Biotech

Biotech/Scientific

A PC-based machine vision system has been used to continuously monitor changes in biomass concentration and to control the undesirable production of colloi-dal elemental sulfur (a reactor upset condition due to an excessive concentration of inhibitory sulfide substrate) in a bioreactor containing Thiobacillus denitrificans. A field of view of a video camera was established which contained regions of different background lighting. Mean values of the distribution of red, green, and blue intensity components within corresponding regions of a digital image captured from the camera were used to monitor color changes associated with changes in biomass concentration, and to determine if the reactor was in an upset condition.

CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing)

A machine-vision-based approach is adopted to utilize its advantages of measurement flexibility, high resolution, and non-destruction. With a closed-loop feed-back control architecture, the inspection procedures are fully integrated with the production process to detect and to recover abnormal operations in a real-time mode. Implementation of such a system at a physical shop floor for socket inspection is presented as an example.

Medical

Medical

Uniforce serves a wide variety of medical applications in diagnosis, treatment, and research. Makers of hospital supplies and medical technology products know that quality inspection is critical to success. Liability for defective product, inconsistent quality, rapidly changing costs, increased global competition and pending Unique Device Identification (UDI) regulations all challenge the profitability of medical device manufacturers.

Metrology

Metrology

Manufacturing requirements for measurement range from presence verification to checking high-precision dimensional accuracy and geometrical tolerances. At-tention to the inspection environment and image quality is as important as the vision algorithms themselves. Uniforce sub-pixel measurement tools, combined with the right optics and stable lighting, provide the precision and repeatability to ensure manufacturing accuracy.

Military

Defense & Security (Military)

Uniforce is uniquely positioned to provide state-of-art imaging components and sub-systems to the Defense and Security Industry. Our commitments to innovation and performance have led us to build an extensive technology portfolio in visible imaging, from advanced image sensors through our innovative "smart camera" platforms. We also offer a broad range of UV andX-Ray imaging solutions. With Canada's only world class MEMS foundry and technology partners, we have a unique capability and access to uncooled short-, mid-, and long-wavelength infrared detector technology based on a variety of technological concepts.

Semiconductor Solar

Semiconductor/Solar

In semiconductor manufacturing, yield drives costs, so manufacturers inspect products at many points between bare wafers and packaged ICs, seeking to identify defects as soon as possible. As lithography geometries shrink, inspection systems need to be able to resolve defects on progressively deeper sub-micron scales (eg. 45 nm, 32 nm, 22 nm…). In the highest-performance situations, the features are so small that visible light can no longer resolve them, and inspection systems must use deep ultraviolet (DUV) wavelengths for illumination.
