Octum GmbH

2013 – Focus on technology development and increase of resources!

Back to list

For OCTUM 2013 was a year of technological development and further increase of resources. Good progress was made in further technological improvements of our 3D inline surface defect inspection systems, leading to reduced scan rates and cycle times as well as more reliable defect detection. The introduction of color machine vision for pharmaceutical high speed applications and the first automatic teaching and classification systems for logistics applications contributed to the positive company development. More than 3.000 OCTUM machine vision systems are now installed worldwide.

The inauguration of OCTUM`s building extension in April lead to about 300sqm of additional office space enabling further growth of the company at the existing location. The staff increase in sales and technology was the consequent step for a continuing positive development of the company. 

On the trade fairs Control, FachPack and Motek, OCTUM showed the new modern booth design as a visible sign of the next phase of the company development. The highlight of OCTUM`s 2013 events calendar, was the second technology & user day hold at the Audi Forum Neckarsulm combined with a Audi plant tour. The continued extremely positive feedback to this event marked this day as a fixed highlight in the company’s event calendar on a two years cycle.  

OCTUM is looking forward to new and challenging applications in the new fiscal year and thanks to all it’s customers for the fruitful cooperation in the past year.
