Machine vision systems from Octum – Security of your investment due to the total service life of our systems!
Our comprehensive range of services safeguards the customer’s investment in our system solutions, from the initial analysis of your application over the full service life of the systems in production.
Our first step is to carry out a feasibility study of the task based on your specifications. We then discuss our proposed solution with you to ensure that the optimum solution actually makes it into production under consideration of your process know-how.
We plan your application using the latest available technologies and rely on worldwide available components from our partner companies. Our machine vision systems are always state-of-the-art.
3D design for machine integration saves integration costs
During handling of the project, we create 3D design drawings in SolidWorks directly in the customer's design drawings. This ensures a comprehensible and transparent relation to the actual machine conditions at the installation site for both parties at a very early stage of the project. Any necessary adaptations and modifications can therefore be made at low cost and without loss of time in later integration. This mode of procedure saves design and integration costs for the customer. At the same time, both parties can clearly determine, at a very early stage in the project, how well the image processing system suits the machine, with optimum utilization of the concrete installation situation.
Rapid response to customer requests due to own development and production.
Customized solutions occasionally require hardware and software components which cannot be purchased from another source. In such cases, we develop and produce the necessary components in-house, e.g.:
- Application specific special lighting
- 3D sensors with Scheimpflug adapters and telecentric lenses
- mechanics for camera and lighting assembly
- protective housings
- Software tools for 3D surface inspection, 3D OCR, assembly testing etc.
- HMI system software for smart cameras In-Sight
- customized software links to internal processes etc.
The software development at Octum is now effected according to Scrum methods and ensures transparent, comprehensible development processes and ultimately offers the possibility to supply validated system software.
We have sufficient space in our new production hall for test rigs and the setup and acceptance tests of complex machines with our image processing solutions.
Customer-specific training for successful operation of the systems.
A know-how transfer from the provider to the customer is absolutely essential for successful operation of image processing systems. We offer practice-oriented training courses for operators and setup technicians, tuned specifically to the respective system solution. Preventive maintenance activities increase the availability of the systems and reduce potential failure costs. Our maintenance service is application-specific and also includes inspection and necessary optimization of the system settings. Our maintenance personnel carry out recommended updates and can record improvements or extensions or carry them out immediately.
If the necessary technical conditions are satisfied, remote maintenance can be an economical alternative to on-site service. Octum also offers secure tunnel solutions for this which are received with higher acceptance by customer IT.
