optics & vision.
High-tech and industrial system development often relies on proper optics and vision competence, for example for metrology, laser machining or inspection. With optics, we focus on the design of advanced hardware. This includes custom-made lens/mirror systems, high-resolution and hyperspectral imaging systems, 2D and 3D measurement techniques, and adaptive optics. With (machine or computer) vision, our strength lies in the advanced algorithms and the creation of optimum lighting conditions. For our vision solutions, we prefer to mainly apply standard hardware components, such as lenses and cameras, while we develop (complex) vision algorithms for image processing and analysis, incorporating machine learning if necessary.

best of both worlds.
We master both optical and vision engineering, and excel at the intersection of both disciplines. When micrometers and even nanometers are specified for resolution and accuracy, we can get the most out of the hardware and software. If a vision system with standard components does not meet the optical specifications, we can make a custom optical design. Conversely, if it is not possible to extract sufficient information from measurements with an optics system using standard algorithms, we can program complex vision algorithms for image processing and analysis.
We do not conduct fundamental research into metrology principles or new algorithms, but rather specialize in groundbreaking applications of existing methods. When optics is the key differentiator of a mechatronic system, we provide in optical system architecting. For this, we also draw on our in-depth knowledge of signal analysis and opto-electronics as well as optomechanics, featuring principles for actuation and athermalization. In addition, we take care of prototyping and small-series assembly of optical modules, including (tooling for) alignment and qualification.
