Manufacturing Analytics

We help manufacturers to implement advanced quality control mechanisms in order to comply with the quality standards required by clients or regulators. Advanced photonics techniques can detect tiny surface defects, surface contaminants or inclusions and provide input for optimized manufacturing process control, e.g., scrap reduction, etc.

PRECISE DIMENSIONS MEASUREMENT

Precise dimensions measurement is a common requirement in manufacturing quality control. The traditional approach using touch probes imposes significant limitations on process throughput and sample object manipulation and is therefore being replaced with optical measurements where possible. We develop custom opto-electronics solutions for dimension measurements in the range of micrometres.

COMPUTER VISION AND SIGNAL PROCESSING

Our research and development team has expertise in data mining and predictive analytics, optimization, image processing, signal processing, machine learning and visualization.

APPLICATIONS

  • detection of failure patterns to improve asset productivity and product quality
  • analysis of hyper- and multi-spectral images for the detection of quality and anomalies within a production process
  • recognition of objects in images and video for security and monitoring
  • analysis of audio streams for quality assurance
  • mechanical surface defects
  • surface contamination with industrial pollutants (e.g., oils, detergents)
  • chemical inclusions (e.g., oxides)

ADVANTAGES

  • high sensitivity and specificity for material property variations
  • fast, noncontact, automatic, and quantitative measurement
  • high resolution
  • compact design for integration into production lines for continuous analytics
  • straightforward integration with other inspection systems

LASER PROFILOMETRY

Laser profilometry is a technique for measuring the 3D surface profiles of objects. The measured profiles provide quantitative information on the surface’s shape, roughness, cracks, and pits. Typical industrial applications include the detection of surface defects, sample thickness measurements, etc.

ADVANTAGES

  • fast, noncontact automatic and quantitative 3D measurements
  • high resolution
  • compact design
  • straightforward integration with other inspection systems
