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! "
