Octum GmbH

Octum – innovative, competent, reliable, fair.

Visual inspection customer-specific and process-reliable.

For 100% visual quality inspection and material flow control in series production, we develop and implement customer-specific machine vision solutions based on technologies available and proven worldwide. A competent and committed team implements your requirements in innovative solutions for visual inspection. A fair partnership with our customers and suppliers are very important to us. Building up and extending long-term business relations are focal point of our activities. Octum has proven to be a very reliable partner from whose know-how you can also benefit.

Depending on the customer's requirements, we can supply just the image processing solution or, together with our partner companies, entire machines and systems. With more than 4,000 installed system solutions for reliable production, Octum is one of the successful machine vision solution providers in the industry.

Effective and low cost decentralized visual inspection.

Assembly lines but also complete production processes are more economical, the earlier defective parts eliminated from the production process. Decentralized visual inspection with smart networked cameras is the ideal tool for process and cost optimization. Inspection of individual process steps is technically easier and less expensive than the end of line inspection of a complex product. At the same time results are available locally for direct process control. This also avoids the proliferation of systematic errors and additional process steps (and therefore further costs) on an already defective part. We have developed OCTUMISEr  for this – a central operating, monitoring and configuration software for smart cameras of the In-Sight family from Cognex ideally suitable for effective use in all branches.

End of line visual inspection for complex tasks.

End of line Visual inspection is essential in many production processes to prevent defective parts from reaching the customer. Complex part geometries and defects that are difficult to contrast often have to be inspected here. This is the domain of the PC-based solutions with our  CV_Inspect system software for the in-line use of stationary or robot-controlled cameras. Typical tasks for this area are:

  • 2D & 3D surface inspection
  • 2D & 3D assembly inspection
  • 2D & 3D parts measurement 
  • 2D & 3D robot guidance
  • 2D & 3D reading of characters and codes
