Active break for DGZfP at 
X-Ray innovator VisiConsult

The German Society for Non-destructive Testing. (DGZfP) invited its Technical Committee Radiographic Session (FA D) for two days from 26.-27. November to the company VisiConsult in Stockelsdorf, Germany. The Technical Committee includes the Computed Tomography Subcommittee and the Digital Radiography Subcommittee. The Deputy Chairman of the Subcommittee CT is VisiConsult’s Head of Application, Dr. Frank Herold. He and Commercial Director Lennart Schulenburg welcomed their guests.

The DGZfP is the world’s oldest non-destructive testing society, promoting science and research on the subject and organizing communication among stakeholders. For the first time the event took place at VisiConsult. Around 50 members and guests accepted the invitation. Besides a company presentation and a factory tour by VisiConsult, many topics about CT and DR were on the agenda for the subcommittees.

Recent developments in radiography and CT

Radiation testing as a non-destructive testing technique provides many opportunities for exciting presentations about CT and radiography such as “Pore and Defect Detection with Artificial Intelligence”, by Patrick Fuchs. Everybody listened to the speakers with great interest and the content was discussed together enthusiastically already before the dinner in Lübeck’s beautiful inner city.

Dr. Frank Herold spoke about the state of standardization regarding dimensionally measurements with CT at ASTM and ASME. In this regard, Dr. Herold states: “The possibility of a detailed imaging of internal structures of components by CT is unsurpassed, for example, in terms of increased production by 3D printing processes and their complex internal structures.”

VisiConsult rewards the hard-working DGZfP visitors with an active break

As a developer and manufacturer of X-ray inspection systems, VisiConsult very much appreciates working with the DGZfP. Commercial Director Lennart Schulenburg explains “In particular, working on creation and harmonizing of standards and guidelines on a national and international level provides companies such as VisiConsult and its customers with a professional basis for high-quality results in material testing. “

Since VisiConsult always organizes an active break for its employees on Wednesdays, the group of visitors was spontaneously involved on the second day of the session. Together with VisiConsult`s managing director Hajo Schulenburg, bodies were properly stretched 15 minutes, so everybody returned to work with new energy.

On the second day the visitors participated at the active break for new energy.

One more time in spring 2020

Finally, the RT Subcommittee on Education and its RT-CT 2 Working Group met in a separate meeting to discuss future training material. In February, VisiConsult will welcome another subcommittee of the DGZfP: The Subcommittee Interfaces, Documentation, Data Sovereignty, Storage & Archiving in the new Technical Committee ZfP 4.0. VisiConsult is looking forward to the next session in its facility – maybe again with an active break!

Sauter Elektonik buys XRHCount during productronica 2019

VCcount, the new electronics division of VisiConsult participated at productronica 2019 and sold to a brand-new customer one of their systems.

It’s been a successful event for VCcount. Many visitors stopped by and demonstrated interest. The team presented two new features, the Worry-free Counting package as a new payment model, and they sold one system to the company Sauter Elektronik.

CEO of Sauter, Harry Sauter, “During the last 8 years we used a solution that counted the perforation of the SMD reels, but that takes much too long. So, we investigated several possibilities and I was impressed how fast the XRHCount is! There is no need for the operator to pre-set something. He loads four reels into the drawer, pushes one button and after ten seconds we have accurate quantities. Beside the fast counting, I’m glad to provide my operator an ergonomic solution due to the sophisticated drawer design.”

Nico Federsel and Harry Sauter sealed the deal with a handshake during productronica 2019.

Sauter Elektronik is a strongly expanding manufacturing service within the EMS branch, and has been a force in the market for over 30 years. Equipped with top equipment and committed staff, investigations into solutions with long-term benefits are logical.

Their newest acquisition will be integrated into the production line and brings additional benefits:

  • Counting Cloud
  • Data Base Connection
  • Barcode Reader 

Nico Federsel, Head of VCcount, explains, “The system that we sold to Sauter Elektronik is a system that includes the Quad Count Pro, so they will also benefit by a time-saving of 75%. I am curious to see how this will accelerate Sauter Elektroniks success.”

VCcount presents two new XRHCount features and launches Worry-free Counting package at productronica

VCcount, the new electronics division of VisiConsult and innovation leader in counting machines, presents to their electronic customers along two technical innovations a payment model at the productronica exhibition.

It’s an exciting time for VCcount after month of ideas and developments. Nico Federsel, Sales Head of VCcount, says “we were curious about how to excel the satisfaction of our customers. But it is impossible to optimize an already outstanding counting machine like XRHCount.” With the XRHCount the customers are able to count different SMD components in an efficient and easy way. Due to the company-owned Counting Cloud potential optimization happens autonomously. So, it’s been a logical conclusion to the VCcount team to focus this year on frame conditions.

The idea of a monthly Worry-free Counting package came up and now VCcount offers customers a complete package to enjoy the counting flow with following additional benefits:

  • Easy and reliable Service and Support
  • No Capex
  • Always technically up to date
  • Calculable and constant cost

But also, with regard to new features VCcount can be proud: Two features were developed and launched this year and will be presented at the productronica. The Quad Count Pro enables the XRHCount to count four reels with one scan. It means a time-saving of 75%.

The second new development is a result of a cooperation with the company MODI, leader of goods receipt scanner. The combination of XRHCount and the Top Scan unit of the MODI WES V4 system uses all the information from barcode / data matrix code labels on incoming goods, such as part rolls, dry packs, etc., to store information as a read, data and traceability interface and to all subsequent processes send. Here, labels are safely read both with codes (with and without identifiers), arbitrarily composed string formats as well as plain text information, the information compared and stored together with images & Unique ID in the traceability database.

Area Sales Manager Ronaldo Noaves smiles while summarizing “Our customers can be satisfied by buying our XRHCount or they can be happy by choosing our worry-free package.”

VCcount is a division of VisiConsult and offers a worldwide network of certified partners and service points. This will ensure that new customers get a high-quality product consultation while existing systems are optimally maintained. In the case of a system shutdown, highly qualified service technicians with local language skills are available. By the 24/7 helpdesk operators can always contact our partners.
