MOST RELEVANT MARKETS

Electronics

Very few industries are as face-paced as Electronics. New task areas and ever-increasing quality requirements constantly demand optimized processes and an efficient workflow to ensure cost-efficient production. In Electronics, the ongoing trend towards miniaturization of components and PCB assemblies calls for high-resolution and high-speed imaging analysis tools suitable for inline inspection.

Automotive

Modern design, quality, and safety standards in the automotive industry require state-of-the-art vision technologies. Thanks to high-speed imaging, comprehensive analysis of fast motion processes is now achievable in applications such as crash tests, airbag tests, wind tunnel experiments, and material testing in tire production.

Pharmaceutical

Machine vision’s safety critical role in the pharmaceutical industry is to inspect products and packaging in order to ensure optimal quality and traceability through the pharmaceutical supply chain. High yield and throughput requirements of pharmaceutical production lines call for regulation compliant vision systems featuring high camera frame rates, resolution, and corresponding processing performance of the imaging hardware and software.

Bio & Medtech

Next to the big three in imaging – X-ray, MRT, and ultrasound – camera and sensor modules enable a wide range of applications in in-vitro diagnostics, endoscopy, ophthalmology, surgery, dentistry, ENT, oncology, cardiology, and clinical care. New technologies like 3D imaging, multiparametric endoscopy, operation monitoring with hyperspectral imaging, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) bring new requirements to cameras.

High-Speed Inline Production

Zero-error production at maximum speed and 24/7 operation – these are the requirements for modern manufacturing lines. With machines running at high speed, the visual inspection of processing steps, tooling, and motion paths of products using the naked eye is not an option. Especially when faulty parts and machine defects occur sporadically, troubleshooting may become a real challenge.

Semiconductors

In semiconductor manufacturing, manufacturers need to test their products at many stages between bare wafers and packaged ICs in order to identify production flaws  as quickly as possible. Defects that may arise during the wavering, front-end or back-end / dicing process involve a high risk of disrupting the process chain, reducing yield and ultimately impacting customer satisfaction and cost.

Food & Beverage

Food production and packaging presents some of the biggest challenges for machine vision technologies, mainly due to the high variance in the visual appearance of natural materials and objects. The ever-increasing pace of production in this industry combined with  more strict standards regarding hygiene, food quality, as well as legal requirements on traceability and correct labelling  requires a high level of automation in both process control and quality inspection.

Railway

For years, intelligent diagnostic technology has played an important part in improving the efficiency of inspection and maintenance work on railway vehicles. Stationary diagnostic systems belong to the standard equipment of railway maintenance centers. Alongside the development of digital information technology, further advances in the field of integrated onboard diagnostic systems for damage detection have also been made.

Traffic

The traffic density of cars and trucks is steadily rising all over the world. At the same time, the need for speed, mobility, and safety is also becoming more and more demanding. Automated vision-based ITS systems for traffic control and monitoring have emerged as part of the Smart City concept. These cameras not only have to cope with extreme weather conditions and fluctuating light intensity, but also keep pace with the speed and massive influx of information.
