Machine Vision Inspection
We work with vision systems manufacturers such as Cognex, Omron and Keyence to deliver bespoke vision inspection solutions for our customers.
Some of our vision applications include:
With modern manufacturing looking to leverage off the latest industrial automation technologies, robots are playing a key role in delivering more efficient and productive manufacturing processes.
Our robot applications have included automated assembly, labelling, pick and place and palletising using the Denso, Epson and Nachi range of robots.
We also provide a “proof of concept” service to allow our customers explore the risks and benefits of using robots as part of their production process.
Our water telemetry solutions are currently being used by water service providers to monitor and record the daily water usage and reservoir levels. The system provides a graphical user interface where the user can view all the associated main data metrics. Using the data collected, reports can be generated to show total water consumption from a user selectable time period.
Most of the data displayed is in real time where any data from remote bulk flow meters is captured on a daily basis. There is also a facility for alarm notifications to be sent directly to the user.
Each telemetry solution is a bespoke solution to match the unique requirements and layout of the water service provider’s system layout.
