Berg, one of the three directors of BMB, is also convinced by the advantages of the close collaboration. ‘We strongly believe that we can only provide ‘proven reliability’ to our customers together with a great partner. When our customers want to start a test object in high quantity right away within a short time period, we urgently need an X-ray system from VisiConsult, which can be configurated via remote maintenance. If the collaboration would not work, this would lead to an assembly line stop at one of our customers’. Just recently, VisiConsult developed a full automatic X-ray inspection system, the XRHRobotStar, in collaboration with BMB. The prompt development, high quality and simple integration of the system proves the successful collaboration. ‘It is no secret, how strongly we appreciate to work with another family company together.
