-4810 for additional details.
