VisiConsult received innovation award for XRHRobotStar

[Stockelsdorf, 2019/05/09] It is one of VisiConsult’s most successful projects and is mainly sold abroad: The XRHRobotStar was honoured on May 9 in Berlin by the German Central Innovation Program for SMEs (ZIM).

The company received a grant of € 140,000 by the ZIM from 2014 to 2016, enabling it to develop an efficient solution to suppliers in the aviation sector and the automotive industry in particular to support them reaching their safety-related quality goals.

The XRHRobotStar is integrated into the customer’s existing production line and includes a digital X-ray system with conveyor technology for the fully automatic testing of aluminium castings or other test specimens. It consists of a loading robot and a test robot with associated X-ray technology in a closed radiation protection cabin. In addition, the system is delivered with the ADR (Automatic Defect Recognition) module and thus has the ability to operate without human interaction image analysis.

The advantages for the customer are obvious: The customer can maintain his production process and improve the parts inspection with regard to cycle time and error detection.

Lennart Schulenburg, Commercial Director at VisiConsult, explains: “The promotion was a crucial point for us to anticipate global competition. The resulting sales deals have created new jobs for us.” In 2017, the revenues resulting from the ZIM project reached more than ten times the amount of the subsidy.

As part of the Innovation Day SME of the BMWi, the successful implementation of the project results of the XRHRobotStar as a “ZIM Individual Project of the Year” was honoured with a certificate signed by Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier. Minister Altmaier: “Small and medium-sized enterprises are the innovation engine of our economy – and today’s companies are excellent examples of his creativity, creativity and future orientation. I am very happy about the innovation success! ”

MODI and VisiConsult present new product cooperation at SMTconnect in Nuremberg

[Stockelsdorf, 02 May 2019] Over the past few months, MODI and VisiConsult have been working together to come up with a solution for their customers: fully automatic text recognition for databases and test counting of parts in one. The result will be presented for the first time at SMTconnect expo in Nuremberg.

What happens when the fastest X-ray based component counting system is combined with a market leader’s goods receipt scanner? “An excellent opportunity for our customers to optimize their material management,” explains Nico Federsel, Electronics Division Manager at VisiConsult. The goal of XRHCount is to speed up the counting of components. Compared to several minutes of mechanical counting, staff costs are reduced by more than 95%. The system is designed for 24/7 continuous operation thanks to its durable components and is already in use in a number of production facilities worldwide. The link with the counting cloud means that the artificial intelligence (AI) of the system is becoming even more precise and extensive. Previously, the count of the XRHCount was less than 10 seconds. The integration of a scan solution by MODI replaces manual data entry, thereby preventing errors in the data.

MODI’s AdoDat 5000 Receiving Scanner has been integrated into the XRHCount and 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. Philip Hund, Sales Manager at MODI, explains, “This eliminates mis-fitting costs associated with misidentified components, ensures complete traceability of customer and quality audits, and increases process reliability. At the heart of all our systems is the patented ADOMO® camera technology.” This uses a deflecting mirror to concentrate the full camera resolution on the label to be read and to use the entire hardware performance efficiently. Label information is read out and adjusted within 1-2 seconds and highest reading accuracy is guaranteed.

Philip Hund announces: “We are exhibiting the system at SMTconnect to introduce the system. At booth 239 in hall 4, visitors can experience the system live.” At stand 551 in hall 4A, VisiConsult will explain more about this special XRHCount solution.

Regional strong – Mechanical engineering companies in the region of Lübeck nominated for the Grand Prize for SME

This year, the Oskar-Patzelt-Stiftung awards the “Grand Prize for SME”, which is considered to be Germany’s most coveted business award, for the 25th time. By awarding the prize, the foundation pays tribute to entrepreneurial activity and virtues exclusively in SME companies of all industries. The motto of the year 2019 is: Sustainable Business.

The companies may not nominate themselves, but are proposed by third parties. The selection of winners and finalists will be made by regional juries from a total of 12 competition regions and a final jury. In each region, three companies can be awarded as winners and five others as finalists.

The regional dominance of the nominees in the field of mechanical engineering is strikingly strong. In addition to Mankenberg GmbH and Wache GmbH from Lübeck, Krüger & Salecker Maschinenbau GmbH & Co.KG from Bad Schwartau, VisiConsult X-ray Systems & Solutions GmbH from Stockelsdorf is pleased to announce their nomination. Even if their products could not be more different, these four companies have one in common: Their special sense for what the customer needs to develop tailored special solutions, which leaves nothing to be desired.

Visiconsult X-ray Systems & Solutions GmbH: X-ray inspection for more safety
The company from Stockelsdorf engineers and manufactures high-tech X-ray equipment for non-destructive testing, X-ray based counting systems for electronic components and portable X-ray systems for testing suspicious objects.
The owner-managed family business began in 1966 with a small office in the Technik Center Lübeck, where it developed software for X-ray equipment. Today, the almost 90 employees produce up to 150 machines a year in Stockelsdorf, expressly relying on local suppliers.

With help of the X-ray systems for non-destructive testing, components are examined for material defects or cracks. The high technology equipment from Stockelsdorf automatically detects hidden or structural defects and is used in the aerospace industry, including Boeing and Airbus, and by car manufacturers and their suppliers. Another important pillar for the radiation professionals from Stockelsdorf is the public safety. Bomb de-escalation anti-espionage systems around the world are equipped with portable X-ray systems, and German special forces and federal police use the mobile solutions to inspect suspicious bags and defuse bombs.

Managing director Hajo Schulenburg, highlights: “The nomination is a clear sign for us that we are continuing to develop in a promising direction. We know that besides our strategic approach, this is also due to many advantageous external factors, e.g. the attractive Hansebelt region, the technical and craft-oriented employees and reliable, regional suppliers and partners. As a developer and manufacturer of X-ray systems, we are confident about the finale.”
