Company Description

XARION Laser Acoustics is a provider of unique, laser-based acoustic sensors. The membrane-free optical microphone uses an IP-protected principle of operation: it detects sound based on its ability to change the speed of light. Since no mechanically movable or deformable parts are involved in this approach, the sensor comes with a linear frequency response free from mechanical resonances. The microphone shows an unprecedented frequency bandwidth exceeding state of the art solutions by a factor of ten.

Industrial Vision Systems Ltd (IVS®) is a major manufacturer of machine vision and Artificial Intelligence products whose name is synonymous with innovative image processing systems for quality control, code reading, guiding and identification. By combining software expertise with application integration, we offer a unique service - that of vision system manufacturer and vision system integrator.

Framos GmbH offers a portfolio of vision services and components to enable machines and imaging and vision technologies.

The company has been a leading global supplier of imaging products, custom vision solutions and OEM services and as a modern family business. It has assisted its customers since 1981 in the development of vision technologies.

Augmented Radar Imaging delivers radar and advanced Machine Learning algorithms to power autonomous vehicles and warehouse robots.
As part of the TKH group, LMI Technologies is focused on the design, development, and delivery of smart 3D technologies, while our sister machine vision companies are dedicated to providing high-performance camera-based solutions.
IoT Solutions

For the detection of sound waves, conventional microphones use membranes or other moving parts as intermediaries between the incoming acoustic and the resulting electrical quantity. For acoustic ultrasound sensors based on piezoelectric crystals, the approach is similar: the acoustic wave mechanically deforms the crystal. In contrast, the patented idea behind XARION’s Optical Microphone is to exploit another, completely different property of sound: the fact that sound changes the speed of light! In a rigid Fabry-Pérot laser interferometer consisting of two miniaturized mirrors, sound pressure changes the refractive index of the air. This alters the optical wavelength and the light transmission which consequently leads to the respective electrical signal. In contrast to conventional microphones, the Optical Microphone is the world's first microphone without any moving parts. No mechanically movable or physically deformable parts are involved. By consequence, the sensors exhibit a compelling frequency bandwidth, free from mechanical resonances. The sensor principle is highly sensitive. In fact, refractive index changes below 10-14 can be detected with this technology. This corresponds to pressure changes as small as 1 ?Pa.

IVS' vision inspection machines, machine vision products, special purpose vision machines, smart camera systems and peripheral vision equipment. Their machine vision systems are some of the most innovative and advanced on the market today.

The FRAMOS Embedded Vision product range includes sensor modules in addition to adapter and processing boards. This connectivity allows flexible, fast, and easy development from the first prototype, to serial production. Vision developers benefit from a modular approach and ready-to-use components that optimize their development cycles, resources, and time-to-market. In addition, the FRAMOS engineering team offers compatible software, image processing algorithms, and ready-to-use logic blocks like IP cores and SoCs.

4D radar (3D spatial, plus velocity) Consistent performance regardless of dust and weather Solid state sensor with no moving parts Wide Field of View high resolution sensor data Robust object identification minimizing false alarms among clutter
Our flagship Gocator and FocalSpec product lines help factories achieve 100% inspection, reduce waste by optimization, and improve efficiency by simplifying automation. Trusted in the most challenging applications, our 3D solutions help customers improve control of their processes and stay ahead of the competition.
