Eventbrite - AUSTRIAN ROBOTICS WORKSHOP AND OAGM WORKSHOP 2019

PROFACTOR will exhibit at the  JEC 2019– the leading international composites show – and showcase its competences related to  Zero Defect Manufacturing (Hall 5, booth S66). The exhibition takes place at March 12 – 14, 2019 in Paris

In particular, PROFACTOR will showcase the intelligent inspection technology to detect problems in production at an early stage, developed in the EU-Project Zaero. The ZAero project aims for 30-50% boost in productivity via inline AFP and ADMP inspection, simulated part performance and decision support tools. The technology will be showcased at the JEC (Hall 5, Booth S66).

The Profactor-team presents latest results related to nanotechnology at the NILindustrialday 2019 in Aachen, Germany (SuperC, Templergraben 57, 52062 Aachen)

The NILindustrialday is a major event for the strong European NanoImprint Lithography (NIL) community.

This event primarily addresses the existing opportunities for the application of NIL and NIL related technologies as manufacturing techniques. In addition, the new promising technological approaches in the field of NIL will be presented in a healthy mix. The NILindustrialday offers industrial users and leading scientists a common platform for fruitful discussions and exchange of information.

The enormous potential of NIL to become an industrial scale production technology will be showcased.

The NILindustrialday 2019 is organized by AMO in cooperation with micro resist technology and PROFACTOR

http://www.nil-industrialday.org/

The program is available at the official website.

We are looking for to meet you in Aachen.

PROFACTOR will be represented at Control 2019 – International Trade Fair for Quality Assurance – with the theme Zero Defect Manufacturing (Hall 6, Booth 6516). The trade fair will take place from 07th to 10th May in Stuttgart.

Visual inspection is more than just making an accept/reject decision. PROFACTOR is developing inspection systems using machine vision and machine learning. The system learns to reproduce  human decision-making from sample data. This enables the flexible use of machine vision in small lot size production. The technologies provided by PROFACTOR aim at closing the feedback loop from  quality control to the process.

At Control, PROFACTOR will be presenting technologies for automatic inspection systems for metallic surfaces as well as composite parts and  an automated endoscopic inspection system, developed in the EU-funded project Inline.

Visit us in Hall 6, Booth 6519. Contact us to get your free visitor badge: Verena Musikar.

We are looking forward to see you at the Control.
